Runway Hair Style: Top Knot With A Twist

I’ve talked to you guys recently about growing my hair out for my wedding in October, and about that awkward phase when your hair is in between long and short. I’ve been experimenting with different ways to do my hair that are both easy and chic – I do love a good sleek top knot, but I like to switch up my daily hairstyle from time to time. My hair is almost long enough to wear down on a regular basis again, but in the meantime I tried out this cute top knot look that I spotted on the runways at New York fashion week, tied up with a scarf! This look is super easy – just style a full, messy top knot and add the tie, which can be a neck scarf, a hankerchief, even a pocket square. The look makes me think of those chic Italian women that live near the coast and wear bright colors, espadrilles and red lipstick (at least they do in my head!) Read below for steps.

Supplies:

SScarf – I find it best to use one that is long rather than square, but if it’s square, make sure you fold it into a triangle and then over and over into a long, thin shape after that
Teasing comb
Texturizing spray – I used this foam and salt spray from Tresemmé
Hair tie
Hairpsray
Bobby pins

Steps:
1) On damp hair, comb a few pumps of a wave creating mousse or foam throughout your hair – I like this one from Tresemmé
2) Blow dry hair until it is 80% dry – create small sections and spray a sea salt spray into the sections, and twist around your fingers. Hold the twist in place and then blow dry until hair is completely dry. These two steps will create tons of volume that make the bun bigger and messier looking.
3) Tease your hair with a teasing comb once dry.
4) Gather your hair into a high ponytail by flipping your head over, and secure with a strong hair tie.
5) Twist the ponytail around until it creates a bun shape, and secure down with bobby pins.
6) Fold your scarf until you have a long twist, and then tie securely around the bun, finishing the knot at the front. Finish with hairspray.

Voilá!
