The hair, by Jon Reyman, Aveda, for the Academy of Art University School of Fashion New York Fashion Week Show for Spring 2016 was cooked, wet-looking “dirty” hair. It felt stiff and sticky, swirled and mashed around the top of the head, the back left long. All had a wet look which was not wet, a Jon Reyman signature style. A wig cap was used to “cook” the hair with a flat set, more hair, fashions, shoes, click HERE

Innovative Re-Engineered Old School Waves – 2015

These innovative old school waves were “re-engineered” by Robert Grimes of RLG Salon in Texas. He created them with comb and fingers, working diagonally from crown to the hairline, waiting for each section to dry before going to the next section. He was a Finalist in 3 categories for The North American Hairdressing Awards in 2015 – NAHA – and won the prestige award of Hairstylist of the Year for this and (not shown) a veiled look all made of hair which took 3 weeks to get 2 square feet of usable netting, plus a braided process, which “took 10 hours of finger numbing work.”
