How To's

Designer Hanako Maeda’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection for ADEAM was strongly inspired by her Japanese roots. The designer mixed modern prints with traditional Japanese elements, which resulted in designs that were a beautiful marriage of East meets West. Lead hairstylist Yannick d’Is for Oribe Hair Care wanted to create a youthful, fresh look to complement the clothes. “I wanted the hair to look textured while keeping it clean and touchably soft,” said d’Is. 

For the Coach Spring/Summer 2016 presentation at New York Fashion Week, Redken Global Creative Director, Guido, created an effortless, softly textured hair look. "There’s always something so cool and effortless about the Coach girl," says Guido. "The look this season is very easy and real with a lot of natural, cool texture. I created a natural center part with my fingers, and then simply added some softness and richness with Redken’s One United before enhancing the hair’s natural movement with Redken’s fashion waves.

Exploration of light traveling through darkness. Half-Light. Semi-Darkness. Presence of color. Absence of color. Translucent textures and solid textures. These were just a few of the elements that animated the vision of Rita Vinieris in designing her spectacular Spring 2016 collection, shown on Friday, September 11, at the sun-drenched Rooftop Terrace at Carnegie Hall in NYC.

According to Linzee Katzman, Education Director for ted gibson beauty, "Carmen’s inspiration for [the Spring/Summer 2016] collection was koi cranes and calligraphy, so we wanted to carry that inspiration through to the hair. This chic chignon has an interesting shape and a polished and structured finish to complement the gorgeous clothes.”   Get the Look:
