Our hair plays a very important role in affecting our confidence, which is also why people dread “bad hair day”. Getting the right hairstyle and choosing the right hair care is more important than you think it is.
I switched my entire hair care range to Aveda’s products three months ago, initially it was to try out for a review but I find that it slowly improves my dry and tangled hair issues. I have less tangled hair when I use Aveda’s products.
AVEDA specializes in hair care and they have a wide range to tackle different hair problems. Apart from that, AVEDA has also made styling much easier. I do not even need a tong to curl my hair. The hairstyle created in this post is simply by using Aveda’s Be Curly range. After wash I apply a small amount on my damp hair, twirl my hair with my fingers and blow dry. I did a review on it a month ago (here). A really fast and simple way to get your hair done for the day~
This Season, AVEDA introduces a limited edition hair collection for autumn/winter 2014 created exclusively for Asian women by Aveda’s hair care experts from Japan to create seductively soft and feminine looks.
Speaking about feminine and soft looks, the one person that I always think has perfect doll hair is none other than Angelababy. Her hair is always so perfect like as if she walked out from a fairytale.
No matter what kind of outfits she’s wearing, she’s able to pull it off with her pretty locks.
With Aveda’s new hairstyle and colour range, achieving fairytale like hair is made possible!
Rie Hirabayashi, Aveda’s Editorial Artist for Haircutting and Styling collaborated with Yuji Okawa, Master Colorist, Aveda Japan to create three new looks specifically for the modern, trendsetting Asian woman. Their combined vision of reveals refined color designs with a touch of soft, sweet, romantic taste. The cuteness and femininity is balanced by a cool and sophisticated touch, which gives the looks more personality. With Aveda’s 93% naturally derived hair color, the looks give guests easy to wear color, conditioning, and shine.
Long Style with Pearl Beige
Give dimensional elegance and shine to a beautiful pearl beige long style. Brightened highlights inserted in a gradation towards the hair ends add uniqueness to the look, creating a different, naturally glamorous feel with every movement you make.
Medium Style with Chocolate Brown
Side bangs to the cheeks and soft, sensitive curls create a perfect mix of sweetness and maturity to this medium bob style.
Short Bob with Cinnamon Orange
This inspiring lip line bob, with a fluffy round silhouette, starts with smooth hair. Glimpses of purple within the bright and refined cinnamon orange gives the look nuance, rendering a stylish gradation. The combination of sweetness and coolness creates a somewhat ennui edge.
For the color, Yuji’s concept was to create a high-fashion look while achieving friendly, everyday-wear balance. The customized colors allow women to complement their hair with their skin tone and eye color. Full Spectrum DeepTM also gives Asian women the shine and conditioning that they love.
“I used pink and purple tones in the follow to give the hair a pearly shine, along with gradual highlights for customization,” says Yuji Okawa, Master Colorist, Aveda Japan. “This technique creates a young, fresh and healthy look – perfect for what Asian women want.”
The Cutting and Styling
Pulling from the perm trend in Asian countries, Rie set out to create looks full of texture and used a blow dryer instead of air-drying. Rie’s approach gives women the soft, young look they seek, while still looking fresh and refined.
“I created a look that is cute and cool for an independent woman with a little bit of sexy spice,” says Rie Hirabayashi, Aveda’s Editorial Artist for Haircutting and Styling. “Natural brands are very popular now and Aveda has established itself as the leader in the industry.”
As a top stylist, Rie has extensive experience working on top editorial photo shoots, including Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, hair shows, fashion catalogs and music videos. She has also appeared at the Asian Beauty Congress as a guest judge.
