While not everyone will want to look "like you've pulled a sweater over your head," this is a fun edgy style for days when you want to get creative. Frank Rizzieri and Kevin Ryan for Aveda share how to get this look from the Richard Chai show at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week Fall 2012:


1. Section hair from ear to ear at the flat of your crown, securing the bottom half with a clip.
2. Spray the top section from root to midshaft with a generous amount of Aveda Volumizing Tonic, $18.50.
3. Blow dry your top layer of hair with a fine-toothed comb or a Mason Pearson brush, creating lift at the root, up and away from your face and hairline.
4. Work Aveda Men Pure-Formance Grooming Clay, $22, into your hair from root to mid-length with a Mason Pearson brush. Hair should be slightly textured throughout -- use Aveda Air Control Hair Spray, $24, or Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion, $23, to add texture, if needed.
5. Follow with a quarter-sized dollop of Aveda Brilliant Humectant Pomade, $19, emulsified in your hands and raked in, using fingers to comb through.
6. Comb hair back and away from face with a deep side part on the left. Secure with clips and let set for a few minutes.
7. Using a fine-toothed comb, reverse the style by combing forward for a tousled, random finish. Saturate the hair at the sides of your face with Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine, $24, and comb backwards. Then run fingers through for added texture over your ear.
