"The romanticism of a stormy spring meets mixed media," said Ann Yee of her Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Inspired by New York City's unstable weather pattern, the clothes featured malleable textured and clean lines. To coincide with the theme, Aveda Guest Artist Jon Reyman created a sleek style that morphs into a rhythm of fitful waves coming together briefly off center, only to expend into a fully ponytail.

"The super straight top that develops into rapid waves speaks to Yee's vision of that time of the year when an urban dweller is suddenly faced with a storm that can be forceful, moody and exhilarating," said Reyman.

GET THE LOOK:

Step 1: Create a strong side part on the left side of the head and divide hair into a left, right, and back section.

Step 2:Prep the sections with Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight and blow dry directing hair away from face. This will add the straightness needed in the front.

Step 3: Once straight, mist hair with Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray. Working horizontally from one side, wrap sections of hair around large U-pins in a figure-8 pattern. Secure each with a small clip.

Step 4: Hold each secure clipped section with a flat iron for 10 seconds to set shape. Once cool, gently release the pins and brush out hair with an Aveda Wooden Paddle Brush.

Step 5: Work Light Elements Texturizing Creme into the waves with hands carefully maintaining definition, while also smoothing down the top of hair at the crown.

Step 6: Pull the sides of the hair back to a meeting point that is just left of center, secure sections with a clear elastic. Take a bottom section of hair at the nape and wrap around the elastic and secure with a pin.

Step 7: Finished with Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray.
