Working on behalf of Aveda, hairstylist Odile Gilbert created a modern, playful Bohemian look for the models at the John Patrick Spring 2010 Organic collection.

Hair is smooth and shiny on top with soft, free-flowing curls below the cheekbone and volume at the front—pulled back into a barrette, adding a girly touch.



Get the Look

Step 1: Prep hair with Aveda Phomollient™ Styling Foam to add body, volume, and shine.

Step 2: Brush hair through and create a deep side part.

Step 3: Divide hair into three sections: bottom, sides/top and middle, and secure in place with hair clips. Spray each section generously with Aveda Air Control™ Hair Spray for shine and hold.

Step 4: Starting with the nape of the neck, curl small sections of hair using a 1 inch barrel curling iron. Once curled, roll each piece into a loop using your index finger, and hold in place with a single-pronged hair clip. Continue curling hair, working around the sides toward the top of the head, leaving a one inch piece of hair untouched. Spray each curl with Aveda Air Control™ Hair Spray for added hold.

Step 5: Curl the one inch piece of hair forward and secure with a single-pronged hair clip to allow the hair to cool.

Step 6: With the exception of the front curl, remove all hair clips and brush curls through to create soft, full waves.

Step 7: Rub Aveda Light Elements™ Shaping Wax between palms and smooth over the top of hair to reduce flyaways and add shine. Hair is now smooth from crown to cheekbones becoming full, loose curls.

Step 8: Remove clip from top curl and twist slightly to create volume and lift in front. Secure hair in place with two small hair pins, and then pull back with a larger barrette that matches hair color. Spray Aveda Air Control™ Hair Spray directly on the lifted section of hair to add volume and hold.

Step 9: Finish the look with a final misting of Aveda Air Control™ Hair Spray.
