Patrik Ervell | Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week | Fall/Winter 2014

Key Hair: Holli Smith for Oribe Hair Care; Umbrella Team: Kien Hoang, Nathan Nguyen

For Patrik Ervell's Spring/Summer 2014 runway show, lead hairstylist Holli Smith designed a look that can only be described as a new wave greaser. With a collection heavily inspired by water, Holli created a style reminiscent of choppy waves on a rough sea. "The clothes have this ocean vibe with lots of blues and sea-inspired prints, but it’s also very techy because of the fabrics,” she said. “It's an updated version of what people would wear boating today; it's very sporty and modern. We wanted to do something a little hard with an edge using gel so it looked wet. The look is a little bit '50s with the comb strokes that you can see in the hair. Every guy has a different haircut and face, so everybody is getting their own unique look." (
