Add natural style to short hair and achieve a tousled, textured look with Aveda’s Global Creative Director, Antoinette Beenders.

Before You Start


First, use Aveda Color Conserve™ Shampoo & Conditioner to wash and condition hair. Color Conserve products help protect and preserve color-treated hair. (Aveda offers other shampooing and conditioning products if you have different needs.)

Step 1: Prep


Spray Brilliant™ Damage Control™ and comb it through. This protects hair from thermal damage and reduces breakage.

Step 2: Style


Apply Phomollient™ Styling Foam, which provides weightless volume with light hold, and comb it through.

Add a nozzle attachment to your blow dryer and set to high heat, high speed. Dry until hair is about 60% dry.

Next, finger dry by clamping hair between your fingers and blow drying, pulling it in one direction. Repeat in the opposite direction. Do this all over: back, sides and front.


Step 3: Finish


When hair is completely dry, finish by emulsifying Control Paste™ in your hand. It adds texture with pliable hold. Slide fingers through hair up each side of the head, pulling the hair into a mohawk shape. Then tease and arrange hair as desired.
