In September of 2019 I had the opportunity to work at New York Fashion Week on Aveda's Styling Team. Our team was led by Jon Reyman, a celebrity hair stylist and salon owner with 8 locations nationwide. At each show I was teamed with a network of Aveda Artists that came from all over the world for the opportunity. Throughout the week I worked backstage creating classic runway styles and incorporating this seasons newest trends.
Hyundai collaborated with Zero x Maria Cornejo reusing Hyundai Transys car seats to create a 15 piece capsule collection. This style embraces natural texture, I used Pure Abundance Style Prep in Margot's hair to softly tie back into a low pony with tendrils falling around the face.
The Academy of Art University presentation showcased collections by graduates of the school. This look utilized Control Force (a lot), Spray On-Shine, and Liquid Pomade to enhance natural texture or add a super smooth gloss to the hair.
Creating these styles displayed the versatility of the products that we worked with and the intricacy of intentional dishevelment. This experience gave me a whole new outlook on upstyling hair and the endless possibilities of a can of hairspray. Being a part of this season's Fashion Week taught me so many things, and I can't wait to bring everything I've learned behind the chair!
