A hot trend is men wearing a pearl necklace.  Sometimes on its own, sometimes with other necklaces.  (It’s  only a matter time of before pearl necklaces return for women too!) Here are two trendies seen during New York Fashion Week for SS2022.  Left: A model at the TOMBOGO Show held on The Terrace of Spring Studios.  Right: Romeo Jennings, amazing Mac makeup artist with gelled stylized waves, at the Frederick Anderson show held at 583 Park Avenue.  Stay tuned for Albums with inspirational photos from both shows on helenoppenheim.com

Cyborg hair, makeup and fashions at the Kaimin New York Fashion Show for Fall/Winter 2019 were from another planet. Peter Gray created his interpretation of Cyborg haircuts calling them “brutalist haircuts and shapes inspired by the architecture of Zaha Hadid and Sassoon Old School Classics. He said he was “going in with all guns blazing, and it’s going to be crazy.” It was. Here’s one of his wigs worn with cool Cyborg makeup by Romero Jenning.  For more fab fashions and hair photos, CLICK HERE

I have always loved the feeling of this dreamy ’20s-inspired Geisha Bride from the Elisa Palomino New York Fashion Week Show in 2011. Yes, the hair by Jon Reyman for Aveda is somewhat big, and exaggerated, as is the large squashy flower with feathers, but the fashions, the model, the photograph, the bride are all fabulous divine wonderful, don’t you think?

Think pink fur, so glamorous, as seen here at the Area New York Fashion Week Show for Fall 2016. Pink fur, all pinks, will be big this fall and winter. Worn here with a  metallic pink lamé dress, designed by Beckett Fogg and Plotrek Panszczyk. The nails, by Tracylee had Swarovski crystals in strategic places here and there, not on every nail. The color was “Make Me Blush” by Red Carpet. Faces were by Georgina Graham for MAC Cosmetics, inspired by “cool girls who have a minimal street feeling,” The lip was a delicious matte chocolate, a new Mac Eye Gloss was introduced. To see the “Hair Strapping” by Peter Gray, click HERE

Two Tone Red Lips

Red lips were hot news for Fall. And forever.  For something different, try these two-tone red lips by Makky for MAC Cosmetics, as seen at the Nanette Lepore Fall 2010 NY Fashion Week show. He used MAC’s Magenta Lip Pencil on the top, Lip Forever, a burgundy, on the bottom. Interesting but subtle. TDF. For some great hair and more lips from this show, click HERE

Glitter glittering is cool right now. The New York Fashion Week Presentation for Nicola Formichetti’s Nicopanda featured punk, goth, romance and glitter on faces for her and him. Maki Ryoke, Mac Makeup Artist, blew the glitter on in strategic places, protecting the rest of the face and the hair by Peter Gray, which included three different hair looks presented in three different rooms. Here, the hair is crimped in here and there on her and glam, softly waved, behind one ear on him, worn with an athletic hoodie look tied with a satin bow. For more on the Nicopanda trend-setting genderless ones like no others, click HERE
