NYFWM FW16: Loose Grunge at CWST by Dan Nguyen

Weighed Down Texture

A source of inspiration for CWST designer Joe Sadler, Washington’s San Juan Islands yielded the collection’s palette of muted hues—greens, blues, and grays—ever-present across the Pacific Northwest’s lush forestry.

Grunge Hair

These darker elements noted by Sadler translated into wool linen coats, tribal totem scarves and beanies.

To mimic rainy city Seattle’s dreary aura, lead hairstylist Dan Nguyen created naturally, weighed-down textures. Loose, grunge locks were the result. Below, Nguyen’s steps to recreating the look.

Weighed Down Texture


  1. Start with Oribe Foundation Mist, spraying section by section throughout the hair from roots to ends.
  2. Beginning three inches from the scalp, work in Oribe Sculpting Cream.
  3. Apply Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream from mid-lengths to ends to give the hair sheen and a weighed-down look.
  4. Twist and lightly clip the hair to lend natural movement. Allow hair to set and gently diffuse.
  5. Finish by lightly misting hair with Oribe Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray.
