Miami Fashion Week (MIAFW) is dedicated to cultivating the fashion industry in Miami and positioning the city as a high-quality fashion hub. They are the first fashion week solely dedicated to showcasing Resort Cruise Collections while simultaneously focusing on echoing the message to a broader audience through the production of quality content. MIAFW takes advantage of the strong and diverse connection Miami has built between Latin America and the United States. Hosted by Antonio Banderas, and sponsored by Saks, Lexus and the Miami Brickell Center to name a few, this event is star studded, fun and the epiphany of Fashion and Miami Trends with the South American Flair, and stunning runway shows.
Style the Runway was the Exclusive Hair Styling Product for Miami Fashion Week for the second year in a row, and partnered with Woody Michleb Beauty Salons from Palm Beach, and Lead Beauty Directors Woody and Amy to be the exclusive Hair and Make Up team backstage!

Style the Runway's skilled team coiffed all the models, and created all the hair and make up looks, which appeared flawless on the runway. "With this event we really worked with each designer to design looks that enhanced their collections. Each collection was stunning in its design, but we have noticed a lot of details such as collars or ruffles around the neck and shoulder areas. Because of this we kept all the hair overall on the runways sleek and off the face, really allowing for the models to look fresh, and to show off their beauty and the clothes." said Amy Michleb, who led the efforts to satisfy all the designers. "My personal favourite designers from the week in terms of their collections and also hair looks were Angel Sanchez, and Benito Santos.
"For Benito, we created a beautiful sleek upstyle to compliment his grecian inspired theme, with a smooth braid that connects to the fringe area providing an elegance and subtle detail that is unique."
"With Angel Sanchez, the look was very hard to execute! With a style like this not one hair can be found out of place, and with models having short hair or layers, a couple were very challenging. We created a top knot bun, but placed it asymmetrically on the forehead, with all the hair combed tight and smooth to that one point. On the runway with his collection it looked very powerful."
