Master Runway Hair

You can have amazing runway esque hair with two simple products you already own- bobby pins & hairspray. Edward Tricomi, founder and co-owner of Warren-Tricomi salons, has been the mastermind behind numerous New York Fashion Week hair styles over the years, and this past week served as head stylist at the Joanna Mastroianni show where he was used the early 60s as his inspiration. Edward shares his tips for creating these simple styles at home.


1.       For this up-do, Edward brushed through the hair pulling it back into a high ponytail and securing with a bungee elastic.

2.       He then gently twisted the ponytail until it began to coil. Loosely pinning the hair into place as he went.

3.       Edward began then style as a bun wrapping the hair around the base of the ponytail and then moved off center to create a more interesting, abstract look.

4.       The hair was pinned into place and finished off with a layer of hairspray.

Expert Tip: Don’t have the length to create this style? Fake it! Models with shorter hair or less thickness wore hair pieces to add fullness.


1.       To create fullness and height, tease hair in sections with a Mason Pearson brush. Tease section by section to get the big hair effect. Spray each section with hairspray as you go.

2.       Push hair back and gently brush front pieces over the teased section. Add another layer of hairspray.

3.       Gather hair in the back and twist up and under the teased section to create the up-do. Secure with pins.


1.       Begin this topknot the same way as the style above. Pulling hair up into a high ponytail and securing with a bungee elastic.

2.       Again, gently twist the ponytail until it begins to coil. Wrap hair around the base of the ponytail again and again securing with pins.

3.       Twist the hair left at the end of the pony and wrap it around the entire bun, tucking it under in the back. Finish with hairspray.

These hair styles will not only look beautiful on you, the bride, but try some on your bridesmaids, your engagement party, rehearsal dinner, or just for fun! If you plan on wearing these though, we suggest practicing before leaving the house.
