aveda fashion week trend report...alexander wang

In keeping with the realistic approach to hair that we've been seeing this Fashion Week...Eugene Souleiman (for Aveda) created this look at Alexander Wang.

The inspiration for this look is about the girl who’s just left the gym and has pulled her hair back into a “sweaty,” textured, undone half-pony. The bottom is loose and the texture is dry.

Here's how you can get this look on your own...

Step 1: Spray Aveda Volumizing Tonic throughout dry hair and finger comb to create a “sweaty” texture – a.k.a. – “gym hair.”

Step 2: Mist Aveda Air Control Hair Spray onto hair and pull top half into a ponytail. Twist hair from the top of the pony to the end and dry with a diffuser.

Step 3: Sprinkle Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion at the roots and rake it through with fingers to add texture, volume and grip.

Step 4: Massage the twisted pony upwards while drying with a diffuser to add texture and flyaways.

Step 5: Release ponytail so that hair is loose with messy tendril curls. Spray with Air Control Hair Spray and dry again with a diffuser.

Step 6: Bring the top and sides of hair together into a half-pony and secure tightly at the crown with a black string.

Step 7: Rake hands through roots once more to add roughness and texture.

This look works best on longer hair and you can make it a little more polished if you'd like.

For the makeup...although it's a little hard to tell in these photos...it's a little more dramatic with a gunmetal smoky eye, a light pinky flushed cheek, and slightly deeper pink mouth.


With love (always),
