EDWARD TRICOMI! NEW YORK FASHION WEEK! SPRING HAIR UP-DO!

Meg hair! Warren-Tricomi haircare is as instrumental to fashion as 7th Avenue. Very few stylists can claim that Vogue Magazine helped launch their career but stylist Edward Tricomi is one of them.  I caught up with Tricomi backstage at Anne Bowen’s show and had the hair guru give us the skinny on what to expect for fall.

“I like the loose and goosey” Tricomi told me as he showed me the inverted braid that he created for the show. “It’s almost like a rooster feather, rooster feather’s are big this year. You could actually color this.” Don’t worry ladies, he was referring to a temporary, one evening color. Just enough to give the look some added pizazz, not enough to have your friends thinking you’ve lost your mind. Plus, we’ve already discussed in past posts, Megsmakeup.com is only a fan of faux rooster feathers.

The model’s were all lined up in chairs against the mirror’s as Tricomi’s team went to work pulling hair back, braiding and spraying. When I asked him what we needed to know to recreate the look at home Tricomi just smiled and told me “two rubber bands, hairspray and a little luck.”

The vibe is playful and easy to do. What I like about this style is it is pretty much fool-proof. There’s enough movement to allow for “creative interpretation” as opposed to the stuffy, no hair out of place, perfect chignon.

Oh, that hairspray bit? Well, we’ve been hearing it for years and yes, it is true. The Elnett Hairspray was out in full force. So there’s your inside product info!

Tips to recreate?

1. Edward Tricomi does not like to see rubber bands! If he doesn’t like to see them then we’re going to follow his wishes. Before you make your ponytail, leave out enough strands together to cover the band. Just wrap the hair around the elastic for a natural look, then pin.

2. Inverted a braid 4 pieces of hair taking every other one and mix it in. If you’re not “inverted braid” savvy, don’t worry, a normal braid works too.

3. Do the braid halfway through the middle of your hair and then wrap it with your elastic. Now, pin it to your scalp to create the height.

4. Spray it all over with hairspray and voila! You’re runway ready.

What do you ladies think of this messy up-do? Do you think I offended him with my “lobster tail” comment? I mean, it does kind of look like one, no? It’s easy and fun so it has that going for it. What do you think? Any inverted braids in your future?
