Loose piece-y textured hair by Peter Gray at the fab Badgley Mischka Fall 2015 New York Fashion Week Show. So beautiful. Hair not perfectly in place but with a gorgeous and modern finish, without looking messy. Two ornate gilded roses, in different colors, were added to nestle at the back of the glam styles.

 Romantic Dreamy Hair – 2013

Romantic hair inspired by fairies, woodland nymphs and the haunting beauty of Max Reinhardt’s 1935 film “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” was the theme for Peter Gray’s hair for the Badgley Mischka Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week show.

The ribbon-like hair floated angelically, some accented with a tiny flower or two nestling here and there. Small random crimps gave an airy effect and added to the magic. A braided shelf acted as a base for the complicated carefully conceived dreamy hair, lovely for beautiful brides. For more romance and how-to’s, click HERE:

Curls Like Fluffy Clouds, Peter Gray – 2012

Time for curly curls again. Love them. And time for some hairstyles on the NY Fashion Week runways that work to photograph, front view.  Please. These, by Peter Gray for the gorgeous Badgely Mischka’s NY Fashion Week Fall 2012 show, were inspired by the 1927 German Expressionist cult film “Metropolis” directed by Fritz Lang.

Everyone can be inspired by this fluffy curly cloud look with a big, soft, multi-dimensional shape and random curls loosely pulled then backcombed in unexpected places with a deep wave at the front blended into the fluffy texture.   Click here for more versions and, if you don’t have naturally curly hair, detailed how to’s:

Peter Gray’s low swept bangs with a deep diagonal part and strands tied at the back for Badgley Mischka’s Fall 2014 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Show were sometimes worn with lovely lazy loose waves at the back and were all about polished texture with a modern edge that translated seamlessly from day into evening.  For his signature trick, a tutorial, some of the fashions for this show, click here:    And check out his original idea for this show at the end (not used!)
