KAELEN | New York Fashion Week | Spring/Summer 2015

Lead Hair Stylist: Amy Friadd for Kate Ryan Inc.

For Kaelen’s tropical-inspired Spring/Summer 2015 collection, hairstylist Amy Farid created a clean and innocent look from the ‘70s with a nod to hair icon Marcia Brady. “We wanted that freshly washed, really brushed hair,” explained Farid. “Like how Marcia Brady would brush her hair 100 times before bed.” Farid also made sure to keep the models’ hair tucked behind their ears. Before the presentation, the hair framing the model’s face would show off a natural bend around the cheekbone. Some models also wore a hair clip with fresh orchids on it.

Get the Look:
1. Create a center part and prep the hair with Foundation Mist. Layer on Volumista Mist for Volume and blow-dry the hair with a round brush, creating natural volume at the root. “Depending on the hair’s texture, we would add Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray and Supershine Moisturizing Cream,” noted Farid.
2. Tuck the hair behind the ears, so that over time the hair gets a natural bend around the cheekbone.
3. Brush the hair with a Mason Pearson brush for a super shiny look.

Hair by Kien Hoang 
 

This season menswear designer David Hart took us to Palm Springs with his Spring/Summer 2015 collection. “The inspiration behind the prints is the natural landscape of Palm Springs,” said David. To compliment the colorful tailored clothes, lead hairstylist Kien Hoang created a relaxed yet polished look with lots of shine for the models. “When creating the hair, I imagined European guys on vacation,” said Kien. “They’re super stylish and I wanted the hair to reflect that, but it’s not overly done. It’s also relaxed and easy and quintessentially California.” 

Get the Look:
1. the hair with Foundation Mist, which will serve as a cutting lotion. Clean up the hairline and trim sideburns into a square shape.
2. Apply Gel Sérum and shape the hair with your hands, encouraging natural wave and movement.
3. Blow-dry the hair away from the face. Apply Curl Gloss to enhance natural waves.
4. Finish the look with a generous mist of Shine Light Reflecting Spray for added luster.

David Hart NYC Spring/Summer 2015 collection is inspired by Palm Springs and the idea of desert modernity - minimal lines and dusty colors."

Theory Creative Director Olivier Theyskens is always designing for the modern woman, and his Fall/Winter 2014 collection wasn't short on immaculate designs in the minimal chic style we've come to know and love from this brand. With the clothes being so precise and clean, lead hairstylist for Oribe Hair Care Paul Hanlon wanted to make sure the hair wouldn't follow a similar neat style. "The clothes are so precise and tailored that we didn't want the hair to be too perfect otherwise it wouldn't feel realistic for this woman," Paul said. Using the French actress/singer Charlotte Gainsbourg as a reference, Paul sought to add a cool Parisian girl vibe to the hair, which resulted in a tousled style of lived-in hair with a low left-side part. "She's definitely very bold and has a little bit of an attitude," Paul said of this season's Theory girl. "She's a little unkempt. She's not the kind of girl who carries around a brush." The look was enhanced further by a few strands of hair coming across the forehead to create a windswept effect. "It gives you the feeling she's walked from the street straight into the show." (Oribe.com)
