The Look:
The look is Eva Peron meets Juliet Lewis; giving the ’40s a more a modern feel and shape.

• Step 2: Create a high pony tail right above the right ear and secure in place with an elastic.

• Step 3: Divide pony in half and roll each section around a “rat” (small hair sponge), creating a cylinder-like shape. Hold in place with pins and spray with Air Control Hair Spray.

• Step 4: Repeat with other section of pony tail, creating a bow-like shape.

• Step 5: Apply a small amount of Aveda Light Elements Defining Whip throughout remaining section of hair on other side of the head. Spray with Air Control Hair Spray before wrapping hair down and around the back of the head along the hair line, and up around the base of the pony tail. Secure with pins throughout to keep in place.
