Men’s Fashion Week circled back to the Big Apple this week after a whirlwind of Paris pitstops. Bringing a stylish balance of streetwear and not-so-traditional outwear to the city, each of the shows further proved that designers are continually blurring the conventional lines in men's beauty and fashion. While the fashion surely deserves its own recognition, you know we're here for the hair.

In New York, Oribe Educators took on eleven different shows on July 9 and styled both classic and creative looks on their models. Here, they share step-by-steps for each of the looks.
