Last month Design Essentials had the opportunity to partner up with celebrity stylist, Keith Campbell for the Harlem Fashion Row Fashion Show and Style Awards. Campbell’s team helped DE turn heads by creating both sophisticated and dramatic hairstyles for spring 2015. In honor of the occasion, which spotlighted some of today’s hottest fashion designers like Byron Lars, Josh & Nicol, K. Milele, and Harlem Haberdashery, Design Essentials relives the experience with some of our favorite styles. Here’s our Get The Look recap:

Sleek & Sexy Ponytails

HARLEM HABERDASHERY: Sleek, center part ponytails ruled for the laser cut skater skirts and body skimming sheaths from Harlem Haberdashery. For hair that shines like glass, Design Essentials® Sleek Max Edge Control kept edges in place and the Hydrience Argan Moisture Replenishing Mist added shine plus heat protection to loose waves and ponytails.

60’s Inspired Bouffants

Josh & Nicol: Over the top teased hair retained its elegance with the 60’s inspired bouffants of models for Josh & Nicol. Presenting chic coats, dresses and suiting channeling African prints, pretty pumped-up volume was achieved courtesy of the Design Essentials® Natural collection such as Honey & Shea Edge Tamer and Twist & Set Setting Lotion.

BYRON LARS: Artistically avant-garde pompadours graced models wearing the chic, irreverent designs of Byron Lars. Reminiscent of killer tidal waves, Campbell’s team created the look on straight and naturally curly textures using Design Essentials® Sleek Max Edge Control to slick sides and Form Professional Holding Spray to keep locks volume into place.

Complementing the fierce floral and flounces from the K. Milele Collection by Kiki Patterson, Campbell created messy milkmaid braids and flowing fishtails plaits. Wild, natural locks like Bre Scullark’s from America’s Next Top Model were kept soft and hydrated with the Design Essentials® Hydrience Argan Collection Moisturizing Creme and Design Essentials® Natural Curl Enhancing Mousse.
