Cool Girl Textured Knot

Here’s a new twist on a classic ponytail. This textured knot from Aveda Guest Artist Jon Reyman is boho chic with lots of playful texture. “The style is natural and wearable with lots of tousled texture,” said Jon. He wanted the knot to appear messy, but still with a bit of architecture and design to appear as a cool girl style. “I created an easily achievable and interesting look with natural texture that would simply complement Simon Miller’s denim collection.”

    Create a messy center part. Taking a right front section of hair, pull behind ear, but still keeping the section separated, from the back of the hair. Do the same with the left, side front section. Pulling from the back of the hair, take a 1- to 2-inch section of hair, depending on the thickness of the hair, and braid this section about 2 inches long, and secure with an elastic band.

    Collect the remaining hair and pull it back, then secure it with an elastic band below the hairline. Tie the front section in a knot over the braid. Pin the knot secure, then manipulate it to give it a more natural look.
