Oribe at NYFW: Men’s Day Fall/Winter 2018

The hard-working hands—and minds—behind Oribe Hair Care’s brilliant Education Team brought innovation and imagination to NYFW: Men's Day Fall/Winter 2018.


Bristol
Hair by Christian Ceja-Compin


Bristol’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection was inspired by the designer’s grandparents who emigrated from Japan to the United States post World War II. To depict this, Oribe Educator Christian Ceja-Compin paired short crops, matte texture and natural movement with the relaxed, muted street wear.

  1. Prep with Foundation Mist and Maximista Thickening Spray from root to ends.
  2. Power dry the products in at the root using fingers.
  3. Work Sculpting Cream in with fingers from root to ends to create texture, bend and movement.
  4. Pulsate Dry Texturizing Spray in at the root.
  5. Place butterfly clips to lay the hair flat and eliminate volume.
  6. Diffuse and finish with Thick Dry Finishing Spray to mold texture.

     

Head of State

Diplomacy
Hair by Davide Marinelli
