#NYFW Backstage Hair Report: Ann Yee SS 2014
For Ann Yee‘s Spring/Summer 2014 Presentation, Aveda Global Styling Director Allen Ruiz created what he calls “urban street style colliding with shiny, modern elegance.” The urban street style is an ode to Yee’s inspiration drawing from the history of Detroit, Michigan. The collection itself, called “Resurgence,” incorporated influence from the auto industry through its use of angular silhouettes and metallic elements.
Get the look as seen on the models of Ann Yee SS14 by following these steps (you can also check out the behind the scenes footage with Ruiz):
#1: Mist dry hair with Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep. Blow dry straight with a round brush. This will add texture and grip needed to create this look.
#2: Separate out 3 sections of hair (left, middle, right) and prep the 2 side sections with Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam to ensure a clean look that adds shine without build up or weight.
#3: Carefully begin to gather hair from the temple and form a tight, delicate braid down to the nape of the neck. Secure with a clear hair tie.
#4: Repeat on the other side and tie both sections together at the nape of the neck.
#5: Gather the top half of the middle section of hair. Roll and pin into a structured twist that kisses the braid just behind the ear.
#6: Flatiron the remainder of hair to fall over the shoulders and clear hair tie. Use Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray to smooth hair into place for a firm, long lasting hold.
#7: Finish the look with a fine mist of Aveda Brilliant Spray on Shine to eliminate flyaways.
