The amika team was backstage for the Kaelen + Katie Gallagher FW15 presentations this season, under the direction of lead hair stylist Amy Farid. See below for a behind the scenes look into both shows, along with a step-by-step styling tutorial for both looks.

The style at Kaelan was inspired by the TV drama Twin Peaks, featuring foxy, feminine curls in a 50's-meets-90's style.

1) Beginning with damp hair, create a deep side part on the model and apply amika Bombshell Blowout Spray.

2) Rough dry the hair with the amika Power Cloud Repair + Smooth Dryer. If the model’s hair is curly, apply amika Straight Up Smoothing Balm and blow dry smooth.

3) After drying, curl the hair with the amika Digital Titanium 25mm Pro Curler—beginning with the section parallel to the part, closest to the hairline. Curl the hair away from face, and set each curl with a pin curl clip.

4) Continue curling, finishing at the nape area. Let the hair cool for 5 minutes after curling.

5) Remove the pin curl clips and brush out the hair.

6) Back comb the front section to give the hair a little height, and then bring all of the hair over to the side opposite the part and allow for the curls to drop.

amika Un.Done Texture Spray

1) Start the look by creating a natural, center part and apply amika Bombshell Blowout Spray to dampen the hair. Massage the product into the hair to enhance texture.

2) Lightly blow-dry the hair with the amika Power Cloud Repair + Smooth Dryer, with your fingers acting as a diffuser.

3) When hair is dry, use the amika Digital Titanium Glide Styler to create a bend in the hair. The hair should not look curled.

4) Spray amika Un.Done Texture Spray into the hair, and finish the look by leaving the hair tucked into the clothing.

New York Fashion Week - Coach SS18

Americana is a theme seen throughout many shows at New York Fashion Week this year and as designers head back to their roots, they bring with them new styles of vintage eras. It seems as though Stuart Vevers for Coach SS18 drew upon America in the 70s for his inspiration – he introduced denim and brought back the mailbox bag and western influenced leather jackets – presenting his creations on a glittery backdrop, therefore transforming his designs for a new age crowd. The artist Keith Haring was also an inspiration for Vevers as he drew upon the playfulness of his designs to help inspire some of the spirit of the city.

Must-See Styles From the 2017 Emmy Awards

The 2017 Emmy Awards were a showcase of stars from screens both big and small. We watched their Insta-story updates while they primp and prepped for the show in anticipation of one of our favorite parts of the event – aside from the winners – their stroll down ruby Red Carpet. Last night’s award show took us back to the Hollywood glam the city was built upon – with starlets donning classic shapes and suggestive colors, the jewels, the clutches and the beauty went hand in hand as they put their best coif forward.
