Recently, MODERN Facebook fan Amy Schaming got together with a team to create this Hepburn magic.

To begin, prep the hair with Aveda Brilliant medium hold hairspray. Curl the entire head with a 3/4-inch curling iron.

Next, spray each section lightly with Aveda Control Force. Allow curls to set and then brush hair to smooth.

Make two high small ponytails on the high apex. Braid both pony tails, then wrap braids around base. This is to establish/create height at the base. click image to zoom

Use Aveda Antihumectant pomade and rake through curls. Beginning at first braid, pin the loose curls into the section until the braids are covered.

Continue to build height on the top of the apex with remaining hair. Use smoothing iron to create side swoop bang, and set the entire head with Aveda Control force.
