Cool-Girl Texture Knot

Looking for the perfect “I barely tried but it looks perfect” hair style? This texture knot, created by Aveda Guest Artist Jon Reyman for designer Simon Miller’s runway show for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, may be the perfect find. “I created an easily achievable and interesting look with natural texture,” Reyman noted, adding that style is natural and wearable. He created the knot to appear tussled and messy, but still with a bit of architecture and design to appear as a cool girl style. Your turn!

How to Get the Look

Step 2: Add a layer of Pure Abundance Style Prep and continue to blow-dry. This will give hair added texture.

Step 3: After hair is dry, create soft movement by first applying Air Control Hair Spray and then using a flat iron to wave the hair.

Step 4: Create a messy center part. Taking a right front section of hair, pull behind ear, but still keeping the section separated, from the back of the hair. Do the same with the left side front section.

 

Step 5: Pulling from the back of the hair, take a 1 to 2 inch section of hair, based off the thickness of hair. Braid this section about 2 inches long, and secure with an elastic band.

 

Step 6: Collect remaining hair and pull back, secure with elastic band below the hairline.

 

Step 7: Tie front section in a knot over the braid. Pin the knot secure then manipulate it to give a more natural look.

 

Step 8: Finish with Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil for a slight shine, and set with Air Control Hair Spray.
