Backstage at New York Fashion Week FW12: Style at Tracy Reese

For Fall/Winter 2012 Tracy Reese’s collection oozed a natural street-inspired style with strong shoulders, bold tones and a variety of textures, embellishments and patterns.

A sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, TRESemmé was on hand with stylist Jeanie Syfu who created a textured bed-head look meant to compliment and mimic the style of the clothing.

“The hair is inspired by the mood of the collection – an accessible look that reflects a natural street style.

The clothes are meant to be worn by normal people and when the complete look comes together, it sends a head-to-toe message.”

  • Start by applying TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Root Boost Spray and TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Foaming Mousse (use TRESemmé Flawless Curls Spray Gel for curly hair) through out the hair and power dry with fingers for texture.
  • Back comb roots from below crown to top of head for texture, lightly spray with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray.
  • Take random sections and create a reverse curl with a 1 1Ž4” barrel curling iron leaving ends straight. Spray lightly with TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo for a matte finish.
  • Take a tear drop section from part down to nape and fasten at nape into a low ponytail.
  • Loosely take remaining hair, twist both sides back and fasten with hairpins into a ponytail.
  • Wrap the base of the ponytail with hair.
  • Leave a few loose strands to frame the face, tucking hair loosely behind ears for a casual finish.

“I have to say, this might be my FAVORITE look that Tracy and I have ever created! It is fresh, modern, cool, and just as wearable and appropriate off the runway as it is on the runway,” said celebrity make up artist Mally Roncal.

“The beautiful Tracy Reese collection was full of the most incredible colors, and we were so excited to compliment the colorful clothes with a bright pop of color on the eyes!”
