Ooooo models backstage. Aren't they cute? Yes but wounded. The lad on the right was summarily rejected from the interactive hairstyling portion of the event and we all know it's because he's black. Can you believe it?
He's a hair stylist and he did this himself with an edger. Wait, a trimmer, you know, on an electric shaver. His friend helped him in the back and the other side of his face was a different pattern. Again, I'm loving efforts at inventive personal decoration as our tribal friends have been doing for millennia (see: Maori, New Guinea, Native Americans).
She was working the event for City Pages, a sponsor. It's got vintage flair but is of contemporary provenance: she just waited and waited for it to go on sale.
