When manes and garbs alike at a show during Fashion Week induce feelings of astonishment and slight confusion, you’ve just witnessed the opus of Shayne Oliver, founder of luxury streetwear brand, Hood By Air. Some noteworthy pieces from Oliver’s FW16 collection included graphic monochrome bodysuits and knee-high wader boots.
Meaningful to Oliver and the show’s lead hairstylist, Amy Farid, the looks are about, “leaving and escaping the religious persecutions like the pilgrims did from England to come to this free land.” Hence the olden, outlandish hairstyles Farid created on models. Keep scrolling for steps to all three of the ‘dos.

- Slick hair back with Bumble and bumble Thickening Hairspray and Bumble and bumble Does It All Styling Spray into a low ponytail and secure with elastic.
- Add a little Bumble and bumble Bb.Gel and smooth flyaways for added sleekness.
- Customized wiglets were cut and attached to hair with hairpins and adorn with a metal square buckle.
- Finish with Bumble and bumble White Hair Powder for added texture.
GET THE LOOK: FOIL-SET TEXTURE
- Roll foil into sticks and fold into a u-shape.
- Wrap ends of foil with hair in a figure-8 technique and fold foil over. Heat with a flat iron and let cool.
- Brush out hair and spray with Bumble and bumble Does It All Styling Spray to create an airy, frizzy texture.
- Brush back the crown area and adorn with the metal square buckle at the back of the head, referencing the pilgrim inspiration.
- Some models had their crown wrapped in cellophane to reference the saran-wrapped bags in the collection.
