Avon Advance Techniques lead stylist, Allen Ruiz, together with designer Charlotte Ronson, created this chic ballerina hair style for the Spring 2010 show at New York Fashion Week.

Inspiration for the Look: The look mirrors the Charlotte Ronson collection, which is inspired by a remake of 80’s style. The hair was created to evoke a fresh, young wispy vision and a “just walked out of dance class at Julliard” look to play off Charlotte's fabrics and bold designs.

Special thank you to stylist, Allen Ruiz, for creating these step-by-step tips for this unique look!

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 10-20 Minutes

Here's How:

  1. Prep the hair from root to tip with Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray to enhance natural shine and create volume.
  2. Using the Advance Techniques Paddle Brush and hair dryer, distribute the Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray by sectioning off the hair and blow-drying to ensure that there is a natural, soft texture.
  3. Next, gather the hair tight to form a ponytail at the back crown of the head and secure with a ponytail holder keeping all sides flat.
  4. Holding hair at the base of the ponytail, twist the hair firmly in one direction to form a kink in to a spiral. Secure with bobby pins.
  5. On the sides, using the little hairs “muse” the wispy hairs to play up the natural texture.
  6. Lightly spray Advance Techniques Hair Spray to complete the style and hold in place.
