Effortless, classic beauty is the cornerstone of hair stylist Mune Tran’s work. “I believe that no matter how long a style takes to achieve, it should never look too intentional or unnatural,” says the Pennsylvania native, who discovered her love for styling at the age of 12.
Mune began her formal training in 2000 with creative director, Nathan Rosenkranz, where she developed her technique in classic styles, from layers to bobs. With her sights set on editorial and the fashion industry, she moved to New York and honed her skills at the Rita Hazan Salon. Under the guidance of renowned stylists such as Eddie Ngai, Eugene Toye, Juan Carlos Maciques, and Nelson Vercher, Mune mastered long layers, blow outs, couture styling and men’s grooming while working with the salon’s clientele as well as for editorial, runway and television projects. “I think my biggest ‘ah-ha’ moment came when Rita flew a team of us to Chicago to work on the Oprah Winfrey Show,” she says.
Mune’s work has since been featured on Good Morning America, Lifetime Television, The Food Network, Bravo’s “Make Me a Supermodel,” The Morning Show, Project Runway All-Stars, Elle, Grazia UK, Surface, Chaos and Tokion magazines. Emma Stone, Ben Gibbard, Ingrid Michaelson, Sia and Helena Lalita are among the celebrities who’ve graced one of Mune’s hairstyles, and she continues to lend her expertise backstage for designers such as Marchesa, Vivienne Tam and Costello Tagliapietra for New York Fashion Week since 2006.
