Lived-In Looks from New York Fashion Week

close formula

2015 has been the Year of the Lived-In Look. From street style to life on the NYFW runway, these textured, casual styles look good on almost everyone and give any style that little bit of low-key cool. Check out some of our favorite lived-in styles.


Hair by Thomas Osborn,TIGI U.S. Creative Director


At the Libertine Show, the brand kept to it’s bold name, blending together high energy colors in care-free styles. To follow suit, CATWALK by TIGI led by Thomas Osborn,TIGI U.S. Creative Director, created undone yet polished, out-all-night styles that are sure to please any client looking for a fun, lived-in look that keeps it cool and casual.


Get The Look
1. Prep hair with CATWALK by TIGI Blow Out Balm to achieve smoothness and shine. Using the tail end of a comb, create a severe side-part.


2. Blow-dry the hair with a round brush, lifting the hair at the roots and smoothing through the ends to create volume at the crown. Direct the hair forward towards the face for the side swept effect.


3. Next, take small sections of hair and fold around the air concentrator of the dryer to achieve the “buckled” texture. Then, using duckbill clips, pin along the folds of the hair and lightly mist CATWALK by TIGI Work It Hairspray to set the look


4. To finish, separate and loosen the hair with fingers and use a soft bristle brush to tease hair at the crown 


Christian Siriano
Hair by Anthony Cole, Sebastian Professional International Artist


For Christian Siriano’s Spring ’16 collection, the focus was nature—crisp, clean sand tones—think sculpted stone, wood work and wrought iron. So, the best way to set off this soft, earthy look? Some organic lived-in styles! Lead Stylist Anthony Cole, Sebastian Professional International Artist, nailed the feel of the show with this tousled, glamorous look. See how to do it!


Get The Look
1. Start by applying Sebastian Professional Stylbrid 9 to the whole hair.


2. Flat iron the hair straight.


3. Apply Sebastian Professional Texture Maker directly on the hands and rub vertically into the hair in two-inch sections at a time.


4. Flat iron waves in by taking sections and vertically pleating the hair all the way through, for a more natural wave.


5. If needed, place in a fringe piece and use Sebastian Professional Microweb Fiber to match the exture and shine to the natural hair.


6. Finish with Sebastian Professional Zero Gravity.
