New York Fashion Week Fall 2008 – Backstage Hair at J. Mendel with Edward Tricomi

Edward Tricomi’s vision for J. Mendel’s fashion show was a play on a classic chignon-turned youthful and modern with its unique oval-braided shape.

To get the look, Edward simply double-parted hair, and pulled the sectioned off portion into a small ponytail, wrapping a thin strand around a tiny pony holder. Then, grabbed all the hair into a big ponytail holder and braided it.

The last step is to wrap the braid into an oval shaped chignon, securing with several hairpins. The Warren-Tricomi’s Flexible Hairspray was used to give hair a matte look minus the stiffness.
