Get the look: Cool girl waves

Straight from NYFW

Beauty Crew Beauty Editor / September 14 2016

The international fashion week shows offer a huge spectrum of hair trends; some involve larger-than-life hairstyles that are done to prove a point, others are more relatable, especially for those of us back home in Oz. One hair look that grabbed us immediately was from Tome’s New York Fashion Week show, which saw models come down the runway with loosely tousled waves that were so quintessentially Australian; just imagine pairing it with a white summer dress, tan coloured sandals and a golden complexion. What also intrigued us was how the hairstyle was created - instead of bending hair back and forth with a straightener, sections of hair were wrapped around a large barrel tong with the tool held horizontally. It was genius and is super simple to achieve if you’re a pro at curling hair already.

The goal was simply to enhance each girl’s natural look. Aveda Damage Remedy Split End Repair helped tame fly-aways and add a bit of polish to waves. It gives health and integrity to the hair; it’s perfect for the modern girl on the go.

Prep your hair

Apply Aveda Damage Remedy Split End Repair to the ends of completely dry hair to instantly bind separated ends back together and help prevent new splits from forming.


Create a part

With a comb, create a middle part then spritz Aveda Thickening Tonic all over hair.


Add texture

Wrap one inch wide sections of hair around a large barrel curling iron (such as VS Sassoon 38mm Ceramic Curler). To form ripples rather than corkscrews, hold the iron horizontally to the head before winding strands around the barrel, making sure to keep the ends away from the heat.


Pull it out

Work another pea size drop of Aveda Damage Remedy Split End Repair through the ends of your hair with your fingers for a piecey effect.


Finish the look

Mist your finished look with Aveda Air Control Hair Spray (L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Normal Strength also works well here).
