3 artist-approved trends to try


From sitting in the salon chair to keeping your cut looking its best at home, our global Aveda Artists have all the tools, tips and tricks that you’ll need for trying and maintaining these cool fall looks.


Perfect for 3A to 4C hair, this look adds dimension, volume and bounce to your curls and coils. Aveda Texture Team Artist Austin Call executes this style by meticulously sectioning off hair before styling curls and coils in various lengths. To deeply hydrate your hair, lock in shine and keep your cut looking salon fresh, try adding nutriplenish daily moisturizing treatment and nutriplenish curl gelée to your daily hair care routine.



#2: 70s SHAG

This effortlessly cool cut combines retro chic with modern edge, framing your face with various layers. Aveda Senior Vice President of Professional Global Artistry Antoinette Beenders makes a point to volumize and thicken when approaching this layered look, using invati advanced exfoliating shampoo and thickening conditioner as wash day essentials. For thicker, fuller hair while styling your edgy look at home, try invati advanced thickening foam.




For a bold approach, try transforming your look with straight-across bangs tailored to your face shape. The right cut is up to you and your stylist—for example, soft, wispy bangs contrast sharper jawlines, while dramatic bangs flatter oval faces. When styling your bangs at home, Aveda Global Artistic Director Ricardo Dinis recommends using smooth infusion style-prep smoother to help control frizz, shampowder dry shampoo to add instant volume and texture and air control light hold hair spray to lock in flexible, lasting hold.
