Gosha Rubchinskiy

Hair by Ramona Eschbach

Russian streetwear designer Gosha Rubchinskiy made his runway debut in Paris last month. The Spring/Summer 2015 collection梪tilitarian-style jackets, leather blazers, patchwork button-downs and brightly colored separates梬as inspired by street style and skater culture in his hometown of Moscow, as well as in New York and Paris.

According to hairstylist Ramona Eschbach, the show抯 casting was just as important as the clothes. 揟here were only a few real models in the show. The rest were friends of the designer or 憆eal young, punk skater boys, explained Eschbach. 揑 made each one look like a better and stronger version of himself. She started off with strengthening or re-cutting the hair and squaring the hairlines before styling.

Eschbach also discovered a winning combination of products: Sculpting Cream and Fiber Groom Elastic Texture Paste. 揑t抯 a great way to get a textured but dry finish that has hold.

Get the Look:
1. After squaring the hairlines with clippers, apply Foundation Mist to the hair.
2. Use Sculpting Cream and then blow-dry the hair. 揧ou抣l find the hair keeping a piecy texture that抯 not too greasy or heavy, noted Eschbach
3. Finish the hair with Fiber Groom Elastic Texture Paste.
