Aveda Summer Style: Topknot with a Twist

As the summer season continues through the month of August, we all start to feel a little hot and sticky. These final humid summer months lend well to low maintenance, keep cool hairstyles, and today, we’re giving you the deets on the our favorite summer topknot that debuted for Witchery during the Spring/Summer 2015 shows in Australia:

Step 1: Prep towel dried hair using Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep to aid in smoother blow-drying and to control frizz. Evenly distribute through roots to ends for a sleek finish.

Step 2: If you have fine to medium hair, spray Aveda Thickening Tonic in sections throughout the hair to create extra volume and hold.

Step 3: Blow dry hair using a combination bristle and round brush. While drying, direct the hair up and away from the nape of the neck and up and back away from the face, smoothing out any kinks.

Step 4: For additional shine, apply a small amount of Aveda Light Elements Smoothing Fluid throughout the hair with hands.

Step 5: Using a Wooden Paddle Brush, groom hair up towards the top of the head creating a grooved natural active texture, then secure hair into a high, tight ponytail with elastic.

Step 6: Around the base of the ponytail, tie an oblong piece of fabric that is 2 inches longer that the length of the ponytail. Secure with pins and allow the ends to fall freely.

Step 7: Begin to twist the hair toward the base of the ponytail to create the twisted bun, secure with pins. Then gently weave the fabric through the twisted pony until the fabric has just a couple of inches of length left. Secure with pins.

Step 8: Arrange the end of the fabric to desired shape around bun. Finish with a light spritz of Air Control Hair Spray for extra hold.
