A year and a half ago, I had my hair cut really short – about an inch or so all around. At the time, I thought it was farewell to long hair. I am in my forties, and somewhere in the back of my mind was the notion that age thirty-five was the cutoff point ( no pun intended) for long hair. But I missed my hair, missed being able to braid it or ponytail it or just wind it around my finger in idle moments, and so I let it grow again, to the point where it’s now right back where it started, two or three inches below the collarbone. This made me feel like a backslider, until I learned, just recently, that there was an epidemic of long hair on the runways for the spring collections. Almost all the supermodels showed up with silky, shiny, pancake-flat hair down to the waist or lower, and the jet-set ingénues-who-count quickly followed suit.
Long hair, very long hair, much longer than mine, is suddenly de rigueur. How did this happen, and where does it leave me?
Everybody knows you can’t grow hair like that overnight. There was clearly been a big run on hair extensions, falls and other additives, so I decided to go to see Rodolfo Valentin, a leading designer of high-end hair extensions and hair pieces.
Rodolfo Valentin is six-three, Argentine-born, flamboyant, and no more burdened with modesty than his near-namesake, Rodolfo Valentino. His shoulder-length black hair goes awfully well with his black boots, black jeans. and black velvet shirt unbuttoned to the waist. ” I do plastic surgery with hair”,says Rodolfo, whose business had doubled in the last year. As we speak, he is attaching twelve-inch long strands of hair to a customer’s head with keratin protein, seven strands at a time, row on row.
Rodolfo Valentin sells to the biggest salons in Manhattan and he does royalty in Europe, movie stars in South America, he loves hair…” the day I die, I would like no flowers, just lots of hair, hair, hair”…Rodolfo makes ponytails that come in three lengths, from eight inches to two feet long. He makes clip-on bangs, falls that are attached to headbands, and “umbrellas” to add fullness. He uses only real hair, every hair going the same way, root to end, and he buys only the best. “Italian hair is supposed to be the top”, he tells me. Next to Italian, he likes hair from Spain. Sweden and the Nordic countries provide his blond hair. He doesn’t much like Asia hair, because it’s “too heavy, too thick individually, and very weak”, but hair from India is fine, “thin and strong”. Blond hair is more expensive than brown, of course, blond ponytails run from $ 800 and his brunettes from $ 600. I ask him about my hair- could it be longer? “Absolutely”. It will be a sophisticated look for you to have very long hair, but with a limit, probably not more than six inches longer. Six inches would come down below my breasts. Could I really do that?. “You have a young look, and your long hair is helping you”.Long hairstyles
