Sunday Tutorial–Numero Uno!

Being a cosmetology student, I am constantly scouring YouTube for different tutorials on hair and makeup. It’s a wonderful tool that many artists use to showcase different looks and techniques. It’s great for the consumer because it explains and demonstrates how to execute a look. It also has the benefit of watching as many times as you need to make sure that you get it down pat. Every Sunday I’d like to showcase a video that I love and that can be tried in the upcoming week!

This week’s video comes from Aveda, and it showcases Aveda’s Control Force Hairspray ($26). Control Force is a firm hold hairspray that doesn’t flake and has 24-hour humidity defense–perfect for summer! I love this video because it shows 7 different looks that can be created. They also used an entire can on this model and they were still able to brush and recreate without it getting flaky or dull. Way to go Aveda!!
