Overview

John Vial's avant-garde dressing tutorial begins with clean and conditioned hair in a semi damp state to allow more control of the hair and its volume. A wig stocking is placed over the hair from the front back to keep the hair in place and flat. A laced lined natural hair wig is placed and John weaves the hair in a figure of eight around a U pin.

The hair is brushed out to create a frizzy texture maintaining a degree of control and form, then finished with a beveled one length line to form a strident editorial image maker featuring a balance of geometry against the translucent texture.
