Double Knot It

Sometimes, I like to try and do new things with my hair that steer me away from my everyday (and sometimes boring) un-brushed wave look. It doesn't happen very often but I'm loving this look that was on the runway for Michael Kors' S/S 2011 collection.

Here's the "how to" get the double hair knot look:
  1. First, spritz the hair all over with a sea-salt spray (Orlando Pita used Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray)
  2. Next, scrunch the hair into bunches while drying to add waves and texture
  3. Pull a thick section of hair out at the front, sweeping it into a deep side part
  4. Finally, take back two sections of hair and tie into a knot - then again into a double knot
For a take on the style that is suited to autumn / fall or winter, play down the beachy-ness by making the hair smoother and a little less textured. Try replacing the sea-spray with a volumizer and keeping the hair in place with a little hairspray.

I love any hair style that looks this good and can let me sleep for an extra 5 minutes in the morning :)

I would love love to be able to pull this off...I'm going to give it a try. Hoping my lid's long enough!
