New York Fashion Week is the event of the year for fashionistas around the globe. We get to see upfront and personal the new hair, makeup, fashions and color trends the industry has chosen to lead the upcoming season. In order to share in this experience, and to bring you guys a first look on what’s trending for the Spring/Summer 2016 season, #Aveda teamed up with #LatinaCOOLMag and gave us backstage access to the Osklen and Public School shows.
The Hair Trends
Sleek, sophisticated, elaborate, yet simple to the eye, on the go, care free, and pulled back hair is what we saw backstage.
For Osklen, Antoinette Beenders, Aveda Global Creative Director, interpreted the designer’s inspiration of a girl visiting the indigenous people of Brazil’s Ashaninka tribe, and her hair transformation after being influenced by the simplicity of tribal Amazonian life- by creating a knotted twist- with hair coming through the top to look like feathers, “like a bird.” To create this look, hairstylists used Aveda’s Thickening Tonic to prep the hair, the new Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo for a non-shiny appearance, and Aveda Control Force Firm Hair Spray to set and finish the look. See below pictures, and a video from hairstylist on step by step “how to”:

For Public School, Allen Ruiz, Aveda’s Global Artistic Director for Hair Styling said the look was clean, pulled back, for a woman on the go, bohemian, strong, and natural- a “smooth operator rope braid” inspired by the seductive R&B singer, Sade. This look was created to complement the nomadic, care free, and cool collection the designers debuted down the runway. To accomplish the look, the stylists used Pure Abundant Style Prep from Aveda for a matte finish, and the Aveda Control Force Firm Hair Spray to control fly-aways and freeze. Get the look:

Easy, natural, soft, strong and bold eyebrows, light blush, cheekbone definition and highlighting- a look for the busy, independent, “on the go” woman of today.
For Osklen, Romero Jennings, the lead makeup artist for the day, created a red tinted lip using a Mac Cosmetics lip pallet, and StrobeCream to moisturize and illuminate the face, while accentuating the Red, Gold, Silver, look inspired by: “a girl’s journey visiting an indigenous tribe in Brazil.” This is a natural and fresh look, with emphasis on the lips and fresh face.
For Public School, the inspiration for the look was a modern, edgy, natural-cleaned skin girl. For the brow, stylists used a brown pallet from Maybelline for a more natural looking brow. The new matte Daringly Nude #655 from Maybelline was used to achieve a natural, and fresh lip. Finally, for the eye, a white liner and black liner were incorporated to create 3 white lines on the lid, and a black one on the lash line. See below pictures to get the look:
Favorite Looks: Public House Runway Show
We loved the SS16 PS collection. It’s for the relaxed, cool, edgy girl that’s busy with work, school and loves to explore the city on feeling comfortable and fashionable.
