Braids, twists, and natural hair were a major trend for men on the Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo runways; and nowhere were these tough-to-execute-properly looks better done than backstage at the Discovered Fall 2017 show. Backstage before the big event the team from Shiseido Japan showed off their creativity, talent, and nimble fingers working hair of all textures into a wide array of shapes. To complete the model transformation to runway-ready the team then paired the look with clean skin and a shock of bright white mascara to give models a hyper cool, futuristic punk-meets-urban vibe that was one of the best looks (male or female) we saw this season.
