Runway to red carpet: How to twist a top-notch bun

Runway to red carpet: How to twist a top-notch bun

It was a bun fight backstage this season, with hair stylists working models hair into a frenzy to secure the coolest up-do.

Our vote for top of the knots? The twisted numbers sported by the girls at Salvatore Ferragamo and Issey Miyake. The key to pulling off this polished bun is to slick your hair back first before working the twist, no loose stragglers here please.

Brit beauty Kate Beckinsale works the bendy bun to perfection but ups the ante for the red carpet with a hair jewel.

Get the look:

To create the look hair pro Adam Reed suggests blow-drying hair smooth, directing your hair towards the nape, and securing it with a Blax snag-free band.

Then, his trick for a top-notch twist? "Twist your ponytail tightly from the roots to the ends, allowing your hair to curl and tuck into itself before securing it with matt hair grips," explains Reed.

Smooth any loose hairs with Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer before adding your accessory.
