The hair look for the Vivienne Westwood Red Label SS14 Collection was all about chaotic, voluminous waves that was wild and free. Inspired by wild things, this look perfectly complemented the clothing collection, which featured grass-green silks with floral prints and signature Westwood draped cuts.
Designer Alon Livne chose China Glaze Inner Beauty, a natural nude shade, to create a clean, seamless look for his second NYFW show.
"For the Spring Summer 2014 inspiration, I wanted to extend the fingers in the same way I created extensions of the body line with my amorphous curves in the collection. My idea was to almost erase the look of the nail, keeping a nude, neutral finger that would give an ambiguous effect that would almost ask the question if the model was human or alien."
At Cushnie Et Ochs, celebrity manicurist Patricia Yankee and her team applied custom-made stiletto nails with an edge to the runway models, featuring China Glaze Nail Lacquer.“The look at the Cushnie Et Ochs show was inspired by straight jackets and straps, basically being bound up," said Yankee. "The designers and I wanted to create a look that would embody this on the nails. We decided on the sterling silver bands over a milky white nail color to mimic the strap buckles against a restricting white straight jacket."

Lead stylist Duffy for Oribe Hair Care created a young and effortless look for Custo Barcelona’s Spring/Summer 2014 show. Custo Barcelona sent models down the runway in their signature style, bold and colorful prints, but with a tribal flair and in a pastel color palette.“This collection is very wearable, so I wanted to create a hair look that is relatable but with a little edge,” said Duffy, who created a highly texturized bun with a twist for the show. “There are also elements of ‘90s grunge in this look, which is all about texture.”
Backstage at Jeremy Laing, Oribe Educator Ramona Eschbach and her team created naturally textured hair that was sewn in the back with elastic string. "Jeremy always likes the hair to be natural, nothing too contrived or overdone. We wanted to create a small flat head shape with a beachy grungy texture for spring."

Calla took a trip to the beach this season, reinventing her normally ultra feminine and flirty look with elements of grunge and surf culture. "Calla was really inspired by old issues of Sassy magazine from the '90s for this collection. She's also introducing bathing suits this season, so she really wanted to have a beachy texture to the hair, but nothing that was too perfect," said lead hairstylist and Oribe educator Ramona Eschbach.
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.
