Sign of the times.  Former RNC Spokeman, Tim Miller, wore a simple strand of pearls when the MSNBC Contributor was being interviewed yesterday./ I think we can now safely say a man wearing pearls is mainstream!   After all, he is, or was, a Republican, even if a “never Trumper.”  Some trendies who have worn pearls over the last year are – from top to bottom – Romero Jennings, Director Makeup Artistry for Mac Cosmetics, backstage at the Frederick Anderson S/S 2022 New York Fashion Week Show … Kenneth Delio Loo,, Entrepreneur and guest, at the Tombogo  S/S NYFW Show  ….  Model wearing his own pearls backstage before the Tanner Fletcher F/W 2022 NYFW Presentation, hair by Mike Martinez for Cutler/Redken.

Colorific Geometric Hair NYFW - 2018

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

Trend Alert. Hair Orbits Again- 1969

Trend Alert. Hair Orbits Again- 1969

Do you know your hair history?  ’60s hairstyle orbits in  2018.  Again. This look was very popular in the late ’60s.  Similar looks were done by many, first popularized by Vidal Sassoon, but I prefer this one by Charles Booth owner of La Coupe Salons from 1967 to early 90s and introduced as The Orbit in 1969, the year the US first  landed on the moon.  Now, Redken’s Guido has designed his version for Marc Jacobs F/W New York Fashion Week Show, colorized for the 21st century by Josh Woods, so there is another trend  alert for the look, which could catch on this time. It’s not flattering to all, but is for some, as it was here for Keitha McLean, at the time the Fashion and Beauty Editor of The Montreal Star, later  a reporter at WWD, and still  later the first Editor in Chief of Miss Chatelaine now known as Flare in Toronto.   Face on, it was just a cap of hair, with a heavy round smooth fringe rising up to a soft point in the middle of the forehead. It was cut  right from the crown and the hair orbited  all around.  The back was short and the  cap graduated to a “V” on both sides. For more details and a longer  version CLICK HERE

Romantic Hair Twists by Guido @ MFW – 2017

Photo: Courtesy Redken

This romantic looking long hairstyle by Guido Paulau, Redken, was shown as one of many beautiful looks  at the Docle and Gabanna Milan Fashion Week Show for Fall 2017. To do it yourself, add a little texture with a curling iron if your hair is straight. Use fingers to pull one to two inch sections from each side of the hair and pull back behind the ears, secure with bobby pins.  Then twist hair over each side to the opposite s side and secure with additional bobby pins. (Don’t forget to hide them under the hair.)  Spray to take away fly aways and to add a touch of polish. For more by Redken’s Guido with detailed how-to’s, CLICK HERE
