I have a feeling for tweeds this Fall. And a tweed with ruffles is even hotter. This great look, shown with embellished glasses and large pearls, is by Greedilous, designed by Youn-hee-Park, (0ne of three Korean brands presented) –  all photographed backstage at the Concept Korea New York Fashion Week show for Fall 2017. The wet waves were by Jon Reyman, makeup by Janell Geason, both for Aveda. The full page on the left is from my July 2017 column in Peluquerias Magazine.

I have always loved the feeling of this dreamy ’20s-inspired Geisha Bride from the Elisa Palomino New York Fashion Week Show in 2011. Yes, the hair by Jon Reyman for Aveda is somewhat big, and exaggerated, as is the large squashy flower with feathers, but the fashions, the model, the photograph, the bride are all fabulous divine wonderful, don’t you think?

Keeping Warm With Nicholas K – 2014

Repost.  Brrr. It’s cold outside.  This fab fur hood was one of many great fashions for harsh, winter weather shown at the Nicholas K Fall/Winter 2014 New York Fashion Week Show.  It’s a winner, as were more fashions at this show, by the siblings, Nicholas and Christopher Kunz.

All the hair, um, wigs, were by Jon Reyman for Aveda and had a strong asymmetric geometric look with a hair fringe going up over one eyebrow. More from this great show, click:

Hair Crimping Magic, NYFW Fall - 2016

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? For more great hair and how-to’s from this dazzling show, click HERE

Cooked Wet-Looking Mashed Hair – 2016

Photo: © Helen Oppenheim

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
