You can create art on your hair, for the night, with temporary wash-out pastel color chalks, as Peter Gray have done here for the Nicopanda New York Fashion Week Presentation for Fall 2016, designed by Nicola Formichetti. The Pure pigment chalks came in pink, light blue, lime green, yellow, purple, orange, red and were used in different ways on various models, for her and him. Maki Ryoke’s eye for Nicopanda was strong, an exaggerated cat’s eye with black extending gracefully right into the hairline.

For the Naeem Khan Fall 2016 New York Fashion Week Show, Jon Reyman created hair crimping magic. First he sprayed on each section of hair, then crimped and 1/2″ curled opposite sections horizontally, brushed it out, then backcombed, shaped and pinned to style. The crimped hair, before it was brushed out, looked like something wonderful and could be a futuristic hair style all on it own. Or is it an 18th Century modern look?

Long hair was tucked into high collars at the fabulous Vera Wang New York Fashion Week Show for Fall 2016. “It’s about the idea of a smaller rounded look, not pinned or sleeked, but with the hair emerging from an elongated design silhouette,” explained Paul Hanlon for Pai-Shau. This is an old, very simple trick, used in many fashion shows and editorials over the years, done beautifully here; it is a great idea for those with long hair, not often used in everyday life.
