Gorgeous Gwyneth Paltrow by Sahag - 1996

Collage by helenoppenheim.com

This is Gwyneth Paltrow with hair straighter than straight by John Sahag, in 1996. I think she was one of the first celebs, if not the very first, to wear her hair this straight. This is the quintessential look that the legendary John Sahag made famous. Before flat irons.   He used his John Sahag Revitalizing Drops on Gwyneth Paltrow’s hair here, I think one of the very first people to be able to experience them; I heard Gwyneth loved them, and the look.   I have no photo credit for this photo, but it is very Sahag and I have to show this hair because it so important to the Sahag legacy. If anyone knows the photographer, magazine or event, credits will be added immediately. For more Gwyneth Paltrow by John Sahag, click

(Note: Brigitte Callister, now Brigitte Armstrong, said in 2016, that the color in this photo was lighter in reality, not as gold and dark.)

 Memories, Balloons from John Sahag - 1996

When I was John Sahag’s “Ambassadress” I had some minor surgery at the end of 1996. Just as I was recovering at home after, John Sahag cheered me up more than I can possibly say by sending me zillions of party balloons, a smiley balloon and white orchids.   How wonderful was that?    This is just one of the Sahag stories I have about his generous side.
