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 →

Only 2 1/2 months into 2016 and we’re already seeing major moves toward ungendered fashion. Pantone has released a gender neutral palette and even chosen a pairing of pastel pink and blue—the traditional hues representing masculine and feminine—as the colors of the year. Urban Decay has made androgynous model Ruby Rose their new ambassador. Zara released its first gender fluid clothing line, and Landeros presented a genderless clothing line at New York Fashion week. What does the trend mean for hair? Click the notes to find out. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

If you’ve been following awards season, you’ve probably noticed that the red carpet has been sparse on rainbow tresses. Even at New York Fashion Week there wasn’t much in the way of vibrant color. It seems we’re entering a season of subtlety, but that doesn’t mean that vibrant hues have disappeared, just that they’re being used in more understated ways. The looks pictured above feature a splash of vibrancy painted on the top surface of the hair. Creating a bright splatter-paint splash. Learn more about this emerging technique in the notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
