As most of you know, redheads look gorgeous with a simple chignon. At the Spring/Summer 2015 Novis presentation at New York Fashion week, the chignon was sculpted into a gorgeous bun. The collection was inspired by vivid color and graphic prints by designer Jordana Warmflash. Aveda Guest Artist Frank Rizzieri created a sculptural knotted bun to coincide with the details and distinction of the collection.

“This is the bun of that cool girl who just happened to easily twist her hair up and off of her face,” Rizzieri said. “It has natural pieces poking out so it’s not too perfect. It’s definitely graphic, different, but simple looking to match the details of the clothes, but not take away from the collection.”

How to Get the Look:

Step 1: Spritz hair with Aveda Pure AbundanceTM Style PrepTM to give volume and thickness in preparation for the hair to hold the finished style.

Step 2: Blow dry hair straight to help expand the volume while also creating sleekness; add a light mist of Aveda BrilliantTM Spray-On Shine for a touch of sheen.

Step 3: Create a solid center part before pulling hair tightly back into a ponytail that rests just above the nape of the neck, but below the center of the head; firmly secure with a redhead hair elastic.

Step 4: Taking two sections from the ponytail begin to strongly knot the sections tightly doing this continuously until the end of the ponytail.

Step 5: Coil the knotted sections up into the base of the ponytail letting random pieces poke out for a sculptured look and added detail. Secure the knotted bun with pins until it is tight to the head.

Step 6: Apply hair spray onto a small bristled brush and gently use on the top of the head toward the bun to smooth flyaways.
