Botticelli, the early Renaissance Italian painter (1445-1510) has inspired many great hair looks, but perhaps never one quite like this wonderful romantic lilac hair with a knotted macramé hair cap by that Australian whirlwind, Sharon Blain. The Hair Art Educator, famous for her Boot Camps, took endless hours to create and perfect this inspirational look – one of many stunning styles she wowed with at the Intercoiffure America Canada Fall Atelier for 2017 held in New York, which resulted in two pages published in the December issue of Spain’s Peluquerias Magazine.   Stay tuned for more …

Day 2. Seen on Scene. Fab fashionistas and a serious fashion alert at Mercedes-Benz for Fall 2015.

Top Left To Right: Veil Fashion Alert. The veil returns. Big time. Worn casually.  Jazmin Ivy Rodriguez with her veiled cloud of tulle, slanting over one eye … Danijela Lazarevic wore her slanting-over-one-eye veil over a knit cap, with headphones needed as a producer of the Mongol show … Seth Jubb, wearing a great floral jacket from Zara Men, was handing out a great issue of The Daily Front Row (Second NYFW  issue, mostly on models, many wearing veils) . … Lucas Giadeno backstage at the Mongol show, lilac shaded hair, and underneath his fringed bracelet, both spot on

Bottom Left To Right: Two-Tone dreads are piled on top of the head of Jarrid Jones, a fashion photographer at the Mongol show … Stephan Chung has a great head of hair, worn with leather/jewelry by Phil Harris …. last four photos, fashion/jewelry designer, Phil Harris, in great long peachy orange corduroy coat, with interesting details and very wide tartan pants, plus one rather large earring.

(Note: Most of the fashionista photos will be posted on the  website soon, worth a look to really see the details.)
