Trend alert, “Controlled Chaos”

Aveda Global Styling Director Allen Ruiz created a full-bodied, texturized halo of hair at the Ann Yee Fall/Winter 2013 show. He calls the ethereal but modern result “controlled chaos.” We call it a trend!
“Ann wanted a progressive style to complement her collection. The look is woodsy and idiosyncratic in spirit, with a dim romantic undercurrent,” said Ruiz.
Get the look:
Prep with Aveda Pure Abundance™ Style Prep™ and blow dry with fingers directing the hair away from face. This will add the texture and volume needed to create this look.
Mist small triangular-shaped sections of hair with Be Curly™ Hair Spray. Working horizontally from the nape, wrap each section of hair around an extra-large U-pin in a figure-eight pattern. Secure each with a small clip.
If you don’t have U-pins, twist pieces of tinfoil into a U shape. The foil will conduct heat just as well as the U-pins.
Hold each section with a flat iron for 15 to 20 seconds to set the shape. Once cool, gently release the pins and brush hair with a wide-toothed comb.
Back comb a few sections on the top and sides of the head to create volume, working from the hairline back to the crown and just above the ears, carefully maintaining some definition in the curls above the forehead.
With your fingers gently direct hair back and away from the face and then divide into two sections – as if you were doing pigtails. Tie these sections into a knot at the nape, tucking the ends while folding the hair toward the center to create a twist. Secure with bobby pins and finish with Aveda Control Force™ Firm Hold Hair Spray
