For Patrik Ervell's Spring/Summer 2014 runway show, lead hairstylist Holli Smith designed a look with Oribe that can only be described as a new wave greaser. With a collection heavily inspired by water, Holli created a style reminiscent of choppy waves on a rough sea.
Linh Nguyen for Cutler/Redken Salon created two different yet complimentary hairstyles for Marissa Webb Spring/Summer 2014, capturing the effortlessly chic rocker girl look with both.
"Inspiration stemmed from today’s trendy half shaved head and (what I imagined) a modern day Amy Winehouse should look like, as well as playing with and developed a lot of texture. Basically, she’s the fun, cool (but nice!) downtown girl everyone wants to hang out with!”

At Katya Leonovich's Spring/Summer 2014 fashion show at The Studio at Lincoln Center, lead hairstylist Moiz Alladina aimed to reinvent the classic pompadour.
"Her clothes have a bit of an edge, so we wanted the hair to reflect that," said Moz. The structural style combines two classic looks into one fresh new updo: the pompadour in the front morphs into a faux bob in the back.
The look was finished by a few free-flowing pieces in the front pulled across the face to soften the look.

To complement Ostwald Helgason's colorful spring collection, Oribe Educator Ramona Eschbach decided to go natural with the hair, creating a very low ponytail with a center part tucked behind the ear to round out the entire look. "The clothes are quite busy as far as prints. It's very youthful and the makeup is pretty strong as well, so I didn't want the hair to be too much. The look reminds me of a schoolgirl. It's something clean and classic with a little twist."Read on to see how to get the look! →

For Spring/Summer 2014, Rachel Zoe takes the modern jetset girl on a safari; a traveling muse wearing her femininity with effortless confidence. This collection offers a new take on exotic glamour, incorporating ethereal elements, polished silhouettes, innovative materials, and blending of the classic with the contemporary. The color palette includes earthy cognacs, khakis and golds; refreshing bursts of mint and blush; and bold black and white statements.
For the J. Mendel Spring 2014 collection, designer Gilles Mendel parlayed prints inspired by the iconic French chanson Cargo Culte into a collection that embraced his signature luxe-feminine Parisian aesthetic. ”The collection is incredibly luxurious, but there's a sportiness and ease to the silhouettes that makes everything feel effortless. Anthony’s approach to the hair feels soft and natural, and his choice of a sleek side captures a beautiful sense of gamine chic,” said Mendel.
