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!

  • I remember the first time I met Ralph Lauren. I was working at Vogue.com in London, and was flown to Moscow (yes Moscow!!) for the launch of his flagship store there. The runway show was epic: a live orchestra played, and afterwards we drank frozen vodkas shots with pickles, and ate supper at the ambassador’s home under a hundred candelabras. We danced til the sun came up. Tonight, I’m getting a sneak peek at his @skyatlanticuk documentary, #VeryRalph, which I’ve been DYING to see, and it was incredible! Catch it tomorrow on @skyatlanticuk, or on demand any time. #ad
  • #ad Friendsgiving has become a very happy tradition for me. Living in LA, all us Brits had families far away so to celebrate the holiday we would gather to cook, eat, drink, play games, and laugh for hours. I was naturally always in charge of cocktails and this year I’m making the @ketelonebotanical Botanical Spritz. So easy to make and so delicious with no sugar and no carbs- just add club soda and fresh fruit to your favourite varietal in a wine glass! Can’t wait to bring this tradition back to England this year! #PeachandOrangeBlossom #KetelBotanical #BotanicalSpritz
  • I had so much fun shopping for Honor at @ilgufo_official today- and I got to chat to the Italian heritage brand’s elegant CEO @alessandrachiavelli ... watch it all on my stories. How are Italians just always so impeccably chic!? #ad #ilgufo_official
  • Today we walked to the town square and listened to the trumpets salute our fallen soldiers, we watched the helicopters fly overhead, and we listened to the choir sing. I wish Honor could have met her brave great-grandfathers, who fought in the RAF and the army, but I shall make sure I tell her all about them, and that every year we will proudly wear our poppies. #LestWeForget #RemembranceSunday
  • Literally got my claws into him 🤣

  • Writing down your dreams and goals is such a powerful way to start making them a reality - but when was the last time you took the time to do it? I have lots of plans for the year ahead (like creating our dream family home!) and @kikki.k dream journals are the perfect way to set the wheels in motion, inspired by @kristinakikkik and her book.
