Dickey of Hair Rules shares his opinion on weaves and wigs on the runway.
Some of my favorite runway styles are the kind that allow me unlimited styling options, particularly when collaborating with a designer and makeup artist. I believe in using a cohesive approach that utilizes the designer’s vision to think outside of the box and transcend ethnicity and texture.
The most creative approach to do this is using hair extensions, wigs and pieces, which come in an endless array of color and texture. Synthetic hair can be molded into any shape or form.Kanekalon, shown here is an easy way to take any texture and enhance it in minutes. Take either long or short, slick it and crown it into a ponytail. Then you attach the center of the kanekalon hair with bobby pins. The hair already comes with a band tied off in the center, so you can add as many packs as you like. I like to add six so you can cut off the excess into any length or shape.
