NYFW How-To: Undone Fishtail Bun

Leanne Marshall's SS18 collection was full of bold colors, block patterns, and delicate, flowing dresses. Oddly enough, the designer found her inspiration on a hot and sweaty New York day, fantasizing of a lush paradise away from the hustle and bustle of the city. To complement the tropical fashion oasis, Jon Reyman, (@jonreymanhair) Aveda Guest Artist, created a whimsical, fairy-tale like style. 

How-To:

  • Rough dry Aveda Thickening Tonic into damp hair with an Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion Supreme Paddle.
  • Brush to create some texture.
  • Create a rough side part using an Olivia Garden CarboSilk Comb and secure hair into a low ponytail at base of neck.
  • Split ponytail into two and create fishtail braids. Secure two fishtails at end with clear hair tie.
  • Pull pieces out of fishtail braid to create flyaways and a deconstructed look.
  • Wrap braids into a low bun and secure with bobby pins.
  • Continue to pull pieces out and loosen bun. Lock in the entire style with Aveda Air Control.
