This year’s TRIBEZA Style Week had an exciting new addition, the first ever Shear Style Hair Show. I hope they bring this event back next year, because the hair was FABULOUS.
The event was sponsored by NaturallyCurly.com, a website dedicated to textured hair, “empowering, embracing and connecting the world of curls, kinks and waves.”
Each salon presented several looks, and first up was Jose Luis Salon. Jose Luis is the official hair stylist of the big Fashion Show, the pinnacle of Style Week. Jose came up to the stage to speak about his looks; his salon played with hair texture, and boy, did they! There was crimping, curls, and lots of extensions. Jose Luis Salon had some of my favorite looks of the night.
Second on the stage was Jackson Ruiz Salon. These looks were softer and smoother, but still fairly sculptural. My favorite of the group was the woman on the right, below. I love a mock bob.
Ron King Salon was up next. Ron (below) spoke of representing “real women” in his presentation with vintage hair looks, including Veronica Lake-inspired hair. The models were playful and really worked the retro vibe.
Last was Propaganda Hair Group, a husband and wife team, which had the most interesting presentation of hair. Their first three looks were very editorial, slowly presented to a rocking Radiohead song from Hail to the Thief. Check out this nod to Princess Leia’s famous cinnamon rolls hair, here accomplished with basket-weave attachments. AMAZING.
After Propaganda’s first few extreme hair looks, they then presented more ready-to-wear hair, and I was obsessed with the big, bouncy curls on this model.
For next year’s Shear Style Hair Show, I’d love to see TRIBEZA select a venue where they can place a runway in the middle, so that you can see the hair in a more 360-view, rather than a stage placed in the front of a room. In any case, as a DIY-hair updo gal, I was completely inspired and thrilled with this new event.
