New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014

ANN YEE - Spring/Summer 2014 Trend Report

New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014
Aveda Global Styling Director Allen Ruiz created what he referred to as "urban street style colliding with shiny, modern elegance" for the Ann Yee Spring/Summer 2014 presentation.

Yee was inspired "by the history of urban Detroit, Michigan - USA, its current crumbling economic state, combined with an appreciation for the survivalist spirit of the city as it moves towards a transformation. The collection entitled - Resurgence - revels in the structured, metallic elements of the auto industry and the draped, angular silhouettes of the city's weathered buildings against the skyline."

How to get the look:

Step 1: Mist dry hair with Aveda Pure AbundanceTM Style PrepTM and blow dry straight with a round brush. This will add the texture and grip needed to create this look.

Step 2: Separate out 3 sections of hair (left, middle, right) and prep the 2 side sections with Aveda PhomollientTM Styling Foam to ensure a clean look that adds shine without build up or weight.

Step 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.

Step 4: Repeat on the other side and tie both sections together at the nape of the neck.

Step 5: Gather the top half of the middle section of hair and begin roll and pin into a structured twist that kisses the braid just behind the ear.

Step 6: Flat iron the remainder of hair to fall over the shoulders and clear hair tie. Use Aveda Control ForceTM Firm Hold Hair Spray to smooth hair into place for a firm, long lasting hold.

Step 7: Finish the look with a fine mist of Aveda Brilliant Spray on ShineTM to eliminate flyaways.
