nyfw spring '15 {hair}: scünci x Tracy Reese

i was beyond in love with the ballerina-inspired collection and complimenting hair styles seen at Tracy Reese's spring 2015 runway show ~ did you see it? the best part, in my opinion, were that the hairstyles are easily created using affordable products from scünci hair accessories!

 the scünci x Tracy Reese ready-to-wear collection will be available in spring 2015 {the collaboration marks the first-ever designer partnership for the leading hair accessory brand}, but you can get the look at home right now with the chic headbands from the current collection!

as you can see, hair accessories were integral to the Tracy Reese collection for spring 2015, so it seems fitting that she'd turn to scünci to create exclusive items for the runway. the designer also tapped Bok-Hee, master stylist, to lend her creative perspective in the development process. together, the three joined forces to come up with the pieces based on the hair look, including fabrics, designs and colors of the ballet-inspired collection.

 both easily beautiful and on trend, thin and thick soft headbands were used in various textures. here's how to get the look yourself...

1. add tons of texture to the hair using a texture spray, a round brush and a teasing brush such as Conair's Infiniti Pro Thermal Round Brush and Teasing Comb.

2. pull back into loose ponytail in the middle of the back of the head and secure with a scünci No Slip Grip or Evolution Hair Tie.

3. next, layer headbands in different textures and colors to add some pop and dimension to your style with a scünci No Slip Grip or Interlock Fabric Headwraps.

4. finally, take the ponytail and loop the end in the back of the bottom of the headband to create the perfect "unpolished" look.

pull up the headbands and voila ~you have textured ballerina hair, imperfectly perfect for every day wear! 


"Tracy Reese was inspired by the modern dance techniques of Martha Graham for her spring 2015 collection, and when you look at her pictures, you see that she is very structured and angular," explains makeup artist Daniel Martin.

the focal point when it came to makeup for the show was exaggerated, 60s-inspired graphic eyeliner, and rather than going for a traditional cat eye, Martin used NYX The Curve liner to give models a more square-shaped line above the lashes, and drew a banana-shaped line over the lids to keep the graphic element. Martin also gave the models a two-toned lip to create depth, and accentuated their natural lip color using various shades of the brand’s Simply Pink Lip Cream collection.
