This is the Peluquerias Magazine cover, #555, the May 2018 issue. The hair, by Jamie Furlan, Xiang Hair, Melbourne, Ausgtralia, is an intriguing asymmetric mix, short on one side, waving longer over one eye on the other, the top flying here and there. This issue of the hair fashion art magazine like no other featured my bridal issue column. To see more Peluquerias covers over the decades, CLICK HERE

This fabulous flower fantasy features flowers in a riot of colors, shapes and sizes pinned and wired onto a wig which was turned upside down and “sprayed to death,” said Edward Tricomi, Warren-Tricomi Salons of his wondrous hair rising to a peak way up to there, an image he has used to help promote his products and his new Education programs to learn the Warren-Tricomi way, and published in the March issue of Peluquerias Magazine, in my column.

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.

 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.
