3 How-Tos from Men's Fashion Week 2015

The Council of Fashion Designers of America shook things up by hosting a male-only fashion showcase of spring/summer 2016 collections. Take a look at three men's looks and how you can re-create them. 

Aveda for Public School 

Aveda Global Artistic Director for Hair Styling Allen Ruiz created carefully textured hair with Aveda Men’s products for Public School. The style fit the bad-boy vibe of the utilitarian menswear and police-lineup backdrop.

1. Prep towel-dried hair with Aveda Thickening Tonic. Spray from roots to ends in sections.

2. Comb through to distribute.

3. Blowdry with fingers.

4. Emulsify dime-sized dollop Aveda Men Pure-Formance Grooming Cream between palms and massage into hair.

5. Mold hair into desired style with a small amount of Aveda Men Pure-Formance Pomade.

6. Lightly mist Air Control Hair Spray to set.


L'Oréal Professionnel for Artistix

The Tecni.ART collection from L’Oréal Professionnel starred in styles paired with the Artistix collection at Men’s Fashion Week 2015. Amit Abraham individualized grooming based on models’ personality and hair type.

1. Prep hair with L’Oréal Professionnel Liss & Pump Up to smooth and volumize.

2. Blowdry hair with a small, round brush.

3. Sprinkle with L’Oréal Professionnel True Grip at roots to create volume.

4. Apply a generous amount of L’Oréal Professionnel Extreme Splash to sides and back of head and comb tight to shape of the head.

5. Lightly brush top of hair back. Set using L’Oréal Professionnel Extreme Lacquer hairspray.


Oribe for Carlos Campos

Designer Carlos Campos’ birthplace of Honduras was the inspiration for his spring/summer 2016 collection, which featured rich rainforest hues on sharply tailored pieces.


Oribe lead stylist Kien Hoang drew inspiration from Central-American humidity for the hair, which was simple but thoughtful.


Hoang used Oribe Foundation Mist, Après Beach and Crème for Style tailored to each model’s hair texture for an air-dried, effortless look.
