<b>Educator:</b> Adam Livermore<br />
<br />
<b>The style:</b> Textured chignon. You can customize the style to be more sleek, rough or even a little wet looking. <br />
<br />
<b>Why it works for this trend:</b> It takes a sleepwear-inspired look into a more glamorous direction. <br />
<br />
<b>Get the look: </b><br />
1. Take a golf ball-size amount of <a href='/index.php/products/view/2228' target='_parent'>Surfcomber</a> and rake through dry hair with hands. Use <a href='/index.php/products/view/51' target='_parent'>Gel Sérum</a> in place of <a href='/index.php/products/view/2228' target='_parent'>Surfcomber</a> if you want a wet look.<br />
2. Gather hair at the back of the head and tie into a ponytail. <br />
3. Twist ponytail into a chignon and secure with bobby pins. Pull pieces from the chignon for a roughed-up, straight-from-the-bedroom look.
  • <b>Pretty in Punk:</b> On the heels of the Metropolitan Museum's latest costume exhibit, the punk trend has returned for a new generation of rebels. Fendi, Rodarte, Givenchy and Saint Laurent Paris offered a modern interpretation of the look. <br />

  • <b>Pretty in Punk</b><br />
<br />
<b>Educator:</b> Adam Livermore<br />
<br />
<b>The style:</b> Stick-straight hair with a low part and one side pulled back<br />
<br />
<b>Why it works for this trend:</b> It’s tough and artistic but still wearable. The punk look is about accessories, too, so you can adapt this style by putting a bunch of bobby pins on the pulled back side.<br />
<br />
<b>Get the look:</b><br />
1. Blow out hair using <a href='/index.php/products/view/2229' target='_parent'>Thick</a>. You could also use <a href='/index.php/products/view/2226' target='_parent'>Grandiose</a> for a cool starchy texture. <br />
2. Part hair to one side at your temple and comb back. Use your fingers to lightly smooth on <a href='/index.php/products/view/1946' target='_parent'>Rough Luxury Soft</a> to tame flyaways. <br />
3. Bring one side of hair back to the nape of the neck and tie into a small ponytail. Let hair in the back hang over ponytail to hide it. Accessorize with lots of black bobby pins if you’d like.
  • <b>Borrowed from the Boys:</b> Take a few style notes from the man in your life and reach for tailored suits, heavy wool coats and menswear fabrics straight from Savile Row. Follow the lead of designers like Haider Ackermann, Rag & Bone and <a href='/index.php/explore/post/2470/' target='_parent'>Band of Outsiders</a>.  <br />

<b>The style:</b> Deconstructed bun with a smooth texture and volume at the crown<br />
<br />
<b>Why it works for this trend:</b> Like the clothing, it's tailored yet has a feminine flare and softness with the deconstruction of the bun.<br />
<br />
<b>Get the look: </b><br />
1. Blow out with <a href='/index.php/products/view/50' target='_parent'>Foundation Mist</a>, <a href='/index.php/products/view/2226' target='_parent'>Grandiose</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/2229' target='_parent'>Thick</a> from roots to ends. Once dry, add more <a href='/index.php/products/view/2229' target='_parent'>Thick</a> for texture.<br />
2. Use a curling iron with <a href='/index.php/products/view/68' target='_parent'>Soft Lacquer</a> to create bend from mid-shaft to ends. <br />
3. Fashion a center or side part, depending on preference, then section out the top of the hair and use <a href='/index.php/products/view/26' target='_parent'>Dry</a> at the crown to tease. <br />
4. Pull all hair to the back center of the head into a bun just above the nape. Pin the bun in a way where it is loose and has texture. Nothing perfect!
  • <b>Feminine Frock:</b> The <b>new</b> new look; designers like Miuccia Prada, Oscar de la Renta and Raf Simons of Dior were inspired by the nipped waists and full skirts of the mid-century, but updated for the modern woman. <br />

<b>Educator:</b> Ashley Brecken<br />
<br />
<b>The style:</b> Classic waves with a modern twist<br />
<br />
<b>Why it works for this trend:</b> With looks that have more of a classic feel to them, you can't go wrong incorporating a bit of glamour and style into your hair with a modern twist to go with the times. Having the classic finger wave style with an over directed side-swept part gives you timeless elegance and face-framing beauty for fall. <br />
<br />
<b>Get the look:</b><br />
1. Prep the hair with <a href='/index.php/products/view/72' target='_parent'>Supershine</a>, concentrating on the mid-shafts, ends and hairline. <br />
2. Apply <a href='/index.php/products/view/48' target='_parent'>Crème for Style</a> in 1-inch sections from roots to ends. If you want to create more volume, apply <a href='/index.php/products/view/2226' target='_parent'>Grandiose</a> at the root area. <br />
3. Blow out hair using a medium boar bristle brush. Once dry, set the hair using <a href='/index.php/products/view/68' target='_parent'>Soft Lacquer</a>, alternating a pin curl set in 2-inch sections. <br />
4. Once hair has set, gently brush out into a soft finger wave. <br />
5. Take the hair from the left-hand side that is in front of the ear and bring around the head while twisting in towards the back. Secure below the left ear using a large bobby pin, pinning from the bottom of the twist up into the style.

Fall Style Guide

With summer swiftly drawing to a close, we can’t help but delight in the possibilities a new season brings. To get us ready for autumn, we asked celebrity fashion stylist Elle Werlin and members of the Oribe Education Team for expert advice on transitioning into fall with great style. Read the tips below from Elle and Oribe Artistic Director Ronnie Stam, then scroll through the slideshow to see some of Elle’s favorite emerging trends from the fall runways accompanied by complementary hairstyles courtesy of our educators.

What are the newest fashion trends we should expect to see this fall?


Elle: In terms of overall trends, I’m seeing a lot of print-on-print, menswear-inspired looks for ladies, punk styles and ‘90s luxury for today’s hipster. Main elements include modern fur textures like pony skin, broadtail fur and astrakhan wool textures, as well as shearling and fleece-like fur that isn’t as bulky, giving way to modernity. The ‘90s are also showcased through sleepwear and lingerie-like slips that are worn everywhere except bed. Women are completing a strong outerwear look with bomber jackets and widely cut or floor length coats with a menswear feel. Sweatshirt detailing is also huge.

As far as accessories go, I’m seeing big bags, portfolio clutches and purses with handles as opposed to straps. Shoes are chunkier with stacked heels. I’m often seeing boyfriend shoes like loafers and thigh-high boots, followed by mod and flat styles.

What’s the hottest hue of the season?


Elle: The hottest hues going forward will be hunter or dark green, many shades of grey and navy.

How can people transition their summer clothes into fall?


Elle: The best way to transition summer clothes into fall is through layering. Pile on springtime knits, mixing them with leather and other fabrics like denim to get a warm, fall-like feel.

Do you have a go-to fall outfit?


Elle: Leather pants, a cropped knit sweater and boyfriend shoes.

What are some must-have staple items that never go out of style?


Elle: The little black dress, a pointed heel and a great evening clutch.

What kind of outfit and hairstyle would you recommend for someone going straight from work to a social event?


Elle: The ability to take your wardrobe from work to play is a skill that only a true lady can master. My fail-safe favorite is the fitted sheath dress, which every woman should have in her wardrobe. For day, pair it with flats, pumps or even lace-up brogues and a large day bag, tote or briefcase. Keep hair, makeup and jewelry to a minimum. For evening, exchange any flat shoes for heels, platforms or strappy open-toed sandals. Then pull out a clutch that was previously packed into the daytime tote. To complete the look, bring some accent or statement jewelry to complement hair, makeup, shoes and bag.

If a fitted sheath isn’t a great look for you, try a pencil skirt or fitted pants with a light cotton button-up shirt under a blazer or cardigan. At night, exchange the button-up for a loose silky blouse, cutout top or sexy racerback tank top. Bright colors, prints and other embellishments can easily take the pants or skirt from day to night. Just keep in mind who your nighttime audience is and adjust the look appropriately.

Ronnie: It depends on what the temperature is, since obviously summertime lends itself better to off-the-neck styling, but I like the idea of something that can easily be changed. When you’re feeling the need for a boost around your temples, use Dry Texturizing Spray on the roots for extra lift. Or, try a slicked-back look by wetting your hairline with Foundation Mist, applying Rock Hard Gel to roots and combing hair back for a very sculpted look. Leave the ends down without product, put on a headband—something skinny and small—and add statement earrings.

With August winding down, the Labor Day party planning has begun. Do you have any thoughts about Labor Day outfit options that balance all-day comfort with style?


Elle: For an outdoor barbeque or picnic, pair a long, light and airy circle skirt with something as simple as a cutoff tee to hint at that tan you’ve been working on all summer. Stick to flip-flops, flat sandals or lace-ups since the key is to be comfortable. Since it’s a picnic, you should be prepared to get dirty, tipsy and potentially wet if you’re near the beach or pool. Wear a bikini under everything else!

Ronnie: I love doing something with scarves, especially for outdoor events. Apply Crème for Style to damp hair and do a pin curl set. Once hair is dry, gently loosen the curls with fingers and finish hair with Shine Light Reflecting Spray. Then, wrap a scarf that matches your outfit around your hair to act as a headband or elastic.

What about fall weddings?


Elle: For a fall wedding—both day and night—remember that this is the bride’s day, and you don’t want to look like you came from a club in front of someone else’s (or your own) grandparents. For daytime, a silky knee-length dress always looks great. Some people take seasonal colors into consideration. Again, depending on wedding attire—which is generally specified in the invitation—a sheath is an excellent option since it’s form fitting and flattering without being too revealing.

Ronnie: Simplicity is important, particularly in the fall, though sometimes you’ll want to think about changing the look depending on how long the wedding is. My first tip is to go light on the hairspray. That way you can create a different look later on without worrying about product resistance. Imperméable is light, but holds the hair and will maintain shine. If you’ve got an updo during the day, let it down at night. To finish the look, add a few drops of Gold Lust for shine and Fiber Groom to seal the ends.
