   A-Line Afros at Carlos Campos NYFW: Men’s S/S 2018    
Men’s Fashion Week
New York, NY (July, 2017) – At New York Fashion Week: Men’s S/S 2018

Lead Hairstylist, T. Cooper of Metro Look, and her team were sponsored by

ECRU New York and Wahl Professional  to create tight Afro textured looks for the

Carlos Campos show at IMG’s Fashion Week partner venue,  Skylight Clarkson Sq.

Carlos Campos is a celebrated menswear designer from Honduras. In 2007, he

launched His namesake brand, Carlos Campos New York. The brand’s modern

take on “classic American style… with a Latin twist” immediately earned him the

respect and accolades of the US and Latin American fashion communities. Cooper

called the hairstyle the “A-Line Afro” and it was created by using ECRU products

Defining Styling Potion, Dry Wax, and Acai Protein Oil.  “Upon discussing the

inspiration with Carlos, he let me know that this collection was all about strong lines.  

A lot of the models had natural hair, and he wanted to keep the texture, but didn’t

want a big, round Afro to take away from the shape of the clothes. We decided to

keep the hair fuller on top and much tighter on the sides.” Cooper explained.  After

the cleaned up the hairline, sideburns, and facial hair with a Wahl Beret trimmer, the

stylists saturated the models’ hair with Defining Styling Potion to eliminate frizz. The

stylists then blow dried the models’ hair, while simultaneously rubbing it in a circular

motion with their fingers to form tight coils. For models with longer hair on the sides,

the stylists either brushed the sides and applied Dry Wax for hold, or pinned the

hair back in a mohawk shape (depending on length). Finally, Acai Protein Oil was

patted onto the Afros to add a hint of shine. “The diversity of the ECRU line, really

Allowed  us to create texture on models with different curl patterns beautifully!”

said Cooper. ECRU New York was created to “TREAT & PERFORM”. Silk proteins

are used in many products within the collection because they strengthen and improve

the integrity of the  hair. ECRU New York's ability to repair damaged hair while creating

style for trends and fashion has made it a favorite choice among models and fashion
