Bristol
Hair by Christian Ceja-Compin


Up and coming brand, Bristol, showcased minimalistic designs set to muted colors. The designer’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection was an ode to his childhood and the comfort that clothes bring, especially when they inspire nostalgia.

Hair was shaped with clean side and middle parts and topped off with smooth waves.

Panama hats complemented the bold colors and tropical-patterned designs.

Private Policy
Hair by Kien Hoang


Genderless brand, Private Policy, reinvented the typical idea of ordinary American life in their Spring/Summer 2018 presentation titled “Trinkets.” The brand contrasted Native American patterns with fabrics that evoked feelings of old Hollywood glamour. Although men’s shows typically opt for shorter hairstyles, Oribe Educator Kien Hoang wanted to embrace long hair on men. To do so he created 13 custom long-haired wigs—in chocolate brown, bright tangerine and ashy blonde—each cut, razored and styled differently.

Life in Perfect Disorder
Hair by Nathan Nguyen


Life in Perfect Disorder designer, Benjamin Fainlight, kept his Spring/Summer 2018 collection close to home by using rugs from his parent’s house as props for his presentation. These rugs also served as inspiration for his deisgn's vintage, subdued color palette. Oribe Educator Nathan Nguyen complemented the cool clothes with an organic, lived-in look. He kept the looks matte, and enhanced the models’ natural hair texture by using Dry Texturizing Spray and Swept Up Volume Powder Spray.



Maiden Noir
Hair by Mandee Hernandez 


Maiden Noir designer, Nin Truong, pulled inspiration for his Spring/Summer 2018 collection from British artist, David Hockney’s work after he moved to the U.S. at the time of The Vietnam War protests. Nin’s designs showcase a contrast between bright, 1960s-style clothes and darker, military-inspired pieces.

For those models who donned utilitarian pieces, Mandee went with a more structured look.

The designs were inspired by “the masks we wear” every day when we put on clothes, and the set itself was adorned with masks that mimicked the patterns and colors present on the clothing.
