CHIARA BONI LA PETITE ROBE
SPRING 2016 NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
Happy Friday folks! Where has the week gone!? I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to the weekend. I had a long week of filming and I’m ready to relax.
Another NYFW has come and gone and I wasn’t so engrossed as I was in February. I went to one event and I’m sharing all the details! I went backstage with Aveda for Chiara Boni where I learned all about the hair and makeup inspiration. Sleek finger waves, feminine and natural hues graced the models and clothing racks. I got to chat with lead hair Jon Reyman and lead makeup Janell Geason on their techniques. Here are the steps to achieving the same looks sported on the models!
The collection was inspired by blooming flowers in a secret garden and to reflect the theme lead hairstylist Jon Reyman created gorgeous layers of textured hair that framed the stunning faces of the models with sleek modern finger waves.
Step 1: Prep hair with a liberal misting of Aveda Thickening Tonic and blow dry hair for texture.
Step 2: With hair parted down the center, apply a generous amount of Aveda Brilliant™ Retexturizing Gel to the top half of head to create the wet appearance.
Step 3: On the right side, begin forming a traditional finger wave from the top of the part going down to the back of the ear. Set each waved section with a clip. Repeat on the left side.
PRO TIP: Place a playing card under each clip to avoid ridging on the hair.
Step 5: With the top drying, begin to wrap hair that is hanging loose around a 3⁄4” barrel curling rod.
Step 6: Use a wide-tooth comb to pull out the freshly set curls for a flowing loose wave.
Step 7: Apply new Aveda Shampure™ Dry Shampoo (Available November 1, 2015) on the back for added texture and remove the cap and clips. Let the finger waves hang naturally.

Step 2: Lightly apply Petal Essence™ Single Eye Color in Opal on top lash line.

Step 5: With a blush brush apply Petal Essence™ Face Accents in Apricot Whisper along the cheekbones.
Step 6: Add a touch of Petal Essence™ Face Accents Rose Blossom to the apples of the cheeks.
Step 7: Line the lips with Nourish-mint™ Lip Liner in Purple Sage and blend edges inwards.
Step 8: Fill in lips with Nourish-mint™ Smoothing Lip Color in Wild Fuchsia with brush.
