Reverse Braids, Badgley Mischka - Fall 2013

Pboto: Helen Oppenheim

Reverse braids at the back of Peter Gray’s Hitchcock Lady hair for the Badgley Mischka red-carpet Fall 2013 fashions during NY Fashion Week were “fun, young, accessible, doable, also they can last two or three days!” said Gray.  Inspired by Kim Novak in the thriller, Vertigo, and Tippi Hendren in “The Birds.”   For more Hitchcock Lady hair, how to do it on long and short hair and fab fashions, go to NY Fashion Week, Fall 20913 on www.helenoppenheim.com

For Carolina Herrars’s Fall 2013 NY Fashion Week show, Orlando Pita, Orlo Salon, designed sleek mid-parted styles – elegant hair rolls  designed close to the head, tightly coiled, wider at the front.

The modern, graphic 40s-inpsired styles went with the many high necks in the fabulous show.  The fashions were for today’s dressed-up woman with fur details on the sleeves, waists, necks, dresses, everywhere – all worn with flirty skirt movements and red lips by Diane Kendal for Mac.   For more, go to NY Fashion Week, Fall 2013 on www.helenoppenheim.com

Fairies and woodland nymphs, haunting beauties, as in Max Reinhardt’s 1935 film “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” inspired Peter Gray’s diaphanous dreamy hair and the romantic floaty fashions at Badgley Mischka’s NY Fashion Week Spring 2013 show.  The romantic ribbon-like hair had small random crimps, an airy effect as it floated angelically, with tiny flowers here and there as the finishing touch, That’s Mark Badgley, right, and James Mischka, left, in the collage,  For more and a tutorial, see Fashion Week Spring 2013 on www.helenoppenheim.com

Posted by on Dec 13, 2012 in Helen's Blog | 0 comments

 

Chignons with Beads for Glittering Nights

 

Shimmering silver, gold or bronze beads were embedded in strands of hair for these exquisite chignons, perfect for glittering nights.  By Orlando Pita, Orlo Salon NY for Moroccanoil at the Carolina
Herrera Spring 2010 Mercedes-Benz NY Fashion Week show.

The beads showed through easy-going, gently twisted, tucked-under knots resting elegantly on napes.  “The hair,” said Orlando Pita, “wasn’t stiff or structured.”  For more, and some photos how to re-create  this unique look, go to Fashion Weeks, Spring 2010.
