In Action Again @ Intercoiffure - 2018

Photo: Ann Lawlor

Here I am back in action after a tough time this year. I am photographing WorldGreat Peter Gray for the Hairbrained Teach In backstage at Intercoiffure America/Canada last Sunday. What’s he up to? Well, for now, let’s say Peter Gray is deliciously insane, a hair maniac, when he isn’t doing editorials and ads for the tops the world over. Hope to have backstage photos of the two-day Atelier event archived soon on my website. Stay tuned …

Double French Twist Hair @ NYFW – 2018

Double French Twist Hair @ NYFW - 2018

Photos: Helen Oppenheim

The hair at the Badgley Mischka Fall 2018 New York Fashion Week Show was a modern take on the classic French twist – “a small simple shape achieved with a double twist,” said Peter Gray who created the hair using NuMe.  “Twist one way, then the other,” advised the hairdresser, who said he didn’t use many pins, about 6 to 8 and that he sprayed onto the brush, not straight into the hair.  The fashions were inspired by Caravaggio, the Italian painter (1571-1610) – he had an influence  on Baroque paintings, which can be seen in the fashion details.  For more on this show, CLICK HERE
