Lead Hair Stylist: Bok-Hee for SheaMoisture

Inspiration: “Sheer transparency enhanced by ‘moments of shine’ set the tone for the Tracy Reese collection this season. While distinctive details such as color and embellishment came into play, the vision was to keep the woman looking natural and truly authentic. The beauty look completely reflects this – the skin is glowing and dewy while the nails are kept simple in design. With this in mind, I went about creating a no-fuss hair look signified by natural textures and an effortless chignon that perfectly complemented the overall finished look.” – Bok-Hee, Lead Hair Stylist

Get the Hair Look:

Srep 1: Fight frizz and nourish hair by working in SheaMoisture Professional Curl Leave-In Conditioner.

Step 2: Parcel out small portions of hair around the crown of the head to be set aside and gather the rest to be pulled into a low chignon.

Step 3: Apply SheaMoisture Professional Finish Blow Dry Cream throughout hair as you pull it into a low ponytail at the nape. Layer SheaMoisture Professional Vibrant Color

Step 4: Shine Glaze onto strands to provide the ultimate clear shine boost.

Step 5: To create the chignon, gently twist the hair from the nape of the neck to the ends, and then begin to coil it in a counter-clockwise circle. Continue to twist the hair into a bun shape using the index finger to hold it in place.Secure sides of the bun with bobby pins. Gently pull and loosen the edges of the bun to get the desired shape, then secure with more bobby pins.

Step 6:  With the remaining wispy pieces of hair, apply SheaMoisture Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Weightless Texture Spray and use a teasing brush to create structure.

Backstage With SheaMoisture for Tracy Reese AW 2015



Photo Credit: Bennett Raglin
Show: Tracy Reese Autumn/Winter 2015

Lead Hair Stylist: Bok-Hee

Inspiration: “A modern blend of ‘70s African style and futuristic elements set the tone for the Tracy Reese collection this season. While distinctive details such as print and the combination of layers came into play, the vision was to always keep the woman looking strong. The beauty look completely reflects this ultramodern vibe – the eyes are bold, while the nails are dramatic in design. With this in mind, I went about creating this linear, severe ponytail that perfectly complemented the overall finished look.” ~Bok-Hee, Lead Hair Stylist

Get The Look:

1.  Apply SheaMoisture Tahitian Noni & Monoi Smooth & Repair Blow Out Cream to protect hair and add shine before drying.

2. Using a paddle brush, dry hair brushing away from the face, towards the crown of the head.

3. Massage SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Gel Soufflé between hands and use to pull hair into a severe ponytail at the crown. Secure with an elastic.

4. Once secured, spray SheaMoisture Tahitian Noni & Monoi Smooth & Repair High Shine Glosser onto paddle brush and smooth the ponytail.

5. Combine SheaMoisture Tahitian Noni & Monoi Smooth & Repair High Shine Glosser and SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Gel Soufflé in the palm of the hand and pull through the tail of the pony for intense shine and hold.

6. Wrap wire around the base of the ponytail and manipulate so that the wire sits in the center of the tail, unseen.

7. Twist the ponytail until it makes a tight rope with the wire in the center. Secure at the end with a small elastic.

8. Still holding the roped hair, loop it back to the base of the head and secure with bobby pins. This will create a loop with the hair that points in a diagonal away from the head.

9. Once firmly secured, twist the looped hair counterclockwise, creating a spiral effect.

10. Slick back any loose hairs around the face with SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Edge Treatment.

11. Finish by spraying SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist for hold and hydration.
