#NYFW Aveda Trend Report: Ann Yee Spring/Summer 2015

A straight style expands into erratic waves for Ann Yee’s collection

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.

To coincide with the clothes that featured malleable textures and clean lines, Aveda Guest Artist Jon Reyman created a sleek style that morphs into a rhythm of fitful waves coming together briefly off center, only to expand out into a full ponytail. “The super straight top that develops into rapid waves speaks to Yee’s vision of that time of year when an urban dweller is suddenly faced with a storm that can be forceful, moody and exhilarating,” Reyman said.

How-To Get the Look:

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 Elements 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 Force Firm Hold Hair Spray.
