Get the look – Christian Siriano Fashion Week

Soft and natural for Christian Siriano's showAveda lead stylist, Antoinette Beenders created long sensuous waves on the models for Christian Siriano for the Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Week show.

 “I was inspired by Christian’s muse for this collection: a charming, smart girl who radiates happiness,” said Antoinette Beenders (Aveda). “The hair is super wearable and reflects her flirty, yet clever nature. It’s fun, fresh and modern — just like the collection.”
Beenders’ describe the look as “playful and looks effortless. We’ve updated the loose, beachy waves of the ’90s with a more groomed look that’s smart, young and approachable.”
Here are Antoinette Beender’s tips and step-by-step instructions to get the look at home:
·        Dampen hair at the root with Aveda Volumizing Tonic and blow dry with a large round brush to create natural volume. For added lift, use Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray as a setting lotion while blow-drying by lightly misting the hair.
·        Use a one-and-a-half-inch barrel curling iron to curl one-inch sections of hair away from the face until all hair is curled. Rake with fingers to loosen. 
·        Flip hair upside down and gently brush curls through using a Mason Pearson hair brush.
·        Flip hair back up. Create a deep side part and gently smooth out the top of hair using a comb, maintaining volume at the part.
·        Spray Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine onto a kabuki makeup brush and stroke the brush over hair from roots to ends to give a healthy shine. Keep style in place and protect against humidity with Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray.
