NYFW Step-by-Step: 2 ’90s-Inspired Styles

Baja East designers Scott Studenberg and John Targon are known for their relaxed silhouettes and rich fabrics; and their SS18 pieces at NYFW kept in line with their signature style. The outdoor runway show captured the essence of ready-to-wear, and Oribe Global Ambassador James Pecis (@jamespecis) created two hairstyles that served as a nod to the ’90s featuring strong, angular lines and clean shapes with minimalistic undertones. 

Get the look: Geometric Pony

  • Section a deep diagonal side part from right to left toward the ear. Pin this section and set aside. 
  • With the remaining hair, spray roots with Maximista Thickening Spray and sculpt into a low, smooth ponytail. 
  • Drop the previous section, keeping hair to the right and exposing the partings. Connect this section to the ponytail. 
  • Use Star Glow Styling Wax to clean up edges. 
  • Flat iron the length of the ponytail and finish with a touch of Featherbalm Weightless Styler.

Get the look: Textured Back

  • Spray Maximista Thickening Spray throughout the hair, concentrating on the roots from the ears forward. 
  • Use a styling brush to blow-dry hair away from the face, keeping height and volume near the top. 
  • Warm-up Star Glow Styling Wax in hands and distribute through hair for weight and shine.
