NYFW How-To: Ethereal Twilight-Hour Waves

In French, “cinq à sept” describes the hours between evening and night when city streets are flooded with the fading light of the sun. In fashion, Cinq à Sept means designer wares that walk the line between romantic and rock ’n’ roll, capturing the spirit of this evening phenomenon. Inspired by the designer’s feminine textures and patterns of the SS18 collection, Kien Hoang (@kienhoang), Oribe Director of Training and Content, styled ethereal hair with cool waves, natural body and straight ends.

Each product has been tested at length on set, backstage and in the salon to ensure that it delivers results, leaving us with a best-in-class collection that truly meets the needs of the hair-obsessed.
