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.

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.”
During the first-ever Men's Fashion Week in NYC, Aveda Global Artistic Director for Hair Styling, Allen Ruiz, embraced natural texture at Public School's Spring 2016 show. “This is my fourth season with designers Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne. Each time their designs get more innovative which allows me to have that much more fun with styling the hair,” Ruiz said.
To add to the drama of Dolce & Gabbana’s Couture show, Redken Global Creative Director Guido created a variety of sleek chignons and knots to anchor the designer’s stunning headpieces. Says Guido, "The hair for Dolce & Gabbana was dependent on the headpiece made for each girl. I prepped the hair with Redken’s guts 10, and then created a center part before styling various types of chignons, loose Sicilian knots, braided knots and loose buns.” Get the Look:
To enhance the romanticism on the runway at the recent Atelier Versace 2016 show, Redken Global Creative Director Guido created a natural, nymph-inspired style adorned with a leafy headband for a fantasy-like feeling.

For TOME's recent Resort 2016 presentation in New York City, hairstylist Dale Delaporte from Prema Salon NYC was inspired by Dorothy Parker and an element of casual elegance when creating the luxurious, yet laid-back locks for the models. According to Dale, the look at TOME was based on "the girl that falls on the 'street' side of elegant, so the hair had to represent that. This collection has a lot of volume and some really interesting shapes, so the hair needed to stay controlled and casual.
