International Aveda Pros converged this past weekend in Paris to work backstage at the Haider Ackermann Fall/Winter 2015 showing for Paris Fashion Week!
The devil was in the details for the collection presented by Haider Ackermann, which showcased intricate stitching of colorful threads sewn throughout each garment forming a collection that was lady-like while edgy and urban. Wanting to play off these details, Aveda Guest Artist, Kamo, created a punk rock style complete with threaded needlework in the hair.
“This woman is a party girl who has no problem rocking day-after hair from a long night of carousing,” Kamo said. “She isn’t yet hardened by the scene. She still has soft and romantic sensibilities about her.”
Backstage Aveda Pros, including Bea Watson, Global Educator, Hair Styling; Bastian Casaretto, Artistic Director; and Steven Laudat, Aveda Educator, France assisted in creating Kamo’s vision.
Here’s how to recreate the look at home:
Step 1: Set a styling foundation by misting Aveda Pure Abundance Style-Prep throughout the hair.
Step 2: Taking a generous amount of Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam in hands, warm up the product in palms and then distribute throughout the hair, being sure to cover each strand.
Step 3: Blow dry hair using the hands to help add volume and texture.
Step 4: Let hair lie with no visible part and mold around face; begin to add dimension with a crimping iron by clamping small sections of hair 2-3 inches apart throughout the head.
Step 5: Start crafting a punk style with the hands, intermittently using Aveda Air Control Hair Spray to hold the created shapes.
Step 6: Once the shape is achieved, take small sections of hair on the right side and weave strands with thread going upwards creating haphazard braid-like patterns; repeat on the other side.
Step 7: Set the look with a final spritz of Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray.
