NYFW How-To: Public School’s In-and-Out, Faux Mini Bob by Aveda’s Allen Ruiz

Allen Ruiz, Aveda Global Artistic Director, Hair Styling, created a versatile, in-and-out look for the Public School Autumn/Winter 2016 show in New York City.

The Wild West of the 1800’s met the streets of the Bronx, New York City of the 1970’s for the Public School Autumn/Winter 2016 women’s show at the Hauser & Wirth Art Gallery in Chelsea.

Allen Ruiz, Aveda Global Creative Director, Hair Styling, created a smooth and full style that easily tucked inside and outside a collared winter coat – perfect for the frigid New York City February temperatures.

The ‘in and out’ faux mini bob was designed to keep hair sleek and cool, while its wearer navigates through the lawless elements of nature— all with a sense of determination and attitude,” Ruiz said.

Steps to the Look

Step 1: To keep style smooth and static-free all day, prep hair with Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Nourishing Styling Creme and blow dry hair straight.
Step 2: Begin to flat iron sections of hair and create a small, hidden braid from ear to ear at the back of head as an anchor for the style.
Step 3: Pull hair into a low ponytail and secure an elastic around the style 2-inches below the nape of the neck.
Step 4: With hair secured back, take the elastic base and move up to where the hidden braid rests and pin the elastic to the braid to place final faux bob style.
Step 5: Set the look with Aveda Control™ Force Firm Hair Spray.
