Learn how to get loose, beachy waves from Aveda's lead stylist.

Bun

Aveda lead stylist, Antoinette Beenders created  long, alluring wavy hairstyles at the Christian Siriano Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Week show. The hair captured the same energy as the collection's muse: a smart, flirtatious girl with captivating charm.

"The hair for Christian Siriano this season is playful and looks effortless." said Beenders. "We've updated the loose, beachy waves of the 90s with a more groomed look that's smart, young and approachable. I was inspired by Christian’s muse for this collection: a charming, smart girl who radiates happiness. The hair is super wearable and reflects her flirty, yet clever nature.  It’s fun, fresh and modern — just like the collection.”

How You Can Get the Look

  1. Dampen hair at the root with Aveda Volumizing Tonic and blow dry with a large round brush to create natural volume. For added lift, use Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray as a setting lotion while blow-drying by lightly misting the hair.
  2. Use a one-and-a-half-inch barrel curling iron to curl one-inch sections of hair away from the face until all hair is curled. Rake with fingers to loosen.
  3. Flip hair upside down and gently brush curls through using a hair brush.
  4. Flip hair back up. Create a deep side part and gently smooth out the top of hair using a comb, maintaining volume at the part.
  5.  Spray a makeup brush with Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine and stroke the brush over hair from roots to ends to give a healthy shine. Keep style in place and protect against humidity with Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray.
