Rose Blonde and Vintage Waves

Aveda’s Sublime Spirit Collection for autumn and winter casts an eye back through the ages and emerges with looks that are informed by history and, at the same time, are completely fresh and modern. Here, for example, a completely on-trend rosy blonde hue puts a futuristic spin on vintage finger waves. The result is the perfect blend of old and new!

     Prep damp hair with thickening tonic and comb through. Blow-dry the hair with your fingers until 70 percent dry. Apply one pump of light elements™ smoothing fluid to the ends and blow-dry with a Mason Pearson brush until 100 percent dry. Create a side parting and spray lightly with brilliant™ damage control™. Blow-dry the parting in place. Beginning in the nape, curl 1-inch horizontal subsections from ends to roots with a medium-barrel curling iron, holding each curl for 20 seconds before clipping on base.

     In the side sections, perform a dry finger wave set, securing the waves with clips. Cool for 10 minutes and remove the clips. Brush through the back section with the tip of a Mason Pearson brush, and then brush through the sides with a wide-tooth comb or your fingers, making sure to maintain the shape

    Gather the ends of the hair into a ponytail and secure with a hair elastic at the nape. Using the ponytail as a base, roll it up into itself to create a faux-bob, and secure with bobby pins. Finish by refining the waves with the end of a pintail comb. Mist with air control™ light hold hair spray.
