This Easy Messy Half-Knot Takes 10 Mins!

Those who know me know that I’m not the greatest at doing my own hair. I can do my makeup well, but I sometimes struggle to get that perfect everyday curl look, or to do certain up-do’s. Thankfully, I work with so many talented hair and makeup artists that over the years, I’ve picked up a few things here and there that can save me in a pinch. While it might not be picture perfect all the time, I’ve mastered how to do a quick wavy style to revive my hair in the mornings, a killer side braid, and even this cool messy half-knot bun style that the lovely ladies over at Priv taught me recently.

This hairstyle is perfect for bad/dirty hair days, or even if you just want to switch up your usual bun style for something equally as easy and cute. And it takes less than 10 minutes! You’ll just need a curling iron or wand, hair ties, bobby pins and hairspray.

First, give yourself a part (I think in the middle works best for this style, but wherever you prefer). Next, section off the top half of your hair. I like to take my two index fingers and start just above my ear, and bring them together to meet in the back. Clip up this piece of hair to get it out of the way. Next, take your curling wand and curl the bottom section. You want this to have an easy, undone look, so don’t worry about being perfect. Take larger, horizontal sections, and just give them a quick few seconds of heat. Once you finish that, unclip the top section of your hair, and twirl it behind your head in a loose bun. Secure it with a hairtie, and pin down any loose strands. Finally, yank out some strands around your face, give those a quick curl, and give everything a light spritz of hairspray. And voilá! What do you guys think?

  • 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 🤣
True romance ♥️
Love you babes @mackenziehunkin
  • 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.
