On The Scene

Spring may be in the air, but in the world of fashion—and hair—Autumn has arrived! Here, we give a glimpse of style to come from New York Fashion Week for Fall/Winter 2019…

L1Cornrows, envisioned by Aveda Guest Artist Jon Reyman , f Spoke & Weal salons, give off an urban chic vibe for the Hellessy fashion presentation.

L2Glam edge! “[The] look was inspired by Disco, gangster with a dash of Jerry Hall. The hair is glamour mixed with androgyny that only The Blonds can deliver!” details Kevin Hughes, Moroccanoil Artistic Director, about the coifs stalking The Blonds runaway.

L2Shear beauty is what it’s all about on this cut spotted backstage at the Hellessy show.

L2Groovy…A plush ‘Fro at the Elie Tahari show takes its cue from the ‘70s, as interpreted by Aveda Guest Artist Jon Reyman.

L2After-hours discotheque was the mane inspo for lead hairstylist Peter Gray, for Cutler Salon/Redken, at the Staud show. “Depending on natural texture, you will either see a combed, sleek look or carefree, celebration of texture. All pinned back with a beautiful bold, gold barrette.”
