hanging out backstage...

Barshnikov Center, West 37th Street, NYC + Milk Made @ Standard Hotel, NYC

Dubbed "Twisted Elegance"---the Ed Tricomi hair creation= nicely complimented the polished looks of Douglas Hannant's S/S 2014 collection. 

The sleek straight locks-blow-dryed to perfection with a flat brush-  using a dime size amount of the workhorse Mythic Oil-

LOVE Mythic Oil (far left)----we douse our hair with the light liquid before a pool swim-swimcap covering it all up of course. Also a creamy milk version available-pictured on right.
With the front part (from middle of the eyebrows)  smoothly pulled back and secured with a clear rubber band... the entire head then got lightly sprayed with  L'Oréal Professionnel Infinium 2 hairspray. 

Next- small piece of hair from under the rubber band was twisted around and down the ponytail a few times...and invisibly secured with a bobby pin-pushed upwards to secure the twist from underneath. If necessary, a second pin was used before the whole 'do was sprayed with L’Oreal Professionnel Freezing Mist to keep the twist in place. 

Edward Tricomi -co-owner of Warren-Tricomi-shows his team.

Lastly-  L'Oréal Professionnel Perfect Shimmer spray added extra shine, and banished flyaways...along with a final flat iron smoothing out--- if necessary.
final look....

this stylist always wear great kicks---see below!

Another Warren-Tricomi Salon---set to open at 19th/5th. BTW the Plaza Hotel locale-is where we got our best haircut ever.

The rest-

BUSY Jody Formica-the star of the MakeUp Show in NYC---was lead artist here

desert tones----
Lara Mercier and Nars gave complections perfection

final look...

New to us-Morgan Taylor polish...a family company where the two daughters-Taylor Daniel and Morgan Haile-'offer-up' their names for the cause.

Harmony Polish

Later at the Standard Hotel-Ed Tricomi and his team-using L'Oreal Professionnel products and boatloads of hair extensions---created what we would call-editorial looks-for the kinda over-the-top presentation of Mordekai by Ken Borochov "extreme adornment" jewelry line. 

Wow...Twerk Princess-crossed with Masai Warrior-crossed with Lolita inspirations--and no surprise-titled the Chastity Collection-with all those face masks.

Bling-ornate--- there is serious workmanship going on here. Love the ear cuffs...and no wonder Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj are probably on speed-dial..
Though frankly we do not get the whole big deal about twerking. Ever been to a Grateful Dead concert-back in the day...or any jam band show? There ya go...massive real sense of rhythm required. IMO.

hashtags galore....

working till the last minute...
L'Oreal Professionnel products...

cannot do this at home----extensions were often glued on!

Ed Tricomi impressively gave long board straight locks to those was fun.

joking around-Ed Tricomi with a Rapunzel worthy extension

Neil Gogoi-make-up artist

backstage staple-Bioderma

cat's eye-ish for that Lion look

trying it on....

a makeup junkie's DREAM---MakeUp Forever used OFTEN

we thought she looked great! Hair ornament is ideal for a punched up topknot.
