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.

Christian Siriano Inspiration:
Christian Siriano’s spring 2014 collection is inspired by a recent trip to Isla Mujeres (the “Island of Women”) off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. The architecture and bright tropical colors of the residential buildings, the crafts, handmade textiles and the Caribbean coast served as strong influences for the colors and silhouettes of the collection. The collection – like the women of the island – is bright, young, fresh, and romantic and is a celebration of women.
