Dana Goes To Tracy Reese!

One of the best times to visit New York is during fashion week! The hustle and bustle is in overdrive and the energy is electric. Lucky for me, I got a chance to attend the Tracy Reese show and even got in on some backstage access.

I was so excited to learn that lead Hair Stylist Bok-Hee was using my favorite hair care line, SheaMoisture, to help create the looks. Boh-Kee said she wanted to go for a transparent and airy look. She said when collaborating with Tracy on the look, she thought of a girl in a desert who was "beautifully tired yet natural."

 Boh-Kee working her magic

Boh-Kee and her team used SheaMoisture's new professional line along with some of their staples to get the models ready for the runway. First, they used SheaMoisture Professional Curl Leave-In Conditioner to prep the hair. Then, the front hairline was sectioned off and the remaining hair was pulled back into a low chignon using SheaMoisture Professional Blow Dry Cream!  The team used SheaMoisture Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Weightless Texture Spray on the front of the hair, then teased it to create the airy look. Finally, the whole head was finished using SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Mist.

Now the models are ready for the runway!

Tracy Reese's show was nothing short of awesome! The collection was full of color, florals and sequins. I loved that the pieces were very wearable for even the everyday woman like myself. Wide legged pants, shift dresses and rain ponchos were some of the items that danced down the runway. The shoes had funky chunky heels and were designed by Sarah Jessica Parker who was also spotted in the front row. Andre Leon Tally, SNL's Sasheer Zamata and celeb stylist June Ambrose were also in attendance!
