How To Create A Retro Updo with Aveda Control Force Hair Spray


Control Force is Aveda’s firm hold aerosol spray and the key styling need for both professional stylists and for styling at home. Control Force is a firm hold aerosol hair spray with organically-derived flax seed, marshmallow root and aloe. It provides all-day firm hold, control and 24 hour humidity defence with a natural, healthy looking shine. This fast drying, firm hold ‘finishing spray’ is the perfect compliment to Aveda's successful Air Control (medium hold) ‘working’ aerosol hair spray.

  • Control Force and Air Control have a net-zero impact on the Earth’s climate through Aveda’s funding of renewable energy.
  • The corn derived humectant zemea, provides flexibility and helps prevent flaking.
  • Contains rice bran, which is a natural UV protectant.

Coiled updos are the rage in hair styling for Spring | Summer 2012. Here is how Aveda Lead Hair Stylist Paul Hanlon creates this style:

"Give hair some grip by prepping with Aveda Volumizing Tonic and blowdrying away from the face with a round brush. Smooth with a fine-toothed comb and a mist of Aveda Air Control Hair Spray. Twist both sides of the hair from just above the ear, working your way to the back of the head along the parietal ridge. Clip hair at the back of the head and either twist into a bun or incorporate the ends of each twist into the roll on the opposite side of the head.  Smooth with a fine-toothed comb, using Aveda Air Control Hair Spray to eliminate wisps.  Finish with Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine."
