Colorific Geometric Hair NYFW - 2018

Photos: Courtesy Redken

Colorific Haircuts for the Marc Jacobs New York Fashion Week Show for Fall 2018 were by Redken’s Guido with Josh Woods,who colored the Vidal Sassoon ’60s-inspired modernized cuts on real hair, on nine of the world’s top models. No wigs.  The looks, as seen here in the July issue of Peluquerias Mazgazine, were all about skill, precision, placement – “knowing exactly where the place color to emphasize the  haircuts is key for these looks,” said the colorist, who wanted the girls to look like they were lit in a night club, with neon and strobe lighting in our references.”  And let’s not forget congratulations to Marc Jacobs, an American designer who is not content with safe nothing boring hair walking his runways!  For more on this. bigger and more photos, CLICK HERE

Short Hair Cuts With Style – 2018

Photos: Richard Monsieurs for NAHA/Professional Beauty Association

Two short hair cuts with style for those with style, by Ammon Carver, Ammon Carver Studio, NYC, a Finalist in the Hair Cutting Category of the North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) for 2018. These photos got two pages in the June issue of Peluquerias Magazine.  The hair on the left is a short cut, finished with panache. But it can also be worn classic casual. The style on the right is for the avant-garde but it is versatile and can be styled less avant-garde!  It is easy to forget in this day of long hair with everyone looking the same, that a short hair cut can give someone personality – it can also be worn this way and that. And it should also be remembered that not everyone can cut short hair as well as they should! The Winners for NAHA will be announced in Las Vegas on July 29. Stay tuned …

Want To Be Published Internationally - 2018

???? by

Cool idea. How about one of you hair talents out there creating something new, exciting, original. Perhaps spectacular.  A great photo. Or more.  Great hair. Great model. Great everything. If I love what you do, and do not see it all over the place, I will publish you beautifully in Peluquerias Magazine, an international magazine, minimum full page. Maybe two. Maybe a cover. And on my Blog, FB, Instagram, etc. You only need one magic shot for a full page. Can be more, perhaps for another page. Next column open is September. Deadline mid-June but I need to know before if something will be in the works.  Take a look around my blog on this website, put Peluquerias Magazine in the Search Box top right.  Need guidance before you submit?

Veil Re-Envisioned As Hair Accessory– 2017

Photo: John Rawson

A veil of hair highlights made of extensions acts like a fringe and was placed over an elegant ponytail knotted and looped on top of the head. “The updo re-envisions the veil as a hair accessory,” according to Silas & Dorothy Tsang of Blushes in Canada, who said the hairstyling play on texture was inspired by the fashion designer Issey Miyake – “When Modernism Meets Tradition.” This and two other inspirational holiday hair looks by the Canadians made the first page of my column in the December issue of Peluquerias Magazine.
