Fall Style Guide

Fall Style Guide

With summer swiftly drawing to a close, we can’t help but delight in the possibilities a new season brings. To get us ready for autumn, we asked celebrity fashion stylist Elle Werlin and members of the Oribe Education Team for expert advice on transitioning into fall with great style. Read the tips below from Elle and Oribe Artistic Director Ronnie Stam, then scroll through the slideshow to see some of Elle’s favorite emerging trends from the fall runways accompanied by complementary hairstyles courtesy of our educators.

1. ANYTHING LEATHER. A jacket, skirt or pants. Anything leather makes a serious statement.
2. OXFORD SHOES. All the rave. Classy and trendy. We especially love Oxford heels.
3. GLASSING, HALO, GLOSS. Dull summer hair is not okay. Easiest way for high shine is a 30-minute in-salon gloss treatment!
4. FROST MAKE-UP. Who doesn’t want to look like Barbie with frosty blue eyeshadow? Well, maybe not that intense but watch this trend pop up everywhere!
5. ANIMAL PRINT. Colored. Blue, pink, zebra, leopard print, oh so hot!

Just For Fun: Extreme Volume Achieved!

photoOur team has been playing around with the new Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse and we are absolutely thrilled with the results!

Jewels and Crystal, two of our talented stylists at our Kirkland salon, recently tried the magical product on their own hair. They both have naturally fine hair and are always on the hunt for added volume and body.

As you can see in the photo, the Grandiose delivered and then some. If you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend doing so!

Trend: Unstructured Bob

unstructuredSpring has sprung and it’s time for a fresh, new look!

The length of this unstructured bob is perfect for those who are typically nervous to go short. It’s much longer than what most thing of when they hear the word ‘bob’, but still achieves the overall feel.

It can be styled conservatively or more messy for an edgier look. Because of the layers, this cut is extremely versatile.

Check out more images of the unstructured bob and see one of our team members before and after the cut! Read more

Just For Fun: Ombré Lips


Switch it up and have a little fun with your lip color! For ombré lips, all you have to do is paint your top lip, smack your lips together and smudge the color onto your bottom lip. The darker the lip color, the more intense it will be.
