New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016

Oribe Hair Care was in the hands of dozens of hairdressers during the most recent New York Fashion Week, and our Oribe educators and network of stylists created an array of looks—from stunningly editorial to sweetly simplistic—to complement the designers’ Fall/Winter 2016 collections. Discover each show and style below.

NICOLE MILLER 
Hair by Tomo Jidai

Nicole Miller’s Fall 2016 collection draws inspiration from Nordic influences, from the topography and folklore of the region to knits and ceramics. The icy essence of the designs, balanced by a spirit of coziness and whimsy, is beautifully reflected by lead hairstylist Tomo Jidai’s simple, effortlessly Scandi-chic hair.

Get the Look:

  1. Start with damp-to-wet hair.
  2. Part the hair so that it falls naturally, then take the parting ear to ear and spritz Foundation Mist section by section. 
  3. Apply Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil from mid-lengths to ends.
  4. For thinner hair, apply Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse to add volume. 
  5. Finish by blow drying in sections and smoothing out with a brush.

 

ADAM LIPPES
Hair by Ramona Eschbach

Inspired by British building designers Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll who combined formal and informal to modernize English estates while keeping their authentic beauty intact, Adam Lippes’ Fall/Winter 2016 collection presents with silk jacquards, velvet burnouts, Japanese denim and metallic lames—all of which stand the true test of time. Lead stylist Ramona Eschbach creates a classic shape with a slightly imperfect finger wave style and encouraged texture to complement the timeless sophistication of the line.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist.
  2. Apply Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse on the roots and Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream on the ends. 
  3. Allow to air dry while using hands to encourage waves.
  4. Use a curling iron to define flat waves around the face. Spray each section with Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray.
  5. Set the remaining hair with a large curling iron and smooth into loose waves. Brush out and finish with Dry Texturizing Spray throughout.

 

JILL STUART
Hair by James Pecis

Inspired by the ’80s and female icons like Paloma Picasso and Tina Chow, Jill Stuart’s Fall 2016 collection embraces a moody but feminine opulence with textured fabrics in jewel-toned hues. Enhanced by rich embellishments, ruffles, and luxurious fabrics that are quintessential to Jill Stuart’s design DNA, the line is perfectly complemented by the edgy ’70s-goth waves created by lead hairstylist James Pecis.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Maximista Thickening Spray and blow dry straight. 
  2. Spray Dry Texturizing Spray over the top of the hair and brush through, making sure that the top is blown down flat. 
  3. Hold a large curling iron vertically to create an “S” shaped wave.

 

EDUN
Hair by James Pecis

Staying true to the brand heritage, EDUN’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection celebrated organic fabrics and artisanal craftsmanship. Inspired by Morocco, diversity and taking handmade artisanal items and incorporating them into fashion, lead hairstylist James Pecis created a beautifully textured ponytail that was light and airy to complement the collection. On some of the models he incorporated reworked buttons as hair accessories to reflect the theme of the show.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep the hair with The Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo and Essential Antidote Replenishing Conditioner to create a clean, soft base.
  2. Spray Maximista Thickening Spray section by section from roots to ends, focusing more on the mid-shaft to ends to start creating texture. 
  3. Create a soft center part. 
  4. Using a mid-sized iron, create natural looking waves, alternating directions towards the face and away from the face. Once you’ve completed the whole head, gently break up the waves with your hands. 
  5. Work Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse from mid-shaft to ends to create even more grit and lived-in texture. 
  6. Create a low ponytail and secure with an elastic the same shade as the hair. When in doubt, go a shade darker.

 

VERONICA BEARD
Hair by Kien Hoang

Presenting a fresh take on the bohemian gypsy, Veronica Beard’s Fall 2016 collection embraces a free-flowing, unstructured aesthetic with a light romantic ease. Lead hairstylist Kien Hoang explored a similar effortless femininity for the hair, creating a natural texture that is characterized by a light wave bend on the lengths and softly gathered at the nape of the neck.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist
  2. Apply Matte Waves Texture Lotion (launching April 2016) and use fingers to roughly blow dry and enhance the natural wave.
  3. Use a mid-size curling iron to fold the hair alternately through an iron to create soft bends. 
  4. Spray Dry Texturizing Spray at the base to add texture to the roots. 
  5. Rake AirStyle Flexible Finish Cream (launching April 2016) through the ends to enhance texture and add separation. 
  6. Finish by sewing a hemstitch with an elastic to direct hair together toward the nape.

 

BRANDON MAXWELL
Hair by James Pecis

Brandon Maxwell’s sophomore collection is a feminine and unapologetic love letter to the city of New York. Lead stylist James Pecis intensified the designer’s homage to the city’s greatness by drawing inspiration from the sexy uptown girl venturing downtown. To further strengthen the presentation of Maxwell’s art-deco-infused, modern take on power suiting and evening wear, each model walked down the runway with a unique hair look.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Maximista Thickening Spray and a dime-size amount of Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream
  2. Cornrow the hair back beginning one inch from the center part and finishing below the crown. 
  3. Apply Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse from mid-lengths to ends on hair that is not already braided and use a wide-tooth comb to scrape hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. 
  4. Use Dry Texturizing Spray and Rough Luxury Soft Molding Paste to create a super rough, smashed-in twist in the ponytail. 
  5. Finish with Superfine Hair Spray.

 

THE BLONDS
Hair by Kien Hoang

This season The Blonds Fall/Winter 2016 collection tells the story of twisted self-discovery through glamorous rose-tinted lenses in The Blonds Wonderland. Inspired by a Gregg Araki-Quentin Tarantino reinvention of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, lead stylist Kien Hoang creates an anarchic art piece that complements the showstopping line. Each ultra-high ballerina ponytail explodes with whipped strands and wild shades of pink.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with a combination of Foundation Mist and Maximista Thickening Spray.
  2. Pull hair into a high ponytail on top of the head and pull out random sections. 
  3. Apply Sculpting Cream to each section and use a Wind Spin Hair Dryer Curl Diffuser to twist and spin the sections into twisted knots. Hold the ends of the twist together with Original Pomade
  4. Wrap sections around the ponytail to create a messy bun that will serve as the anchor for the extension piece. 
  5. While each extension pieces are still individual, spray with Soft Dry Conditioner Spray and use the Wind Spin to spin and twist the extension. Apply Original Pomade to the ends as done previously to the natural hair. 
  6. Anchor each extension into the bun and expand each spiral to achieve a fuller twist. Begin to shape: The front pieces of the ponytail should drape over one eye with a few tendrils cascading while the rest should hang slightly off to the side. 
  7. Spray pink hair spray into the natural hair to create a seamless look with the extension pieces.
  8. Fashion the veil into the base of the ponytail using pins to secure. The veil should be tight on the sides to accentuate cheekbone structure. 
  9. Finish with Superfine Strong Hair Spray to set the style.
