MIZANI, the professional authority for all curl textures, took Spring 2015 New York Fashion Week by storm backstage at Victor dE Souza!

MIZANI Celebrity Artist and Master Stylist at Dop Dop Salon Cesar Ramirez created a bold, textured style that ruled the runway. See below details and step-by-step on how to get the look.

MIZANI Celebrity Artist and Master Stylist at Dop Dop Salon Cesar Ramirez, who created hair for the show, brought the vision to life by developing an ethereal, yet voluminous look in a striking blonde hue. Coupled with MIZANI styling products, he came up with the idea to create triangle shapes, with an unconventional, coiled texture to produce a magnificent reverse “A-Line Bob,” which paired perfectly with dE Souza’s collection.

“I wanted to design a dimensional style in this icy, arctic shade for a dramatic look,” says Ramirez. “Using MIZANI products to create the bold, textured style was a perfect match, as the brand has always been a leader in the professional textured market. I loved having the opportunity to work with Victor because he brings drama and his pieces are incredibly theatrical, so it really inspires my creativity.”

How to get the look:
Start by applying a small amount of MIZANI Iron Curl Heat Styling and Curling Cream to the entire head of hair, create a center part and brush smooth to start the shape
Take 3″ hair pins and wrap small strands of hair in a “figure 8” around the pin, holding the ends in place
Once the hair is wrapped around pins, spray it with MIZANI HRM Humidity Resistant Mist and heat with a flat iron for a few seconds; repeat the process until your entire head is covered with pins
Next, remove the hair pins and brush it out to reveal a very teased and textured head of hair
Cut the length very blunt into a triangle shape, frame the face and create a sharp line to reveal a cutting-edge A-Line Bob
Lastly, spray the entire head with MIZANI HRM Humidity Resistant Mist to set the shape, and voila!

The WHIT Spring 2015 Collection is inspired by designer Whitney Pozgay’s teen years and is influenced by the Girl Movement of the 1990’s. The collection explores the dichotomies of adolescence – the desire to be both feminine and tough, thoughtful and reckless, womanly and girly – all at the same time.

Graphic florals, a painterly check, abstract spin-art and a Kathleen Hanna-inspired “Girls to the Front” print are among the season’s custom prints. The color palette features bright primaries against a strong backdrop of black and white graphics.

Fine Fragrance at Scentarium by Sue Phillips

The Fashion Reporter had the opportunity to sit down with the legendary Sue Phillips of Scenterprises in NYC to discuss fragrance and how Scentarium was born. Located in the very exclusive Tribeca section of Lower Manhattan lies a world of fine fragrances far removed from the typical beauty giants who are located in midtown Manhattan. Once upon a time, however, Sue Phillips was very responsible for the success of these giants.

sue phillips scent
Sue Phillips began her career at Elizabeth Arden, and traveled around the country as training director conducting beauty training seminars. She was soon promoted into product development for Color Cosmetics, but her road didn’t end just there. She was later hired by Lancôme, where she worked as marketing director for Fragrance & Men’s Skincare, launched Programme Homme, and developed fragrance introduction for Tresor. Soon thereafter Sue was hired as Vice President of Fragrance Marketing for Tiffany & Company and developed the first iconic TIFFANY perfume for the 150th anniversary. She created “Tiffany,” “Tiffany for Men”, “Society” by Burberry, and “Burberry for Men” fragrances. Sue also developed the original three eponymous Trish McEvoy fragrances.

Sue is also an Adjunct Professor of Cosmetic & Fragrance Marketing at LIM, training the future of fragrance marketers and perfume designers.
Over time, Sue’s passion grew deeper and she felt that she could offer more to the world of fine fragrances. Through her journey as an influencer in fragrance, she decided to start her very own perfumery in February 2014. She started custom fragrances six years ago at a time where it was unheard of. Fragrance Kit is a special product Sue recently created to take individuals on a fragrance journey without even having to travel to her headquarters in NYC.

The kit contains essential scents, a formula card and strips so that a custom fragrance can be created to each customers liking. A formula can be re-created by simply sending in the card so that it would always be on file.

Sue Phillips is by far a trendsetter and leader in the fragrance world. Her innovative ideas have customers traveling from all over the world to get their very own potion of heavenly scents offered at the Scentarium. For more information on where to buy, please visit www.scenterprises.com.
