Kasie Hunt MSNBC Hair Then & Now - 2020

Photos MSNBC

Dear Kasie Hunt: I have always been a fan of yours. Love your energy and everything you do. But but BUT I can hardly bear to look at you now. What the heck have you done to your hair since becoming a Mom? OMG. You used to look so special. Stylish too. And just a year ago.  You stood out. Now, well, um, you look Mumsy, dowdy, old fashioned. And just like every one else. But not as good as some on your network with long hair,   Please forgot the dreary long hair, not, sorry to say, done so well. Your hairdresser should have a big bonk on the head, Don’t listen to people telling you to conform, to look like this.   How about going back to your old hairdresser and look? Not only easier to maintain, surely, but also more flattering.
Kasie Hunt is a MSNBC –TV Political Correspondent covering Capital Hill and Congress, and is host to KasieDC which airs on Sundays 7 – 9 pm.

Pearls Decorate Faces @ NYFW S/S - 2020

Photos: Helen Oppenheim

Pearls decorated some faces at the Mr.Hua Mrs Hua Global Fashion Collective Spring/Summer 2020 New York Fashion Week Show, a Chinese brand designed by NiuNiu Chou.  Featured here, the face pearl decoration is on Miss J. Alexander, who modeled in the show, along with a young kid, who knew how to navigate backstage alongside the fun TV Reality Star. The pearl makeup was by Michelle Strain, who created some exaggerated makeup for the dazzling show, a fusion of pop art with contemporary styling. The hair, in this case, crimped extensions, was by Jorge Luis. To see more of the hair, the makeup and the fashions, stay tuned …

“Who is this woman,” asked Patricia Fox aka @PurelyPatricia when she first saw photos from this shoot.  The New York Celeb/Assemblage Artist/Model Like No Other looks as she has never looked before in photos from this shoot with hair by Peter Gray, makeup by Mizu and amazing fashions from Kaimin.  Her hair was redder (by Rachel Bodt) the curls curlier, with the help of Shu Uemura and patiently curled with tiny tongs by Peter Gray and Carly Quist. The Belle Etoile fascinator  was perched just so and the nails by HoneyNailz were fun fun fun. The facial expression here says it all ….

Chroma 3D Hair Color Inspirations - 2020

Photo: Paula Tizzard

The hair is the canvas. Hair color possibilities are endless. Here are two painterly bobs, by Rossa Jurenas, North American Color Director at Schwarzkopf Professional, and a Finalist nominated in the Hair Color Category at NAHA 2020, awards ceremony taking place on January 25, 2020.. The color was inspired by Gucci and Chroma, which makes use of 3D holograms to produce effects like these. If you want to wear your hair color for longer, get the effect on a wig. Who can tell if it is a wig these days, if it is a good wig. Think of it as a cool hat!

Golden Globes Hair A Wash Out – 2020

Golden Globes Hair A Wash Out - 2020

Photos Helen Oppenheim With Apologies to NBC and ETV

I may have missed something but I didn’t see one interesting hairstyle at the Golden Globes. Female. Or male. It seemed a hair wash out to me! Here are some I photographed (poorly!) but all are nothing much, no creativity from the star or the hairdresser. Top L – R: Naomi Watts and Michelle Williams wearing bobs with some wave action … Phoebe Waller-Bridge with some curl action. Ellen DeGeneres has gone too short, her ears look too big. She is chatting here with Helen Mirren whose short hair looked  great and modern … Charlize Theron looks beautiful whatever but her hair is also too short. 2nd Row L-R: Jennifer Lopez’s braids were outshone by a huge dress bow … Fashion shoulder action for Cate Blanchett and Beyoncé … Joey King wore an exciting dress, not all showing here…. Awkafina looked great but that hair dangling is fini now. Bottom L-R: Brad Pitt must be growing his hair again but his tux was great… Pierce Brosman looked gorgeous, even with grey hair … his son, Dylan had the longest male hair … Jason Momoa’s long hair had too much gel perhaps … Adam Driver was very groomed … Rick Jones wore a high buttoned double breasted suit. The worst hair awards must go to Taylor Swift and Scarlett Johansen (not shown) for looking like they did their hair themselves, in one second flat, with no style at all.
