BEAUTIFUL KNOTS FOR SUMMER
Many girls like to have konts on summer, so today I introduce you 8 beautiful knots help you through the summer beautifully!
With a few minor tweaks, the hairstyle you wear to watch Netflix can be paired with an evening gown. First, make sure your hair is totally frizz-free. Then brush all your hair into a very high ponytail, and on the last wrap of the elastic, pull the ends only halfway through, creating a soft loop of hair about the size of an apple. So you don’t look like you just rolled off your couch, pin down either side of the loop so it becomes less floppy and more of a controlled chignon shape.
Bun and Bangs
If you’ve got bangs, then this look is as simple as blow-drying your hair smooth and pulling it up into a knobby topknot. If you don’t have bangs, then do what Kendall Jenner did: fake it with clip-in extensions. Choose a bang piece that matches your hair color (duh) and has a triangular base and three small, attached clips. At your next salon appointment, have your stylist wash and style the bangs so they move in the direction you want, as well as snip them to the right length and shape for your face shape. Before clipping them in, tease your roots, mist with hair spray, and snap in the piece.
Modern Ballerina Bun
To keep a ballerina-inspired bun from looking stuffy： Once your hair is blow-dried smooth, make a clean side part. Tease the hair at the crown and smooth down the top layer with a boar-bristle brush. Then brush all your hair behind your ears and into a ponytail at the nape of the neck, letting any shorter, face-framing pieces hang loose on the opposite side of the part. Then twist the ponytail and wrap it into a chignon. Slip in a few U-shaped pins and don’t worry if shorter layers start to poke out—that’s what keeps it from looking too prim and proper.
Hairstylist Odile Gilbert created this look at Jason Wu’s spring show without a single bobby pin or brush. “It’s a modern chignon, like the model did it herself,” she explained. “So we did it all with our fingers and elastics.” After prepping the hair with water and gobs of blow-dry cream, hairstylists raked everything back with their fingers and secured the hair in a messy bun with the ends sticking out. They took the ends, coiled them around the bun and wrapped an elastic around the whole thing. Finally, they twisted the bun clockwise and added a third elastic so that the knot was small and supertight.
Consider this the type-A version of the topknot. It’s neat, precise, and every single strand of hair is perfectly in place. The secret? Hair spray. Mist flexible-hold hair spray on a flat brush and glide it through the hair, then flip your head over and brush the underside. With your head still flipped upside down, gather your hair into a ponytail at the very top center of the head. Twist the ponytail around the base, tuck the ends under, and slide in a few U-shaped pins. Finish by misting a clean spooley brush with hair spray and skim it over stray pieces around the ears and neck so they lie flat.
It’s a fishtail, it’s a topknot, it’s a…really cool combination of the two. This style works best if you have long, thick hair. Blow-dry your hair smooth and brush it all into a high ponytail that hits right below the crown. Split the tail in two equal halves and twist and pin one half into a messy topknot. Run a styling cream over the second section and create a clean fishtail braid that runs all the way to the ends. Secure with a clear elastic and wrap it around the base of the knot, placing a bobby pin at one-inch intervals around the perimeter to keep it locked in place.
You’ve seen the side braidand the side ponytail, but let us—or rather hairstylist Adir Abergel and actress Amber Heard—introduce you to the side knot. To start, add some texture with a half-inch curling iron and spritz in some texturizing spray from roots to the midlength. Pull the hair into a high off-center ponytail and hide the elastic with a small piece of hair. Back-comb the ponytail, spritz it with hair spray, then twist the tail and direct it to the side of your head, securing it with a few bobby pins (the ends should fall by the nape of your neck). Then take a simple metal barrette and fasten it across the ends at eye level.
Selena Gomez’s low chignon strikes the right balance between neat and messy, elegant and youthful. To get it right, go easy on the products during your prep. Apply mousse (if your hair is fine) or an anti-frizz serum or cream (if your hair is thick or dry) to the layers underneath first, and then use what’s leftover on your hands up top. Once that’s done, back-comb the hair at the crown before gathering all your hair at the nape, leaving a few face-framing pieces hanging loose to curl, if you’d like. Twist the ponytail like a rope, wind it around the elastic, and pin it in place.
