NYFW How-To: Comic Book-Style Sleekness

Skate culture and the contemporary art scene inspired designers Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper to create their label, Rochambeau. For their SS18 collection at New York Fashion Week, the designers drew inspiration from artist and sculptor, Aaron Curry, whose prints and colors were seen coming down the runway. Oribe Educator Joey George (@joeygeorgecomplemented the art-driven collection by creating hairstyles representative of the unique art school student. Some models sported sleek, smooth styles, while others were given distinctive haircuts mimicking the comic-book aesthetic of Curry’s work. 

Get the Look: 

  1. Create a strong center part (for the sleek styles only).
  2. Prep all hair types with Maximista Thickening Spray and Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse from roots to mid-lengths. 
  3. For finer hair, apply Featherbalm Weightless Styler from mid-lengths to ends and let air-dry.
  4. For resilient hair, layer Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray and Straight Away Smoothing Blowout Cream and blow dry.
  5. For curly hair, use Curl Control Silkening Crème on damp hair and diffuse.
  6. Finish with Superfine Hair Spray.
