Vidal Sassoon's Marlene Dietrich – 1980

Photos: Peluquerias Magazine

At the end of 1980, I produced a hair show in Barcelona, Spain with Vidal Sassoon US. There were 2,000 people in the audience for a spectacular event hosted by Lluis Llongueras, Llongueras.   This is the Sassoon Marlene Dietrich played by a Spanish model, who had never heard of Marlene! She ad libbed to Marlene’s career signature song “Falling in Love Again” from the German 1930 movie – “The Blue Angel”   Later in the show the Sassoon Team showed their versions of the Modern Marlene hairstyles from a recent collection.   To see those, CLICK HERE and scroll down. (This is the first time this has been seen since 1980 and is part of a multi-page spread of all the looks shown from the show in Barcelona’s Peluquerias Magazine.)

Isn’t She Lovely – 2019

Posted by on Jan 26, 2019 in Helen's Blog | 3 comments

This pull through crown braid by Sherri Jessee is not only very pretty, shows up big, but is also secure, each loop being secured by a tiny elastic.  The remaining hair was wrapped on a 3/4 inch Curling Wand for texture – "great for curling long hair quickly," advised the hairdresser, whose model here is Miss Virginia Teen USA 2016, Gracyn Blackmore.  This photo got a full page in the January 2019 issue of Peluquerias Magazine published in Barcelona.  Hair & Makeup: Sherri Jessee, Sherri's Salon, Bristol,VA … Photo: Nathan Mays

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

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 helenoppenheim.com

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?
