Get the Look:

1.​ ​Prep the hair with ​Foundation Mist​and create a clean—but not strong—center part.

2.​ ​For fine hair, apply ​Maximista Thickening Spray​. If your hair is thicker, use ​Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse.​Blow-dry and tuck the hair behind the ears.

3.​ ​Apply ​Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream​through the lengths of the hair for a sleek and effortless look.

Kempner: Hair by Ramona Eschbach

To complement Kempner’s ’70s-inspired collection for Fall 2015, hairstylist Ramona Eschbach created soft, natural waves that went perfectly with the models’ Studio 54-ready ensembles.

Get the Look:

1.​ ​Wet the hair with ​Foundation Mist,​t​hen apply ​Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse​to the roots.

2.​ ​Blow-dry for natural, smooth and clean hair.

3.​ ​Spray ​Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray​on the hair section by section. Use a curling iron to curl each section by creating a figure​-​eight around the iron rod.

4.​ ​Finish the look with ​Dry Texturizing Spray​.

Jill Stuart: Hair by James Pecis

Jill Stuart had a ‘70s vibe running through her Fall/Winter 2015, so lead hairstylist James Pecis wove the fun, young, free-spirited feel of that era into the hair look. “Some key words to describe this woman and her soft, perfectly imperfect waves are renegade, poetic and sultry,” Pecis explained. “She’s very cool and she’s having a blast. She’s an individual.”

1.​ ​Create a soft center part that looks natural. Spray ​Maximista Thickening Spray ​into the lengths and blow-dry it in.

2.​ ​Bend sections around a 1-1 1⁄2” curling iron in alternating directions to create a flat, natural wave.

3.​ ​If curls look too perfect or “done,” spray ​Foundation Mist o​nto hands and run through the curls to break them up a bit. 4.​ ​Use ​Dry Texturizing Spray​to create more texture, if needed.

Yigal Azrouël: Hair by James Pecis

Yigal Azrouël was inspired by art movements such as Russian Modernism and Supremetism when creating his Fall/Winter 2015 collection, and he included many geometric elements into his designs. To complement the clothing, key hairstylist James Pecis created a very clean and controlled hair look with a strong center part and blunt ends.

1.​ ​Saturate the hair with ​Foundation Mist​and create a strong center part. Cut the hair (or hair extensions) in a very straight line across the bottom.

2.​ ​Spray ​Maximista Thickening Spray​throughout the lengths to add strength and control to the hair and blow-dry with a flat brush.

3.​ ​Use ​Superfine Strong Hair Spray​at the sides to add a little shine and keep them lightly slicked back.

The Blonds: Hair by Kien Hoang

The Blonds looked to the famous Stanley Kubrick film ​Clockwork Orange ​to inspire their Fall 2015 collection, which consisted of couture-style garments that were hand stitched and embroidered. For their military-themed runway show at Milk Studios, The Blonds--and hairstylist Kien Hoang--wanted each model to have a very similar look. “They were supposed to be carbon copies of each other,” explained Hoang. “So we used waist-length blonde hair pieces to tie the looks together.” Using Oribe products, Hoang created a big-and-sleek style at the top, then attached the blonde hair to fall down the length of their back. Kien gave each model a tight double French twist in the back to hide away some of the hair and form a base on which to secure the blonde pieces.

Get the Look:

1. Divide the hair into two sections by clipping the hair at the top of the head. For the bottom section, flat-iron the hair with ​Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray​.

2. Create a double French twist with the bottom section of the hair, which will serve as a base for the blonde hair piece.

3. Prep the blonde hair piece with ​Shine Light Reflecting Spray ​and place it between the two hair sections.

4. Unclip the top section of the hair and spray​ Dry Texturizing Spray​ at the roots. Backcomb the hair for height and volume.

5. Use ​Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray​and a Mason Pearson brush to brush back the hair, forming a square shape. Use ​Original Pomade​to slick back the sides of the hair.

6. Finish the look with ​Superfine Strong Hair Spray​.
