Backstage at Charlotte Ronson with the Avon Hair Team

Now it is time for a hair trends post. From what I saw, hair pulled back from the face seemed to be big on the runway this year. The following look was created by lead Avon hair stylist Allen Ruiz, for the Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010 New York Fashion Week show.

The inspiration for the look was a remake of 80’s style. Allen created the fresh, young wispy look, that mirrors Charlotte Ronson’s collection, and the look gives off the “just walked out of dance class at Julliard” vibe.

Here are the reasons why Allen loves this look:

Spring is all about wearing your hair up and away from your face.

Radiate confidence and positive energy by styling your bun so it looks finished, yet slightly disheveled.

Wearing your hair up in a bun creates a youthful, fresh look that is easy-to-achieve!

The reason I love it is because its quick, easy, and polished. You look sophisticated and youthful at the same time, without trying too hard.

Here is how you can re-create the look:

Step 1: Prep the hair from root to tip with Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray to enhance natural shine and create volume.

Step 2: Using the Advance Techniques Paddle Brush and hair dryer, distribute the Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray by sectioning off the hair and blow-drying to ensure that there is a natural, soft texture.

Step 3: Next, gather the hair tight to form a ponytail at the back crown of the head and secure with a ponytail holder keeping all sides flat.

Step 4: Holding hair at the base of the ponytail, twist the hair firmly in one direction to form a kink in to a spiral. Secure with bobby pins.

Step 5: On the sides, using the little hairs “muse” the wispy hairs to play up the natural texture.

Step 6: Lightly spray Advance Techniques Hair Spray to complete the style and hold in place.
All of the products mentioned are available on the Avon website.

How do you feel about the ballerina bun?
