Hair History. 1996. The legendary John Sahag was inspired by the New York skyline for this haircut and color on the world-famous model Siberian-born Irina Pantaeva.   Sahag described the hair color by Dario Arias as “unnatural-looking, with unusual unexpected frankly fake sheer sparking tones of bright reds, burgundy and purple, coppers and browns all woven in to alter her base color, which was black.  For every day, the distinctive abstract colors and shapes could be hidden.

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

Photo: Helen Oppenheim

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

90s The 1st Hair Straighter Than Straight - 1996

Photo: Unknown

1996.  This is Gwyneth Paltrow with hair straighter than straight by John Sahag.  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, one of the very first people to be able to experience them; he told me Gwyneth loved them.  After 20 years, the look has not dated and has stood the test of time.

Here’s a photo which could be a collector’s item and is part of hair history from way back when Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt were a hot ticket item.

Gwyneth’s hair was cut and designed by the legendary John Sahag, Brad’s by Deedra Norris of the John Sahag Workshop, who also styled both superheads for this premiere.

Short Soft Sahag Hair No Hard Edges – 1985

This short soft hair cut is so Sahag. It was done in 1985.  And is just as wonderful today as it was then.  It has no hard edges, and is all perfectly harmonious, as a short or any haircut should be. From a 12 page editorial in American Vogue, all with hair by the legendary John Sahag and, later in the year, Vogue published this look in black and white with more great Sahags in an article on the opening of his first John Sahag Workshop, in October of that year.  To see the Vogue article and more Sahag editorials, CLICK HERE
