New York Fash­ion Week is first on the style cal­en­dar. It’s here that the sea­son kicks off and where the world’s fash­ion­istas go for looks that are wear­able, trendy and di­verse. Tre­semmé hair di­rec­tor Or­lando Pita ex­plains: “New York has a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing loud and ag­gres­sive, but I’ve only ex­pe­ri­enced love and ac­cep­tance. It’s got a great mix of di­ver­sity, and it’s here that fash­ion and hair cel­e­brate in­di­vid­u­al­ity and achiev­able styles. Women don’t want to see con­cep­tual hair and makeup that they can’t recre­ate – now, we’re mov­ing to­wards more de­sir­able looks from head to toe.” Or­lando con­cedes that there is one trend that won’t go away: long hair. “It’s still the most man­age­able ’do,” he ex­plains. Luck­ily, the lat­est styles work well on long, short, curly or kinky tresses. So, which one will you try to­day? Curls and tex­ture were cel­e­brated at the Kate Spade and Os­car de la Renta shows. Hair­styl­ist Bob Recine says, “I’ve al­ways felt that less is more. It’s the small mis­takes that at­tract a per­son, like that lit­tle strand of hair that flirts with your mouth, or wispy pieces that es­cape – that’s what peo­ple are in­ter­ested in. We’ve moved away from cook­iecut­ter styles and em­pow­ered women to look like them­selves, to em­brace the flaws that ex­press their in­di­vid­u­al­ity.” To get this ’do ( LEFT), Bob used his hair ar­se­nal in a dif­fer­ent way: he spritzed hair­spray onto the brush be­fore brush­ing for touch­able hold.
