Pull your hair into this fun twist and spice up any look with a graphic scarf!
We’ve connected with Nicholas Penna, Jr., owner and lead stylist of SalonCapri in Boston, who assisted the Kérastase team in styling models’ hair for New York Fashion Week. Here are his step-by-step instructions for transforming your own locks!
1. Apply a volumizing mousse like L’Oréal Professionnel Expansion Body Activating Mousse to damp hair and blow dry, flipping your head upside down for some extra volume. Don’t worry about a part, because you don’t need one for this look!
2. Brush your hair away from your face and tie a cute folded scarf (about one to two inches or so in width) around your head, leaving some space between the scarf and your hairline. The knot should be a little off to the side for a more casual, “I-just-threw-my-hair-up-and-left” look.
3. Gather your hair just above the scarf and twist it in, just like you would for a French twist. Here’s the beauty of this look though: it’s totally customizable based on your hair length, thickness and texture, as seen on the runway where no two models’ styles were alike. Do a classic French twist, wrap long ends around into more of a knot—let your strands dictate the final product.
4. Pin using hairpins that match your hair color. Spray your twist/knot/artwork with a medium-hold hairspray like Kérastase Double Force Controle Ultime spray.
