Oribe at New York Men’s Day Fall/Winter 2016

Our Oribe educators and brilliant network of stylists crafted the hair looks for all 12 designers showcasing their Fall/Winter 2016 collections at Industria Superstudios in the heart of Manhattan’s Meatpacking District.

CHAPTER
Hair by Christian Ceja-Compin

Inspired by the city of Los Angeles, Chapter’s Fall/Winter collection explored the theme of confidence, intention and self-discovery when on a path lined with distractions. Taking point from the likes of Vincent Gallo and Johnny Depp, lead hairstylist Christian Ceja-Compin created slicked-back, lived-in hair to give a gritty edge to the detailed looks.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray from mid lengths to ends.
  2. Apply a small amount of Sculpting Cream to lock in the slick texture.
  3. Loosen strands and finish with Smooth Style Serum.

 

CWST
Hair by Dan Nguyen

CWST designer Joe Sadler journeyed to the San Juan Islands in Northwest Washington and translated the rough, darker elements of the area into his Fall/Winter 2016 collection. With a vision to reflect the same mood, lead hairstylist Dan Nguyen leaned on the grunge influence of Seattle to create a naturally weighed-down texture.

Get the Look:

  1. Start with Foundation Mist, spraying section by section throughout the hair from roots to ends.
  2. Beginning three inches from the scalp, work in Sculpting Cream.
  3. Apply Supershine Moisturizing Cream from mid-lengths to ends to give the hair sheen and a weighed-down look.
  4. Twist and lightly clip the hair to lend natural movement. Allow hair to set and gently diffuse.
  5. Finish by lightly misting hair with Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray.

 

DAVID HART
Hair by Kien Hoang

David Hart’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection takes a trip back to the rhythm and blues influences of the late ’50s and early ’60s. Inspired by an era of natural textures and short crops, lead hairstylist Kien Hoang maintained a healthy, clean look for the hair, which he enhanced with a luminous glow.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist.
  2. Identify the shape of the hairline and tailor the edges, using clippers to gently fade out the neckline and sides.
  3. Finish with an application of Côte d’Azur Luminous Hair & Body Oil to give the hair and scalp a healthy glow.

 

EDMUND OOI
Hair by Joey George

Edmund Ooi’s forward-thinking sensibility was prevalent in his Fall/Winter 2016 collection, which depicted the graduating class of 2525. To complement the futuristic feel of the luxe fabrics and graphic pieces, lead hairstylist Joey George turned to David Bowie for inspiration. Slicked-back styles, square hairlines, and outlandish touches abounded.

Get the Look:

  1. Saturate hair with Maximista Thickening Spray. Blow dry away from the face while simultaneously gathering hair at the nape of the neck.
  2. Flatiron section by section so the hair appears compact and smooth.
  3. Apply Rock Hard Gel section by section to give hair a fluid, shiny look.

 

EPONYMVS / HVRMINN
Hair by Louis Orozco

Known for its signature dapper aesthetic, the EPONYMVS line by HVRMINN did not disappoint with a Fall/Winter 2016 presentation full of dashing suits with crisp, sophisticated tailoring. Staying true to the military-inspired roots of the collection, lead hairstylist Louis Orozco created slicked-back, clean-cut hair ideal for the refined gentleman.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Maximista Thickening Spray to add thickness to the base.
  2. Evenly apply Rock Hard Gel throughout the hair for a firm hold.
  3. Using a fine-tooth comb, tighten hair on the sides of the head. For the top, use a wide-tooth comb to create defined ridges.
  4. Finish with an all-over mist of Superfine Strong Hair Spray, and blow dry to stiffen the look.

 

GARCIAVELEZ
Hair by Christian Ceja-Compin

Inspired by the sensorial experience of thermal baths in the Swiss Alps, the Fall/Winter 2016 collection unveiled by GARCIAVELEZ was a sartorial interpretation of relaxation, wellness and nomadic journeys. The architecturally driven vision was complemented by an urban streetwear look by lead hairstylist Christian Ceja-Compin, who explored defined parts, texture and piecey finishes.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist.
  2. Spray Maximista Thickening Spray to open up the part at the hairline and create soft texture and separation.
  3. Follow with AirStyle Flexible Finish Cream (launching April 2016) to create a chunky, piecey texture.
  4. Finish with either Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray or Dry Texturizing Spray to add lift in certain sections.

 

KRAMMER & STOUDT
Hair by Louis Orozco

Krammer & Stoudt’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection featured an eclectic mix of influences from punk rock to California cool to Western. The hairstyles created by lead stylist Louis Orozco were similarly versatile—the mussed-up hair of a boxer in ice-cold weather meets a rugged ’50s fellow with a tousled pompadour.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Gel Sérum from roots to mid shaft.
  2. Spritz Maximista Thickening Spray over the Gel Sérum to give a unique texture.
  3. Add Dry Texturizing Spray to create grit and expansion. Leave the ends clean for now.
  4. Blow dry the root to expand the texture. Once dry, lightly mist Dry Texturizing Spray on the ends to mattify. Superfine Hair Spray can also be added in alternate spots to give an unexpected combination of textures.

 

LUCIO CASTRO
Hair by Kien Hoang

Lucio Castro’s Fall/Winter 2016 ‘Stonehenge’ collection celebrated the spirit of travel and ’90s-inspired wanderlust. Lead hairstylist Kien Hoang translated the earthy vibe of the presentation into his hairstyles with individualized looks for each model. The recurring theme was matte-finish hair that fell forward in an effortless effect as well as choppy, imperfect fringes to deliver a devil-may-care attitude.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist.
  2. Touch up and trim little pieces to open up areas that most enhance the face.
  3. Alternate the application of Smooth Style Serum and Matte Waves (launching April 2016) to give hair extra bend and matte texture.
  4. Finish with a mist of Dry Texturizing Spray for movement.

 

MATIERE
Hair by Joey George

Exploring the theme of modern migration, the Matiere Fall/Winter 2016 collection featured a blend of cultural influences from the Edgelands of England to the cityscapes of New York. The designs called for polished, well-groomed hair, and the looks created by lead hairstylist Joey George delivered a perfectly preppy outcome.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist.
  2. Comb hair into a side part using the arch of the brow as a reference point.
  3. Saturate hair with Maximista Thickening Spray for fine hair or Sculpting Cream for thick hair.
  4. Blow dry towards the direction of the side part. Once dry, finish with Superfine Strong Hair Spray.

 

MAX N’ CHESTER
Hair by Dan Nguyen

The Fall/Winter 2016 collection by Max ‘n Chester, inspired by the sophistication of 1920s pre-war Italy, was characterized by a signature comfortable-meets-polished aesthetic. Lead hairstylist Dan Nguyen created a similar feel for the hair with natural, elegant touches to complement the monochromatic look.

Get the Look:

  1. Mist lightly with Foundation Mist.
  2. Part hair to the side.
  3. Apply Sculpting Cream to amp up the hair and add lift.
  4. Finish off the look with AirStyle Flexible Finish Cream (launching April 2016) for a light, natural effect on the ends.

 

PLAC
Hair by Nathan Nguyen

Inspired by streetwear and the urban culture that accompanies it, PLAC’s collection was seamlessly complemented by lead hairstylist Nathan Nguyen’s wet/dry looks. The style, which is a play on the everyday urban vibe, sought direction from the idea of boys coming in from the rain—the hair dry in some places and damp in others.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Maximista Thickening Spray and pre dry (blot hair with a towel and allow to air dry for as long as possible).
  2. Apply Matte Waves (launching April 2016) for texture.
  3. Lightly mist hair with Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray and diffuse. Once dry, spray with Maximista Thickening Spray in random spots to create uneven dampness.

 

ROBERT JAMES
Hair by Nathan Nguyen

A nod to the liberal rock era of the ’70s, Robert James’ Fall/Winter 2016 collection included a blend of sophisticated yet relaxed looks in classic silhouettes and tailoring. For hair that needed to be strikingly masculine with a softening modern twist, lead hairstylist Nathan Nguyen created a “modern man in the ’70s” look.

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist.
  2. Sculpt and add shine with a dime-sized amount of Gel Sérum.
  3. Spritz with Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray, and blow out with a round brush to soften and smooth the ends.
