Why NYFW Hair Sponsors Are Vanishing - 2018

WHY?

 

 

 

Dear Fashion Designers. Dear Fashion Stylists. Dear Lead Hairdressers.  Hair sponsor problems ahead. Just a little warning. But one which everyone should take very seriously. Hair sponsors are fading or opting out of doing NYFW shows altogether. Many big name hair sponsors have already vanished from the NYFW runways, others are doing far less shows.  Why? Well, this may ruffle a few feathers. Be warned. But there’s enough blame to go around. The major fashion magazines and many fashion advertisers publish page after page of dreary or repetitive hair which inspires no one in the hair world and is often unflattering to mere mortals.   The fashion designers and fashion stylists, both of whom rule at NYFW, do not want interesting hair to walk the runways.  They want what they see in the fashion magazines, or on too many red carpet celebs. Yes, most designers want safe hair, boring hair, nothing hair. Most lead hairdressers take the easy way out, they do what is wanted. Not all hairdressers, some make the effort and try to offer creative, interesting appropriate hair but all too often to deaf ears.  Not always, but far too  often.  If the hair is not interesting, not newsworthy even in some small way, it is hard for sponsors to get good or, worse, any press, and if they do not do this, it is not good business to continue season after season.    Once they have got over the fun, the atmosphere, they start to sponsor less shows, then sponsor none and put their promotional budgets elsewhere. Also less and less good hairdressers are wanting to be part of a NYFW hair team because the hair is so booooring.   So, everyone, be aware.

Short Sassy Hair Tumbled Reds Coppers – 2018

Photo: Roberto LIgresti

Inspiration. Short hair is making a comeback for 2018. This short soft sassy style has style. “The textured asymmetric layered hair was razor cut and colored in tumbled reds and coppers,” said Vivienne Mackinder, who knows how to make an asymmetric cut look soft and feminine, not hard edged at all. The hair was painted with slices of color intensities and free hand painted with the copper and reds by Joico.  How to get this look, check out Vivienne Mackinder Workshops, CLICK HERE

Sexy Short Hair Is Now Trending – 2017

Sexy Short Hair Is Now Trending - 2017

Photos: Jason Setiawan

Inspiration.  Short hair is trending – it suddenly seems refreshingly new as everyone seems to be wearing their long hair in almost the same few styles, losing the uniqueness that they could have.  Take these short styles by Sherri Jessee, looking fashionably trendy and as sexy as any long hair. The hair with movements on the left was achieved with a plethora of  large clips to “set” the hair before brushing out and with a 3/4″ curling rod close to the roots for volume and lift on the right. The bold red lip on the left and the soft pink lip with a brush of gold powder on the right both work with the pale blonde hair. These styles got a full page in my column for Spain’s Peluquerias Magazine.

Want To Be Published Internationally - 2018

???? by helenoppenheim.com

Cool idea. How about one of you hair talents out there creating something new, exciting, original. Perhaps spectacular.  A great photo. Or more.  Great hair. Great model. Great everything. If I love what you do, and do not see it all over the place, I will publish you beautifully in Peluquerias Magazine, an international magazine, minimum full page. Maybe two. Maybe a cover. And on my Blog, FB, Instagram, etc. You only need one magic shot for a full page. Can be more, perhaps for another page. Next column open is September. Deadline mid-June but I need to know before if something will be in the works.  Take a look around my blog on this website, put Peluquerias Magazine in the Search Box top right.  Need guidance before you submit?
