Looking for wildly inventive New Year’s Eve hair inspiration? Maybe you’ll pick up a few ideas from Ginger Rubio Salon‘s The Hunt fashion and hair event, held at DNA Lounge this fall. Channeling Little Red Riding Hood and Twilight, the model’s moody up-dos, “boho meets barbarian” men’s cuts, feathers, braids and exaggerated extensions were inspired by German forests, supple leather, utility, fantasy and history.
Party-goers packed the massive venue to its gills and danced to the beats of house DJs Adrian and Mysterious D while waiting for the unveiling of the Ginger Rubio crew’s transformation of the models waiting in the wings.
When they appeared, models with hair by the Ginger Rubio team and makeup by Nikole Elaine made their way down the runway sporting smokey eyes and muted tones just as Mysterious D kicked up the beats on the ones and twos in time with the models on the stage. Hot on their heels were oohs and ahs from the audience and satisfaction from the stylists and curators backstage.
Below, a few more shots from this avant garde San Francisco style event.
