Can you believe New York Fashion Week has come and gone?!? Normally, I’m all over the fashion that hits the runway, but this year I’ve been a little more inspired on the beauty side. And thanks to Aveda, who is sharing the beauty looks they created for NYFW, you’ll be able to get these looks yourself. First up, is a super achievable wavy pony tail that I’m definitely going to try and recreate.
I was going to do one big roundup of all of Aveda’s NYFW looks, but I was so inspired that I’m going to share them over the next few days. Hope you enjoy this Aveda for Ann Yee look!
For her Spring/Summer 2015 collection, Ann Yee was inspired by New York City’s unstable weather patterns, particularly that unpredictable time of year between late winter and early spring. “The romanticism of a stormy spring meets mixed media,” said Yee at Refinery Rooftop where her Spring/Summer 2015 collection debuted.

Step 1: Create a strong side part on the left side of the head and divide hair into a left, right, and back section.
Step 2: Prep the sections with Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight and blow dry directing hair away from face. This will add the straightness needed in the front.
Step 3: Once straight, mist hair with Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray. Working horizontally from one side, wrap sections of hair around large U-pins in a figure-8 pattern. Secure each with a small clip.
Step 4: Hold each secure clipped section with a flat iron for 10 seconds to set shape. Once cool, gently release the pins and brush out hair with an Aveda Wooden Paddle Brush.
Step 5: Work Light ElementsT Texturizing Creme into the waves with hands carefully maintaining definition, while also smoothing down the top of hair at the crown.
Step 6: Pull the sides of the hair back to a meeting point that is just left of center, secure sections with a clear elastic. Take a bottom section of hair at the nape and wrap around the elastic and secure with a pin.
Step 7: Finished with Control ForceTM Firm Hold Hair Spray.
