The Glam Knot

For this fall hairstyle tutorial, I wanted to do a modern take on the classic bun.  I was inspired by designer Jenny Packham's show last season at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York, which featured these glamourous "undone" knots.  It's simple enough for everyday but would also be great for an evening out - just add a smokey eye and statement earring!  The key to making it look effortless is keeping it loose and allowing face framing pieces to fall out - you want to create a slightly undone feel.  Here's the products you will need to get started:

Step by step instructions to recreate this style:

1) Apply TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Mousse to prep the hair and give it extra volume & blow-dry hair straight.
2) Back comb hair starting at the crown, focusing around the hairline to create fullness.
3) Lightly mist with TRESemmé TRES Two Ultra Fine Mist Hair Spray to lock in the volume and style.
4) Pull hair back into a low ponytail & secure with a clear elastic.  Loosely twist the ponytail & wrap around into a bun, anchoring with bobby pins to hold in place.
5) Apply TRESemmé Smooth and Silky Anti- Frizz Secret Smoothing Crème to the top & back of hair to create an undone & piecey texture, allowing a few face-framing pieces to fall out.
6) Finished product.

What I'm wearing:

Zara heels (similar here or here), Mango clutch (similar here or here), c/o Stella & Dot earrings
c/o WalMart bracelet, Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable (Cherish)
