We always look forward to Tracy Reese’s fashion show and this season the designer didn’t disappoint. A modern blend of ‘70s African style and futuristic elements set the tone for the Tracy Reese fall 2015 collection and the hair was the perfect match.

“While distinctive details and a multitude of layers came into play, the vision was to always keep the woman looking strong,” says Bok-Hee, lead hairstylist.

To reflect the vibe, Bok-Hee created a linear, severe ponytail. Follow the steps and recreate the look at home.

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

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

Step 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.

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

Step 5: Combine the glosser and soufflé in the palm of the hand and pull through the tail of the pony for intense shine and hold.

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

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

Step 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.

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

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

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