Indah recently presented its Collage Collection on July 19 at the W South Beach Hotel during Miami Swim Week. The collection, which featured an array of styles from barely-there bikinis in lavish prints, to '70s-inspired plunging necklines, to shimmering sequins and provocative slits, was inspired by the idea of a collage with a strong "'90s minimalist vibe… layered with late '70s punk rock chic," according to designer Libby DeSantis.

Hairstylist Chanel Peraza-Munoz of BLO Blow Dry Bar Brickell worked with UNITE Haircare to create the fun, flirty looks for Lila Nikole's Swim 2016 Collection show. Inspired by the bright colors and funky prints of the collection, Chanel created a bold, futuristic ponytail topped off with dramatic visors. Get the Look:1. Apply a liberal amount UNITE EXPANDA Volume throughout sections all around the head on the scalp.

The finale of the CFDA Swim Collection show was intended to have groups of girls with the same outfit on, creating an army of girls. This inspired the militant, slicked-back, shiny, glossy hair with the sides held extra tight. Get the how-to from lead stylist Riley McLachlan, below: Get the Look:1. Apply a liberal amount of UNITE ELEVATE Mousse directly onto to the UNITE DETANGLER Brush and brush the mousse through the hair, roots to ends.

Designer Franchesca of Frankie’s Bikinis found inspiration for her recent collection from her hometown on Malibu. The hair, created by a team from BLO Blow Dry Bar Brickell, was designed to complement the looks with fun and flirty beach hair, perfect for day or night, featuring a topknot, beachy waves and peek through braids. Get the Look:1. Spray dry hair with UNITE BEACH Day throughout and blow dry for texture.

Lead hairstylist Gia Tovar of Marianne Strokirk Salon in Chicago worked alongside an exclusive René Furterer hairstyling team at the recent presentation of Gottex's 2016 Cruise Collection on Saturday, July 18 at the luxurious 1 Hotel South Beach. Three glamorous looks were sent down the runway: Profile Blush, which included an array of playful pieces; Profile by Gottex, flirty mix-and-match silhouettes, many featuring bold, graphic patterns; and the highly sophisticated classic GOTTEX line, which featured a variety of glamorous looks.

For the Hammock Swim 2016 show at Miami Swim Week, several different designers were showcased together. To complement this, hairstylist Riley McLachlan created easily-altered hairstyles that transitioned throughout the show to provide different looks as the show progressed. As is it was Swim Week, McLachlan determined that a nice breezy, beachy wave that had an enhanced natural feeling without looking overdone would be the perfect base to build on throughout the looks.

The inspiration behind the 2016 San Lorenzo swim collection was “MIND, BALI, SOUL,” so the BLO Blow Dry Bar-Brickell team, led by Chanel Peraza-Munoz, created three different deconstructed looks enhanced with flowers for a relaxed, island feeling. Based on the models' hair and what they would be wearing, they were styled with either a wrapped fishtail braid, a deconstructed top-knot or a loose, textured French braid.

UNITE Haircare, led by stylist Riley McLachlan, took over backstage at Wildfox's Swim 2016 Collection presentation at Miami Swim Week. Drawing inspiration from Brigitte Bardot and San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district in the 1960's, McLachlan created voluminous crowns, textured waves, and pixie braids for an easy, summery vibe. Get the Look:1. Prep hair with UNITE TEXTURIZA and UNITE 7SECONDS Glossing to act as a thermal protector.

Hairstylist Timothy Silmon used KEVIN.MURPHY to create soft, boho waves for Tori Praver’s Miami Swim 2016 presentation on July 18, 2015. “Tori and I wanted all of the models to have a very natural looking beach wave,” says Silmon. “The inspiration was waking up with bed head after a big night out and heading straight to the beach. The salt from the surf would create separation to the ends for a look that’s a bit grungy and a bit boho.”

For the Richard Chai Men's Spring 2016 show at Men's Fashion Week in New York City, Aveda Guest Artist Frank Rizzieri created a suburban-cool look, emphasizing texture and volume with an air of casual rebelliousness. The collection was inspired by "rebellious suburban youth that break out of code, dressing to the beat of their own drums." To highlight this defiant individuality, Rizzieri opted for a classically untidy style that allowed for much movement.
