Tweet I hope you’re all having a wonderful summer day, complete with everything I loved about summer in the 1980s: pool floats, snake-patterned bathing suits and teased-up hair. Well, maybe not the teased-up hair. That never went well with pools.

Tweet Last week, I asked my hair guru, Keith Carpenter, for a mullet-y haircut. As the Beastie Boys song “Mullet Head” goes, “Cut the sides, don’t touch the back!” I was inspired by Lady Gaga’s longtime friend and DJ Lady Starlight. I was hyp-mo-tized by Starlight’s hair at Gaga’s Roseland concert this spring. #482086591 / […]

Tweet The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala takes place tonight, but the event wasn’t always a spring thing — it used to be held in December. I went three times in the 1990s, when regular people could buy reasonably priced tickets for dessert and dancing after the celebrity dinner. I still have […]

Tweet Whenever a celebrity cuts her hair into a pixie — or pretends to — lots of other women are tempted to do the same. Not me, though. I had ultra-short hair for years. I’m pixied out. I previously posted this photo of my supershort 1992 ‘do. But I just rediscovered this photo from 1997. […]

Tweet For my New Year’s Eve dinner with 15 friends at Balthazar last night, I got out a vintage Versace dress that I haven’t worn since I rang in the year 2008 at my combination New Year’s/40th birthday party. The dress is from a 1992 Versace collection. When I got it in 2007, I was […]

Tweet This photo was taken on Dec. 2, 2001, at friend’s wedding. My hair was so … precise! It reminds me slightly of designer Mary McFadden‘s signature ‘do.

Tweet MrB and I were invited to the Fresh Air Fund’s ’20s-themed fundraising dinner last night, so I got out the beaded ’20s-style vintage dress that I bought in 2007 and first wore in 2009. At the party, big fake pearl strands and feather boas were given out as favors, and I added those to […]

Tweet At one of my old corporate jobs, we wimmins got to talking about hair and I mentioned the super-aggressive cowlick lurking in my bangs. One of my employees then asked me what a cowlick was and why it was called that. I said, “It’s when your hair sticks up like a cow licked ya!” […]

Tweet I found a 1999 photo of the Tark 1 pants that I’ve worn a couple of times this summer. This was taken at the Delano Hotel in Miami, either right before or after a Ricky Martin concert. That was the year of Ricky’s #1 hit, “Livin’ la Vida Loca,” and he was a hot […]

Tweet I loved these singers’ hairstyles back in the day and I still love them. I guess I like heavy bangs! For your reading pleasure, here’s a story about the guy who did Joey Ramone’s hair.
