Oribe at NYFW: Men’s Fall/Winter 2017

Oribe's talented team snipped, shaped, sculpted and sprayed their way to 13 superb styles—complete with textured afros and perfect middle parts—this Fall/Winter 2017 NYFW: Men's season.

Uri Minkoff

Hair by Adam Livermore 

Inspired by young entrepreneurs such as Jack Dorsey and Kevin Systrom, Uri Minkoff’s collection is urban commuter chic. All black ensembles accessorized with traveling necessities such as duffle bags, backpacks, and even a bicycle, Minkoff’s muse is the young tech mogul on his way to a board meeting; comfortable and versatile for different events, but always fashion forward. Oribe Hair Care's Adam Livermore created a forward, slightly flattened style for these guys on the go. 

Get the Look:

  1. Prep hair with Foundation Mist to dampen, control frizz and give the hair a supple feel. 
  2. Mix two to three pumps of Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil with a smudge of Rough Luxury Soft Molding Paste in hands. 
  3. Once the products are fully emulsified, run fingers through the hair from back to front, pushing the hair slightly from one side to the other until the product is distributed throughout. Smooth the hair and bangs down to one side. Keep it loose, fingers only, no comb needed.
