Inspiration & References


LOVE these hairdos, photos were taken by Joseph Szaboin 1978 at a Rolling Stones concert. I used these references recently along with street hair ideas I’d picked up off the streets of downtown LA for a story I was shooting with Rankin.

Rankin (more on Rankin in my next story) gave me “carte blanche” to shoot hair how I wanted …that’s a dream job. I’m often booked for very polished luxury hair, the irony is, if they let me free, I will always prefer to go down a rock & roll 70’s touching on 80’s road. It was such a cool moment for hair. Styles became liberated  and very individual.

          How amazing is life! As we get older and wiser when life tohrws us curve balls, we just knock out of the park instead of striking out! Thanks for sharing your story.
