'00s Sahag's Grey Hair Before Trend - 2003

In 2003, the legendary John Sahag presented this gorgeous grey-haired look at a special event, Fuse, for the International Beauty Show (IBS) who haven’t seen a show like it before, or since. And I have been every year for decades. This was way before the trend for grey hair, which continues today, now more than ever. The style was just one stunning look on the theme of the show, inspired by futuristic butterflies, which fluttered and flew, all wrapped, twisted, knotted, some braided into butterfly shapes. Butterfly tattoos finished the looks with amazing extraordinary fashions by Gaelyn & Cianfarani. To see more beautiful butterflies, CLICK HERE

You Can Be Grey For The Night! - 2017

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

You can be grey for one night, or until the next shampoo.  Can’t think why anyone would before they need to be grey.  But this trendy man loves his temporary grey hair. I photographed him on the floor of the International Beauty Show (IBS) for 2017, on the exhibition floor for Manic Panic.  He said he had wash-out Manic Panic Silver gelled on his dark hair and pointed out there’s also a gold and all the Day-Glo Color Gels of the moment.  More from the IBS Show, CLICK HERE And the next album, to the right.
