Long Lasting Hair Crimps – 2012-2016

Backstage @ New York Fashion Weeks. Collage by heleoppenheim.com

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.
Top Row Left to Right: Edward Tricomi  teasing and crimping for a high life at Douglas Hannant 2012 … Tricomi’s finished High Life with strategic crimps here and there … Crimped human hair extension by Sherri Jessee, Intercoiffure 2013 … Jessee’s finished half up/half down Wild West style which is micro-crimped with the extensions added.

Orb Earrings @ Linder NYFW – 2018

Orb Earrings @ Linder NYFW – 2018

Photos: Helen Oppenheim

The hair by Peter Gray at the Linder New York Fashion Week Fall 2018 show which took place at St. Mark’s Church was sleek, slicked back off the face, which glowed with not a scrap of make up, the models having had an Intelligent Nutrients facial treatment before the show. I suspect the designer, Sam Linder, wanted to show of his unique earrings, some of which dangled uniquely at the end of a gold headband, not attached to the ears at all, as the photo to the right. Most had celestial-like orbs in the spirit of Artemis, known as the goddess of the moon, the hunt, wild animals, birth. Orbs also glowed uniquely on body jewelry.

Peter Gray’s hair at the Badgley Mischka New York Fashion Week Show for Spring 2018 interpreted a playful textured take on the ’50s/’60s bouffant – with a modern naughty knot on the nape. Pull hair back over ears and tie a double knot or, if the hair is shorter, tie one knot.  Leave ends loose and tousled. For a full how-to, fashions, earrings and more versions, CLICK HERE
