On NYFW Day 2, under the creative direction of celebrity/editorial stylist and Back of Bottle Ambassador, Peter Gray, with a team of 20+ Back of Bottle salon and editorial artists from across the nation created a timeless, sleek, and sophisticated ‘regal knotted ponytail’ for the Fall 2024 Ready-to-Wear Badgley Mischka presentation. ‘The Badgley Mischka team was looking for something that was absolutely precise and the epitome of understated elegance to complement their collection, said Gray.’

The curated ‘regal knotted ponytail’ marries the BOB styling team’s artistry and craftsmanship which are paramount for the brand; the hair look was intentionally curated with Back of Bottle products to compliment the craftsmanship in the collection. ‘The inspiration was taken from belt knots on the dresses designed by Mark and James. The reflective shine of the hair’s surface was also inspired by the luxury fabrics the designers used, said Gray.’ The collection featured retro glamour evening wear inclusive of signature cocktail dresses, gowns, and suites with muted color palettes embellished with metallics and jewel tones.

The makeup by Mary Irwin was about Moody Blues, with a touch of Twiggy. The look was inspired by classic Twiggy makeup but modernized with placement and color.
