Paris Fashion Week: Romantic Punk at Haider Ackermann

The devil was in the details at Haider Ackermann’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection, which showcased intricate stitching of colorful threads sewn throughout each garment. Wanting to play off these details, Aveda Guest Artist Kamo created a punk rock style complete with threaded needlework in the hair. “This woman is a party girl who has no problem rocking day-after hair from a long night of carousing,” Kamo said. “She isn’t yet hardened by the scene. She still has soft and romantic sensibilities about her.”

  Backstage Aveda Pros from around the globe helped bring Kamo’s look to life, including Bea Watson, Global Educator, Hair Styling; Bastian Casaretto, Artistic Director, Germany, Austria, Switzerland; and Steven Laudat, Aveda Educator, France.

Get the Look:
1. Set a styling foundation by misting Pure Abundance Style-Prep throughout the hair.

2. Taking a generous amount of Phomollient Styling Foam in hands, warm up the product in palms and then distribute throughout the hair, being sure to cover each strand.

3. Blow-dry hair using the hands to help add volume and texture.

4. Let hair lie with no visible part and mold around face; begin to add dimension with a crimping iron by clamping small sections of hair 2-3 inches apart throughout the head.

5. Start crafting a punk style with the hands and intermittently using Air Control Hair Spray to hold the created shapes.

6. Once the shape is achieved, take small sections of hair on the right side and weave strands with thread going upwards creating haphazard braid-like patterns; repeat on the other side (see above).

7. Set the look with a final spritz of Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray.
