Odile Gilbert was the key hair stylist for Aveda. Oldie defines his creation by saying, “This look is very intricate but the off-center bun above the ear is a very elegant, sophisticated evening look.” Sophisticated, dramatically romantic, and environmentally conscious; fashion week, fashion chic, indeed.
Get the Look/Step-by-Step:
Step 1: Create a deep side part and section hair off behind the ear. Spray with Air Control Hair Spray and brush through to smooth.
Step 2: Create a high pony tail right above the right ear and secure in place with an elastic.
Step 3: Divide pony in half and roll each section around a “rat” (small hair sponge), creating a cylinder-like shape. Hold in place with pins and spray with Air Control Hair Spray.
Step 4: Repeat with other section of pony tail, creating a bow-like shape.
Step 5: Apply a small amount of Aveda Light Elements Defining Whip throughout remaining section of hair on other side of the head. Spray with Air Control Hair Spray before wrapping hair down and around the back of the head along the hair line, and up around the base of the pony tail. Secure with pins throughout to keep in place.
