Give your weekend top knot – whether it’s to the beach or out for a cocktail – a little spice, by adding this fun, sexy little plait. It’s all in the attention to detail when it comes to freshening up  this It Girl hair style!

Oh Rats; Give a little extra love and attention to your top knot this weekend and section out a 2-3 inch piece at the nape of your neck to make this chic nod to the 90’s rat’s tale. After blow drying hair with O&M Surf Bomb to give hair a light-fluffy texture, pull the hair high up on the top of your head and twist into a neat little bun.

Backcomb the 2-3 inch section of hair you pulled out earlier, from roots to ends, before brushing out again. This technique will help create a light-fluffy texture in your plait. Once you are happy with the texture, plait loosely from roots to ends, before securing with a Lady Jayne Clear Elastic. Start loosening and pulling at the plait to give a slightly dishevelled, lived-in look. Tip, For those that are not daring enough to wear the plait out, tuck it up the back of the bun. It will give such a beautiful, subtle detail to what can be NOT such a pretty part of the top knot!
