Guys, if you want the best of barbers, a haircut, perhaps a five minute hot-towel massage, a neck shave and if you want an experience like no other, in a turn-of-the-century environment surrounded by historical antiques and memorabilia, visit the NYC Barber Shop Museum on the Upper West Side.  The Master Barber, Arthur Rubinoff, CEO of Reamir & Co. is the Founder and Art Historian, a fourth-generation barber residing in a small space jam-packed with various vintage artifacts dedicated to preserving the rich history of barbering, collected over decades, first by his Father than him. Included in this feast for the unusual are antique chairs like the Louis Vuitton one photographed here, mirrors, vintage razor clippers, hairdryers, umpteen barber poles and other unexpected memorabilia, some of which date back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Barbershop Museum is just one working barbershop Rubinoff owns.   Three different packages starting at $47 are offered,  inspired by the 19th, 20th, and 21st Century, all combined with progressive techniques and looks. The $74 package comes with a Reamir haircare or shaving product, the $118 package comes with complimentary champagne, black caviar! And, yes, the poster in the collage above features a young Ronald Reagan in a shaving cream ad from the 30s, one of many vintage photos. For more photos and info, CLICK HERE

Downton Abbey Movie September - 2019

Collage by helenoppenheim.com

The Downton Abbey movie is coming to theaters in the US on September 20, 2019. A continuation of the popular TV series, it has much of the same cast and will hopefully be The Movie To See. With some inspirational fashion and beauty images. But from the images so far, the back and side views of Lady Mary’s bob is, um, disappointing. The front view is great though!!

The Fashion Group Moon Photos - 1969

Ah, nostalgia. Some of the space age fashion and hair photos from The Fashion Group Montreal Press Release. In 1969. The Year Americans landed on the Moon. Which became the theme of the Press Release showcasing Montreal’s leading fashion designers at the time. (Apologies, The Press Release is lost in my vast Archive. When I find the Press Release, I will credit all.) As well as art directing the photos, I also did the PR for the Fashion Group in Montreal,  who produced the Fashion Show and  Ball of the Year.   For more photos and more of the story  in an Album  archived on this website, CLICK HERE

Aveda’s Jon Reyman really worked to get this coil just so backstage at the Fashion Hong Kong New York Fashion Week Show which took place at Industria Stuidios. And he did. The significant sculptural hair coil worked well with the About Heaven Please+ fashions, one of three designers showing their fashions with a difference, each with a different  hair look and different makeup.  The eyes had delicate black lines here and there, more on one eye, no mascara, neutral lips, by Aveda’s Janell Geason. To see more from this show and a Hair How-To do this impressive coil, CLICK HERE

Luxury Unapologetic Hair To Wow - 2019

Photo: Richard Monsieurs

This is hair to make an entrance.   It is OTT (Over The Top) with the help of hair extensions.  It is “unapologetic hair” for those who want to be noticed.  Imagine the look without the sweep of hair rising up to there at the front, and it is less OTT and still beautiful.   Nominated for NAHA (The North American Hairstyling Awards) in 2019, it is by the Ulta Pro Team which includes Danielle Keasling who  said ” I love a good luxury look and this is all that!!”  Yes, it is. Wow!
