One of our favorite things about the Novis Spring/Summer 2015 presentation was that it was all about vivid color and bold patterns! To compliment the boldness, Aveda Guest Artist for Hair, Frank Rizzieri, created a sculptural knotted bun as a fast and fresh undo.
Frank Rizzieri described the look backstage at New York Fashion Week: “This is definitely the bun of that cool girl who just happened to easily twist her hair up and off of her face. It has natural pieces poking out so it’s not too perfect. It’s definitely graphic, different, but simple looking to match the details of the clothes, but not take too much away from the collection.”
We love this look for its chic simplicity and quick construction! Follow these steps to recreate the knotted bun at home:
Step 1: Spray hair with Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep for volume and thickness and to prep hair for the finished style.
Step 2: Blow dry hair straight to help expand the volume while also creating sleekness; add a light mist of Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine for a touch of shine.
Step 3: Pull hair tightly back into a ponytail that rests just above the nape, but below the center of the head; firmly secure with an elastic.
Step 4: Taking two sections from the ponytail begin to knot the sections tightly until you reach the end of the ponytail.
Step 5: Coil the knotted sections up into the base of the ponytail letting random pieces poke out for added detail. Secure the knotted bun with pins until it is tight to the head.
Step 6: Apply a small amount of Aveda Air Control Hair Spray with the fingertips to gently smooth away flyaways.
