Joseph DiMaggio-Lead Hairstylist 
Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, NYC

words/backstage images Judith Ecochard

The Spring 2013 runway collection for hip label Timo Weiland (by Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein) was inspired by 80's iconic artist Keith Haring ---while rapper/actor Tupac Shakur served as a  guiding light for the men's hair.

For both the men and women. IMO that hip hop/street vibe got a very cool refresh---kinda upscale and trendy polished locks.

The lead stylist for L'Oreal Professionnel, Joseph DiMaggio---had the women's hair slicked back (using Mystic Oil Reinforcing Milk) ---and prepped with Volume Expand Volumizing Leave In Spray-with a textured top created by twisting the hair then pinning in patterns to mimic cornrows...finished with Infinium 3 Strong Hold Working Spray and---some shine at the ends via Perfect Shimmer Shine Illuminating Mist.

Editorial hair...that took a long time to get just right, btw...with all the twisting and zig-zag of hair pieces---the lower half-in ponytails with a piece wrapped around as a holder-crimped out!!!!!

BUT for everyday wear...a side part, hair twisted around, ending in a ponytail would get this inspiration.
hair twisted and pinned-overlapping criss-cross patterns...leading back is into a ponytail

The men got dramatic side parts, that mimiced shaved curves....then filled in with Nars Larger Than Life eye pencil. Very cool...

LOX extensions provided the length when needed-then crimped
