Redken global styling director Guido and our favourite backstage hair guru kicked off New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2013 with a loose chignon for the Rag & Bone show. This relaxed, nonchalant knot is so simple to recreate at home, yet it looks like you have spent hours in a salon. “It’s got a tomboy feeling, but it also has certain softness to it. Creating the low side part and then sweeping the hair over the forehead ultimately gives it a feminine feel,” says Guido.
Here’s how to get the look.
Apply Redken guts 10 $38 root volumizing foam to damp hair from roots to ends.
Create a deep, clean low side part.
Rough blow dry with fingers to create a very natural texture.
When fully dry, spritz on Redken powder refresh 01 RRP$ 36 dry shampoo throughout to add texture and a matte effect.
Drag hair together into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and secure with elastic.
Apply Redken quick tease 15 RRP$36 back coming finishing spray to the ponytail and twist into a loose knot, securing with pins and letting a the “wispy” ends come out.
Finally soften the whole look by pulling the hair up a bit at the crown, not too exaggerated but to add a little height.
