John Sahag As Never Seen Before – 1985

Photo: John Kisch

A treat for John Sahag fans.  I came across this rare photo of John Sahag looking as I never saw him before – hair slicked back, white shirt, tie, very formal.  According to John Kisch, Photographer, Author, Archivist, who took this great photo of the legendary John Sahag, it was needed for a license to open his first salon in NYC.  I did the PR for that first salon in 1985, worked for him 3 years later, 1994-1997 and I never saw him with his hair like this, or in a white shirt and tie.   To see a carousel of  photos Kisch has posted of Sahag on his Instagram page, CLICK HERE then click the arrows,  and to see more of Sahag The Man archived on my website, CLICK HERE

Fun Festive Hair and Lashes – 1966

Fun Festive Hair and Lashes – 1966

Photo: Irving Penn

“How cool is cool?” was the headline in the June 1966 issue of Vogue Magazine about this Irving Penn “little crazy” rare beauty photo of Verushchka, Countess Vera von Lehndorff-Steinhort.  Lucite over the moon hair rings (from Paraphernalia) and  Dynel fake lashes “the size of eyeshades” were “wrought” by Giorgio di Sant’Angelo – then “a young Florentine artist now playing around with New York Fashion.” Vogue said the hair was actually all Veruschka’s own, without a single hairpiece.    There is no hairdresser credit, but it does look rather Ara Gallant. Or maybe Sant’Angelo did it!   (If anyone knows of another hairdresser, let us know.). Max Factor’s then new Frosterinos Pinkberry Meringue shades the lips.  (No credit for a makeup artist.) Knitted wool dress by Rudi Gernreich for Harmon Knitwear.  Those were the days.

Joy Reid of MSNBC Hair Improved- 2021

 Joy Reid of MSNBC Hair Improved- 2021

Photos Helen Oppenheim with Thanks to MSNBC

I am getting so many comments, some not printable, about Joy Reid’s hair, mostly negative, some highly negative, that I thought I should update you and tell you either Joy or her producer have had a change of heart.  Her hair is now more normal so you can all concentrate on her MSNBC 7 pm  Reid Out nightly program and her take on that is going on, with no hair angst.  Sometimes, her hair goes a bit awry, then I think she still needs a new hairdresser, but for the most part, she is getting her hair act together.
