How to Get the New-season SS18 Runway Look

David Jones collections launch SS18 hair and makeup looks

The beauty look for the new-season SS18 David Jones Collection was inspired by the clashing colours and textures of springtime. Recreate the look at home with these hair and make-up step-by-steps, including easy-to-follow video and information on the exact products our make-up artists and hair experts have used. 

Simple and feminine 

Envisioned by Aveda’s Creative Director for David Jones, Terri Robertson-Kirkwood, the simply styled hair for the David Jones SS18 Collections Launch took its influence from the first hint of spring, bringing a fresh energy and a promise of possibility to the show. 

This look is all about deep conditioned, beautiful, healthy hair. We are seeing a trend for hair that is simplistic, as well as a desire for visually healthy and shiny hair.

1. Prep using a coin-size amount of Aveda’s Daily Hair Repair. This leave-in treatment will instantly repair and protect hair from heat styling. Run the product through mid-lengths and ends.

2. Spritz damp hair with Aveda's Thickening Tonic for finer hair to create a fuller style, or use Aveda's Volumising Tonic on all other hair types to help build body and add shine.

3. Style with 2-3 pumps of Aveda's Phomollient Styling Foam and distribute evenly. This will create weightless body and volume for your blow dry.

4. Using a a paddle brush, blow-dry the hair away from the face.

Pro tip
Choose a slow-speed with high heat to give more control and help you create a smooth blow-dry with less flyaways.

5. Take a section from the front hairline to the crown and hold (about 5cm wide), while leaving out the first centimetre across the hairline. Spray the section you are holding with Aveda's Control Force Hairspray until the hair is damp.

6. Brush through hair spray and lay flat on top of head, then secure with a section clip. Take remaining hair at hairline and spray with Aveda's Control Force Hairspray and twist, then secure with the same clip.

7. Tuck remaining hair behind ears and brush to smooth hair down at the back. Use a pea-size amount of Aveda's Split End Repair to the ends of your hair to add extra polish, binding any split ends back together for healthy, touchable hair. Once dry, gently remove the clip. The strong hold hairspray will keep your twist in place.

8. Finish by spritzing the entire style with Aveda's Sun Care Hair Veil to add sun protection and extra shine to the hair.

Fresh and bright

Get in on the spring beauty trend and focus on a pretty yet vibrant look that conveys both ease and elegance. 

Victoria Baron, Make-Up director for the David Jones SS18 Collections Launch, created the look for the launch with natural flushes of earthy bronze on the cheeks and eyes, free and naturally-shaped brows, and lifted and defined lashes. A bold colour palette for lips took inspiration from wildflowers, featuring pink, red, coral and mauve tones.

There’s a huge focus on skin health and preparation for a fresh, hydrated and youthfully luminous complexion.
