Kat (whose hair is featured above) is the story of internships gone right. The proof that when you hustle and make yourself invaluable, your boss will keep you around no matter what. She’s my go-to gal on styling jobs and has been for some time and now she helps out here with editing on the blog as well. She’s also a super talented costume designer and stylist in her own right and, as if that wasn’t enough, she was blessed by the hair gods, so she is now our resident head of hair when we need to do a tutorial. In keeping with our effortless chic mantra, we decided to do a few guides to easy, effortless hair when your short on time, beginning with this double knotted pony tail. I like it because it’s edgy and unexpected, but still feels fresh and pulled together. Here’s how to get the look:
This is a great style for second day hair, especially if you have fine hair because it will stay a lot easier and has more texture. If you need, begin by adding a little texture with product, (like Living Proof’s Instant Texture Mist).
First start with hair down and create a middle part, as if you’re going to (god forbid) create two pigtails. Next literally tie the hair on a knot like you would when tying your shoe, then instead of doing a bow, just get the 2 strands from the first knot and do the same knot. Essentially your tying your hair into a double knot.
Once the knot is in place, secure any loose strands as well as the bulk of the knot with bobbi pins and spray with a flex hold hairspray.
Voila! Here’s to the new take on a low pony for the inner cool girl you know you are!
