Aveda How to: Novis City Girl Look

MG_0551-462x693Designer Jordana Warmflash’s inspiration for the Fall/Winter 2015 collection came from the shapes, patterns and use of color in displayed in the famed Henri Matisse’s Cut-Outs. In the late 1940s, Henri Matisse turned almost exclusively to cut paper and scissors, introducing a radically new form of art that came to be called a cut-out.

Matisse would cut painted sheets into forms of varying shapes and sizes which he then arranged into lively compositions, playing with color and contrast.

To complement the bright clothes, textures and patterns, Aveda Guest Artist, Frank Rizzieri, created wearable tousled waves, perfect for a city girl’s afternoon at the museum.

Here are Frank’s 7 easy steps for creating the Novis Cool City Girl look:

1) Start with clean hair, and blow-dry with a round brush.

2) Once hair is halfway dry, mist Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep from roots to ends for added volume and grip.

3) Finish drying hair in sections with a round brush for a slightly rounded straight style. Once hair is dry, apply Pure Abundance Hair Potion for added body and texture.

4) Comb through hair with a wide tooth comb and create an uneven center part, letting the hair fall naturally.

5)  Focusing on the top layer of hair, build in bends by using a 1.75″ and .75″ double-barrel iron, intermittently wrapping sections of hair around the larger barrel through to the smaller barrel, leaving 1 – 2″ straight to the ends.

6) Emulsify 5 drops of Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil and gently tousle hair for added sheen.

7) To finish, set with a light mist of Aveda Air Control Hair Spray.
