The new look for SS2016 has arrived – simplify that style by embracing a more effortless and care-free attitude to cutting, with The Twist Cut, created by Aveda Global Creative Director, Antoinette Beenders.
The Twist Cut is all about a reversion to natural-looking hair, creating an imperfect texture by applying a simple twisting technique when cutting, to leave ends looking raw and undone. Coupled with a chunky, sultry fringe and a length just skimming the shoulders to give the shape a slightly weightier feel and left to air-dry – this new cut is versatile and suits almost every face shape.
“Natural hair is making a comeback, and I think we’re ready for it, twisting sections before slide-cutting downward enhances the hair’s natural texture and keeps it from looking overly polished,” explains Antoinette.
Starting at the nape, chunky sections are taken at random and twisted before slice-cutting downward – leaving an imperfect and raw finish.
1. From damp hair, the natural texture is enhanced using Be Curly Style Prep from mid-lengths to ends
2. Spritz Thickening Tonic is applied to the roots and mid-lengths to increase the chunky feel.
3. Then, large sections are twisted and left to air-dry. Alternatively, tip head forward and use a diffuser and dry hair upside down until 90% dry and then flip head back and leave the rest to naturally dry.
