new york fashion week spring by avon at iodice

Avon Advance Techniques lead stylists Allen Ruiz and Anthony Barrow together with Brazilian designer,Iodice created the hair look for the Spring 2009 show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

Inspiration for the Look: The look mirrors the Iodice collection, which was inspired by the mysterious lost city of Atlantis. The hair was created to evoke the image of a beautiful aquatic woman emerging from the water.

How to get the look:

Step 1: Use a tail comb to create a clean, triangular section of hair at the crown of the head. Use a clip to keep this section separate from the rest of the hair.

Step 2: Apply a generous amount of Avon Advance Techniques Extra Hold Hairspray to the sides.

Step 3: Layer Avon Advance Techniques Shaping Gel over the hair spray previously applied to the sides and use a fine-tooth comb to comb through

Step 4: Next, use a wide tooth comb to create lines and movement in the sides of the hair leaving the appearance they were just run through and swept back naturally with your fingers

Step 5: Use a blow dryer and diffuser attachment to "set" the sides of the hair with the hair spray/gel combination previously applied

Step 6: Release triangle section of hair at the crown. Using your wide-tooth comb, brush this section of hair back, away from the face and "set" with Avon Advance Techniques Extra Hold Hairspray

Step 7: Finally, pull remaining hair back into a loose pony tail and secure with an elastic band.

For a real life application, if you aren't feeling the tight sides and the look in the back....just take the components that you do like that go from there. For instance, if you love the tighter look of the sides, do that all over the front and gather your hair in the back in a low pony. Think a sleeker look.

Or you could do the teasing at the crown and gather into a low slicked back sides. Or just do a loose pony.

With love (always),
Jennifer and Christine
