Last week, Aveda Guest Hair Artist, Jon Reyman, styled hair for the Ann Yee Spring/Summer 2015 collection presentation at Refinery Rooftop. The Spring/Summer 2015 collection was inspired by New York City’s unstable weather patterns, specifically the time of year between winter and early spring.
To coincide with the clean lines of the clothes, Reyman created a sleek style that transformed into bent waves to add a slightly wild look. “The super straight top that develops into rapid waves speaks to Yee’s vision of that time of year when an urban dweller is suddenly faced with a storm that can be forceful, moody and exhilarating,” Reyman said.
We love the unexpected boldness of this modern ponytail! To recreate the look, follow these steps:
Step 1: Create a strong side part on the left side of the head and divide hair into a left, right, and back section.
Step 2: Prep the sections with Aveda Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight and blow dry. Be sure to direct hair away from face.
Step 3: Once hair is straight and dry, mist with Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray. Begin working horizontally from one side, and wrap sections of hair around large U-pins in a figure-8 pattern. Secure each with a small clip.
Step 4: Hold each secure clipped section with a flat iron for 10 seconds to set shape. Once cool, gently release the pins and brush out hair.
Step 5: Work Light Elements Texturizing Creme into the waves with hands carefully, and smooth down the top of hair at the crown.
Step 6: Pull the sides of the hair back to a meeting point that is just left of center, secure sections with a clear elastic. Take a bottom section of hair at the nape and wrap around the elastic and secure with a pin.
Step 7: Finish with another spray of Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray to set the look.
