The Oscars 2021. Some lovely fashions. Hair not so interesting, boring!  Oscars not so interesting. I didn’t want to see any of the movies …   I just couldn’t get interested in the Oscars this year. In fact, I recorded, then watched a Season 4 episode of Velvet, Spanish TV series on Netflix I am addicted to now.  First time I wasn’t glued to the TV for  the Oscars in decades.    To see more, better quality photos (!) and who is who, CLICK HERE


Queen’s Gambit Hair Flicks – 2021

Queen's Gambit Hair Flicks – 2021

Hair Trend Alert.  Anya Taylor-Joy’s hair flicks in The Queen’s Gambit, the much-watched Netflix TV series, in which she played Beth Harmon, an orphan who had a genius for chess and a madness brought on by pills and alcohol. We first see her as a kid in the late ’50s, an orphan, with brutally short micro-bangs, then with short early ’60’s dos of the era, but her longer hair with the flicks in 1968 is what caught my eye, perhaps to be adapted and less perfect for the 21st century. The red hair, wigs throughout, was by Daniel Parker, who was inspired by Natalie Wood, Lauren Bacall, Grace Kelly. The Limited Series, almost hypnotic to watch (the pace, the music, the everything) which may or may not be continued, was adapted by Scott Frank from Walter Tevi’s novel with the same title, was co-created with Alan Scott. Some great acting, especially from actress, director, writer Marielle Heller, also helped make each of the 7 episodes a joy to watch, whether one plays chess or not.

A hair star arrived last night at the 75th Annual Golden Globes. Katherine Langford looked Hollywood Glam for the 21st Century and wore the most original hair look of the evening. Her long waved hair, by Christian Wood, was swept to one side and swished with glittering star clips of various sizes by Jennifer Behr. The 21 year old Aussie, at her first Globes, was nominated Best Actress in a TV Drama in Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why” for her role as Hannah Baker.  She wore a custom Prada long sleeved black deep V-necked gown with jeweled detailing matching her starry hair jewelry and earrings by Choppard. A hair star is born …
