Osklen Spring/Summer 2016 tells the story of a young girl traveling to visit the Ashaninka tribe of indigenous people in a remote Brazilian village. Her journey evolves in her look, from luxe and self-confident to a more self-actualized and artistic woman.
Backstage at Osklen's presentation at New York Fashion Week, Aveda Global Creative Director, Antoinette Beenders created an intricate knotted twist to show the look of the girl after her time with the tribe.
"The devil is in the details with soft wisps of hair throughout the sides, crown and in the back, all reminiscent of feathers," Beenders said. "The knot is simply folded up, with the ends flared to provide an artistic look while also getting the hair away from the face, so she can better explore this new world."
Check out these steps to get the look at home:
Step 1: Prep hair with the Aveda Thickening Tonic and blow dry hair straight.
Step 2: Pull hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure with an elastic bungee.
Step 3: Taking the end of the ponytail, pull hair up and over the base of the pony to make a loop, secure with a second bungee 1" from the end of the ponytail.
Step 4: Take the remaining end and loosely loop hair around the base of the pony, leaving hair to fan out the sides and top. Secure with a third bungee.
Step 5: Apply new Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo (Available November 1, 2015) on each side of hair to create a matte look and begin to gently massage sides to bring out wispy strands.
Step 6: Set the look with Aveda Control Force Firm Hair Spray.
