Veil Re-Envisioned As Hair Accessory– 2017

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.

 Favorite Brooches On Holiday Hair – 2017

Photo: Matthew Holler

It’s holiday time, and time to dress hair. Do as Cheyanne Clark does. She is obsessed with hair accessories and pins her own decorative brooches to her hair, as here on this naturally curly textured hair which was redefined with a 1″ curling iron, each curl pinned and cooled, a low ponytail at the back and her favorite brooch added. She also likes to add her earrings as well as brooches sometimes, all one one head.  This is one of three fab looks published in my Peluquerias Magazine December 2017 column with a full page. You can find her on Instagram @cheyanne_hair as I did, also on www. CheyanneClark.com/

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 …

Seen on Scene, Fab Fashionista, Patricia Fox @purelypatricia who is photographed in the front row of the Academy of Art New York Fashion Week Show for Spring 2018.  The New York assemblage artist/interior designer/style collaborator is wearing a red wire ornament on her head, manipulated and configured to what she calls a “Head Whimsey,” which was published internationally with a full page in the December issue of  Spain’s Peluquerias Magazine. She is wearing a jacket from Janette Platinum, ’80s vintage plastic cascade earrings, both from her private collection.  As to those eyebrows: “I am my own style, and do my own makeup – the blue eyebrows are an extension of myself.

Large Loose Wonderful Wedding Waves – 2017

Photo: Nathan Mays

Any bride would love this smooth shiny style with romantic large loose waves for her wedding day. Long lasting beautiful texture was created by Sherri Jessee. Sherri’s Hair Salon, using a 1 ¼” ceramic curling iron. “Be sure to spray each section with a heat protecting spray before you curl it,” she advises, “and clip each section on base. Allow the hair to cool, brush out the dry set with a soft bristle brush. Form the hair into soft waves and spray for shine and hold.” – First page of Helen Oppenheim  Peluquerias Magazine column, May 2017  issue.

Two of the three brides, all with glorious, gorgeous hair, art directed by Jorge Luis for Privé by Laurent D Salon, as in the May issue of my column in Peluquerias Magazine.  Left: A glorious look by Jorge Luis.  He made two ponytails, one placed high, one lower, backbrushed for a polished look on the sides, then gathered the two, sprayed, and added flowers on the lower side. Right: Laurent D’s gorgeous half up, half down beauty was backcombed to one side for a casual effect and he crimped a small section at the front to simulate a veil. Keke Cifferello’s makeup for Tom Ford included, left, a stark streak of glittered green over the eye and, right, Velvet Cherry Lipstick.
