The bling didn’t stop there. At Area, hairstylist Jawara took the trend to a whole other level with crystal-mesh headpieces and face masks (shown here) that he placed over hair that had been slicked back into low ponytails with a tiny braid running down the center of the head. On a few models, he even wove strands of twinkly stones through Bantu knots and rows of tight braids — styles we really hope a celebrity or two tries out for the next big red-carpet event (wink, wink).
