NYFW Step-by-Step: Understated Waves

Derek Lam's Spring/Summer 2018 show was inspired by a ’70s desert safari in today’s world. The rich colors and sophisticated patterns of the collection were enriched by Oribe Global Ambassador James Pecis' (@jamespecis) fresh, light style. The understated look had an easiness to it that struck a balance between undone and polished.

Get the Look:

  • Saturate hair with Maximista Thickening Spray (concentrating on the roots) and blow dry.
  • Create a natural center part and over direct the hair back to keep the sides flat against the head. 
  • From the ears back, use a 1.5-inch curling iron to create an easy “S” wave.
  •  Apply Featherbalm Weightless Styler at the ends for extra polish.

About: Oribe Hair Care was founded by renowned editorial and celebrity hairstylist Oribe and beauty industry veterans Daniel Kaner and Tev Finger with the goal of creating a new kind of hair company, one that was designed with the most talented salon professionals and the most discriminating customers in mind. When developing the line, we didn’t want to compromise on any detail. We leveraged skin care technology and natural actives to deliver high-performance, treatment-based products—all while never forgetting that healthy hair is the underpinning for sexy, glamorous styling. 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.
