Sexy Short Hair Is Now Trending - 2017

Photos: Jason Setiawan

Inspiration.  Short hair is trending – it suddenly seems refreshingly new as everyone seems to be wearing their long hair in almost the same few styles, losing the uniqueness that they could have.  Take these short styles by Sherri Jessee, looking fashionably trendy and as sexy as any long hair. The hair with movements on the left was achieved with a plethora of  large clips to “set” the hair before brushing out and with a 3/4″ curling rod close to the roots for volume and lift on the right. The bold red lip on the left and the soft pink lip with a brush of gold powder on the right both work with the pale blonde hair. These styles got a full page in my column for Spain’s Peluquerias Magazine.

Any bride would love this smooth shiny style with romantic large loose waves for her wedding day. Long lasting beautiful texture was created by Sherri Jessee. Sherri’s Hair Salon, using a 1 ¼” ceramic curling iron. “Be sure to spray each section with a heat protecting spray before you curl it,” she advises, “and clip each section on base. Allow the hair to cool, brush out the dry set with a soft bristle brush. Form the hair into soft waves and spray for shine and hold.” – First page of Helen Oppenheim  Peluquerias Magazine column, May 2017  issue.

An adorable and very charming little veil attached to a headband is for the romantic fashionable bride. Sherri Jessee, who creates the most beautiful bridal hair, likes to create shapes that “real” brides request so she added this veil to hair gently curled, then misted very lightly with hairspray. Who wants to wake up to stiff hair the next morning?

The Great Gatsby, The Movie – and More …

The Great Gatsby, The Movie and more ...

Above, Bazz Lurhamnn’s Great Gatsby Inspirations – Warner Brothers
Second collage – Sherri Jessee’s New Gatsby
Third collage – La Coupe’s ’20s inspirations, 1993







Saw the movie today.

I loved the fashions  (some by Prada and Miu Miu)  the jewelry (Tiffany’s)  the hair accessories (hardly any feathers, much more sophisticated) the hair (wigs, I think by Kerry Warn) the cloche hats, and the eye makeup very today rather than of the era but beautiful.

The 3-D was interesting, once you got used to it, some overdone, loved the titles at the end.  The movie was far from perfect but fun, better than I thought it would be with all the Baz bashing-  just forget the beloved F. Scot Fitzgerald book, enjoy it.

As Gatsby, Leonardo DiCaprio’s acting a bit O.T.T., his hair dyed blonder, a little wave, Elizabeth Debicki, who plays Jordan Baker, didn’t have much of a part but she came off as a future star – we’ll be hearing more of her, and Daisy’s husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton.)  Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan was lovely, wearing great fashions and jewelry.   Baz Lurhmann was Baz, better than Moulin Rogue, which I didn’t like, but still Baz with his Long Island computer-generated , sometimes cartoonish Gatsby filmed in Australia.

Look for hair and fashion inspiration in these three collages of photos –  top collage, of Daisy (Carey Mulligan), Gatsby (Leonoard di Caprio) and Jordan (Elizabeth Debicki) from Baz Lurhmann’s Great Gatsby which opened nationwide “everywhere” in the US today, Friday, May 10,  and will open the Cannes Festival on May 15, out of the competition.

Oscars?  Only for Costume Design, I think.  Maybe Special Effects.

Then check out some great photo-generated Long-Island shots by Roberto Ligestri for Sherri Jessee’s New Great Gatsby Collection featuring Nick Evanovich as Gatsby in Tom Ford, styled by the late-great David Widjaja,  and two photos from La Coupe’s 1993 Creative Evening, hair by Kim Lepine, Photos by David Webber.  The vintage hair accessories were and are spot-on.
