It is 6 months after Rachel’s Saga began, after her hair turned green in the swimming pool, after John Sahag with colorist Jennifer Chune started to create new color and hair for Rachel Bick. The look now is modern, energetic, casual, Sahag-style.   For more photos and incredible descriptions from the Rachel Part 11 album, click HERE and, remember, you cannot call yourself a true Sahag fan if you do not read every magical word under most photos in the Rachel Part 1, 11 and 111 albums!

Rugged and smooth, rough and refined, strong and soft, this was the hair by John Sahag and his Workshop Team for the Cynthia Rowley Spring/Summer 1997 Fashion Week show.

John Sahag - Rachel Saga Part ll - 1996

From the Rachel Saga Part ll Collection by John Sahag – 1996.  The  hair color saga continued from Part l with this Multi-Cut.  It is now 6 months since Rachel Bick’s hair turned green after a swim in a pool filled with chlorine.  With colorist, Jennifer Chune, Sahag decided to get her black roots grow in and, with a burst of creative energy, he took the cut to somewhere else to create a very new texture within the cut.  “This opened up new horizons in my imagination …  unlimited multi-shapes within one cut, integrating Rachel’s new regrowth for a totally modern approach to color,” said the legendary hairdresser.  For more, go to HairThen, John Sahag, Press Photos, Rachel’s Saga Part ll on helenoppenheim.com

A Betty Grable look was modernized by Karmela Lozina and the John Sahag Workshop Team for Kati Stern, the designer for Venexiana at her NY Fashion Week Fall 2008 show.    The hair was swept up into ponytails, hair extensions were pre-set in rollers, having been straightened, curled, spiraled. They were then pinned on the front of the head as barrel curls –  “like glamour meets rocky billy,” said Karmela.    For more from the show click here:

John Sahag Ponytail Extravaganza – 1997

Photo: © David Webber

The legendary John Sahag somtimes sketched his hair ideas before a fashion show. As he did here for the Gen Art NY Fashion Week Show for Fall 1997. And look at the result of the bottom sketch! Not just a ponytail!

Hair was designed with a lot of action – for one designer, a ponytail extravaganza!  This show was a “Tour de Force” for John Sahag, always an original, and featured 8 up and coming fashion designers who each designed 10 outfits. Sahag and his Workshop Team created 8 different – and unique – hair looks, one for each designer. It’s worth a click to see the hair. At the end of the album, some of what went on behind the scenes, click here:
