Inspired by Jazz-age muse, heiress and political activist, Nancy Cunard, the Bibhu Mohapatra Spring 2015 collection echoes the unapologetic strength of women who break the rules. Cunard’s avant-guard look is brought to life through the opulent fabrics and palette of Mohapatra’s collection. “I drew inspiration from a strong, controversial woman and wanted the hair to compliment her rule-breaking style,” says designer Mohapatra.

Designer Rachel Zoe’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection celebrated the jet-set style of the 1960s, a decade when travel was an excuse to dress chicly. Zoe’s combination of timeless shapes and tailored pieces are reflected in the makeup and hair that blend both the contemporary and the classic. "This season's hair stays true to the beauty of the 1960s,” said Zoe. “The low pony with a center part is polished and mod. But staying true to my love of bohemia, I also wanted to incorporate a braid element.” "

A team of cosmetology students and instructors from Tricoci University of Beauty Culture are set to style the hair and makeup of models at the upcoming Latino Fashion Week, taking place in Chicago the week of October 1-5, 2014.
