Stelios Chondros’ dressing tutorial demonstrates  a modern tong technique and rope braid with accessories. Stelios provides pointers on sectioning and direction of tong, braiding with ribbon, net positioning and team coordination for a busy editorial environment.

The final result is an uncomplicated and swift technique to create movement, then an understated supplement of ribbon and a band worked into a modern day braid, with a hint of voguish subculture.
