Stunning statement earrings dripped with pearls at the Badgley Mischka New York Fashion Week Show for Fall 2017. The lips were tdf. “Velvet slippers were my inspiration for the lips,” said Alice Lane. “The lips were matte and applied in layers. Eye Shadow was pressed into the lipstick for a fabric-like effect and added texture.” The makeup artist worked with Inglot Soft Precision Lip Liner #61, Lipstick #295, Freedom Eyeshadow #450.   To see gorgeous gowns and glam Peter Gray hair from this show, CLICK HERE

Here are two looks on the same girl of the sexy hair by Peter Gray at the New York Fashion Week Badgley Mischka Fashion Show for Fall 2017.  The hair was inspired by Melrose Avenue and Rodeo Drive girls in L.A.   The Rodeo Drive girl was more edgy, bold, with more volume.   The Melrose girl had loose romantic waves and curls.   The Red Carpet fashions by Mark Badgley and James Mischka were romantic, dazzling, shimmering, highly embellished.

Post-Apocalyptic Extravaganza Hair – 2017

Peter Gray and his team put on a spectacular post-apocalyptic extravaganza of a hair show at the Contessa Awards for 2017 in Toronto. The dedicated team, too many to mention, worked around the clock for days to wow, and they did. With futuristic innovation and elegance. The hair (large photo) was rolled up and back, big, other hair was waved like no other, others rising up to there with twists and turns, braids Mohawk-style with plenty of back interest, all offset with some amazing tattoos. These are two pages in my July 2017 column in Peluquerias Magazine. For larger photos and more from this show of shows, click HERE

Gold Goes To The Head – 2015

Gold Goes To The Head - 2015

Gold will surely come to the Trump White House! Be prepared to go for gold. And why not on the head if you want to make a gold hair fashion statement like no other? By Peter Gray for Beauty Pages Magazine, this golden treasure was inspired by Persephone, the Goddess of Springtime and Rebirth in Greek Mythology. To get the look, the hairdresser mixed metallic gold and copper powders into a paste, which he then applied to the hair.  He used the Gray magic to work drops to drip strategically here and there, like tendrils, with the long hair twisted to end in a coil of gold to one side.  Brilliant.   To see the back view and more Peter Gray magic, click HERE

Pink Fur, Faces, Nails – 2016

Photos: Paul Morejón

Think pink fur, so glamorous, as seen here at the Area New York Fashion Week Show for Fall 2016. Pink fur, all pinks, will be big this fall and winter. Worn here with a  metallic pink lamé dress, designed by Beckett Fogg and Plotrek Panszczyk. The nails, by Tracylee had Swarovski crystals in strategic places here and there, not on every nail. The color was “Make Me Blush” by Red Carpet. Faces were by Georgina Graham for MAC Cosmetics, inspired by “cool girls who have a minimal street feeling,” The lip was a delicious matte chocolate, a new Mac Eye Gloss was introduced. To see the “Hair Strapping” by Peter Gray, click HERE
