  • <b><i>Get the Look:</b><br />
1. Create a strong middle part in dry hair, then apply <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/2226/grandiose/' target='_parent'>Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse</a> and blow-dry it into the hair.<br />
2. Spray <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/73/volumista-mist-for-volume/' target='_parent'>Volumista Mist for Volume</a> into the lengths of the hair for some texture, and lightly tease the hair. Run a flat-iron over the lightly teased hair to enhance the texture and create flyaways.<br />
3. Pull hair back into a low ponytail and secure with a band, leaving some hair soft and loose in the front. Wrap a section of hair around the band and tie it in a knot with another section of hair to create the illusion of a second ponytail coming out of the first.<br />
4. Spray <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/2229/thick-small-dry-finishing-spray-small/' target='_parent'>Thick Dry Finishing Spray</a> into the ponytails to add depth.</i><br />

  • <b><i>Chromat</b><br />
Hair by Amy Farid<br />
<br />
For Chromat’s Fall 2015 runway show, key hairstylist Amy Farid wanted something graphic to complement Becca McCharen’s designs, which were made of synthetic materials like latex and TPU (a synthetic plastic). The main look, a high and tight ponytail, was achieved with generous amounts of <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/70/superfine-hair-spray/' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a> and <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/1884/shine-spray/' target='_parent'>Shine Light Reflecting Spray</a> . “I wanted to add height and drama to the collection with the hair, making it look wet, slick and shiny,” explained Farid. “I also incorporated latex from the collection into the look by wrapping it around the high ponytails.”</i><br />

1. Prep dry hair with <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/50/foundation-mist/' target='_parent'>Foundation Mist</a> and <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/55/maximista/' target='_parent'>Maximista Thickening Spray</a>.<br />
2. Blow-dry the hair straight with a Mason Pearson brush, directing the hair backwards.<br />
3. Use generous amount of <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/70/superfine-hair-spray/' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a> and brush hair back into a very high ponytail. It’s helpful to tilt the head all the way back to get the necessary height. Secure with a bungee. Use a fine-tooth comb and more <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/70/superfine-hair-spray/' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a> to get rid of any bumps and achieve a slick and smooth look.<br />
4. Apply <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/1784/supershine-light-moisturizing-cream/' target='_parent'>Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream</a> on the ponytail and create a thick rope braid. Mist the braid with <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/70/superfine-hair-spray/' target='_parent'>Superfine Hair Spray</a> and secure the end with an elastic, leaving about an inch of hair left at the end.<br />
5. Wrap latex around the rope braid. Finish the look with a lot of <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/1884/shine-spray/' target='_parent'>Shine Light Reflecting Spray</a> for a shiny, almost wet, appearance.</i><br />

  • <b><i>Veronica Beard</b><br />
Hair by Kien Hoang<br />
<br />
For Fall 2015, the designers behind Veronica Beard created tailored separates, dresses and outerwear inspired by the outdoors and the great camps of the Adirondacks. To complement their collection, hairstylist Kien Hoang created the perfect look for those who look forward to campfires and hikes in the fall. “We wanted to make a certain texture that was as if you were river rafting and your hair is in a low ponytail,” explained Hoang. “You would be left with a lived-in style that was soft and natural.”</i>
  • <b><i>Get the Look:</b><br />
1. Prep the hair with <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/50/foundation-mist/' target='_parent'>Foundation Mist</a> and apply <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/26/dry-texturizing-spray/' target='_parent'>Dry Texturizing Spray</a> all throughout the hair.<br />
2. Create a deep side part, then fold sections of the hair like an accordion and secure with an elastic, leaving the ends out. This will create a loosely crimped texture. Let the hair set with more <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/26/dry-texturizing-spray/' target='_parent'>Dry Texturizing Spray</a>.<br />
3. Use a flatiron and <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/1473/apres-beach/' target='_parent'>Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray</a> on the ends of the hair. You’ll be left with matte finish on the lengths of the hair and shiny ends.<br />
4. Take out the elastics and tie the hair back into a low ponytail. Let pieces of the hair frame the face. Use <a href='http://www.oribe.com/index.php/products/view/1946/rough-luxury-soft/' target='_parent'>Rough Luxury Soft Molding Paste</a> to polish the hairline.</i>
