How to play with platinum just in time for spring.


Knot Your Ballerina Bun


Aveda Guest Artist Frank Rizzieri created a sculptural knotted bun for the Spring/Summer 2015 Novis presentation by designer Jordana Warmflash for New York Fashion Week.

“This is the bun of that cool girl who just happened to easily twist her hair up and off of her face,” Rizzieri shares. “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 away from the collection.”

How to Get the Look

bun1Step 1: Spritz hair with Pure AbundanceTM Style PrepTM to give volume and thickness in preparation for the hair to hold the finished style. Blow dry hair straight to help expand the volume while also creating sleekness; add a light mist of BrilliantTM Spray-On Shine for a touch of sheen.

bun3Step 2: Create a solid center part before pulling hair tightly back into a ponytail that rests just above the nape of the neck, but below the center of the head; firmly secure with a bungee cord elastic.

bun4Step 3: Taking two sections from the ponytail begin to strongly knot the sections tightly doing this continuously until the end of the ponytail. Coil the knotted sections up into the base of the ponytail letting random pieces poke out for a sculptured look and added detail. Secure the knotted bun with pins until it is tight to the head.

bun5Step 4: Apply Air ControlTM Hair Spray onto a small bristled brush and gently use on the top of the head toward the bun to smooth flyaways.
