Two quintessential New York City brands came together for one of NY FashionWeek’s most creative shows. Saku New York, a contemporary high fashion womenswear brand with showrooms in the East Village, challenged ARROJO NYC, the modern creative hairdressing brand with three salons in downtown NYC, to create hairstyles inspired by ‘femi-casual sea creatures.’ Happily, we had backstage access as lead stylist Alex Efstratiou ”pushed the envelope to create styles that matched their vision.” See a pictorial story of the show below.

We adore this look created by the ARROJO NYC editorial team for the Irina Vitjaz presentation at New York Fashion Week AW ’17. A vintage glamor wave, with one side tucked behind the ear and the other side tumbling forwards, over the neck and shoulders, a soft asymmetrical effect is created, one which encourages the eyes of an admirer to drift all across the face frame, taking in the model’s high jawline, sultry eyes, and perfect pout. Best of all, with the right tools and techniques you can recreate this look at home in 15-20 minutes. Learn how below. Click for StyleNotes →

It is possible to grow out a fringe without wearing hair pinned back for six months. The key is to embrace some interim steps, reshaping your bangs instead of just letting them go wild.

Less than a decade ago, trends in beauty remained relatively consistent for seasons at a time. Now, however, beauty inspiration doesn’t only come from runway and celebrities. Everyday we’re privy to the personal lives of social media personalities and starlets which helps influence our hair color and style options. Online platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Youtube have given birth to plenty of the moment looks and are at times the most influential. Don’t believe me?
