Long Lasting Hair Crimps – 2012-2016

Crimps in the hair are long lasting. They last longer than curls and waves ironed or set in. Crimps are also fun stuff. Hairdressers love doing them. And they do so for many fashion shows, as seen here photographed backstage at New York Fashion Week Shows from 2012 – 2016. Why more mere mortals and celebs don’t  wear them much is something to think about.

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?
