Runway Hair: Maison Martin Margiela

Fashion month is over… until next time… As always it’s been a magical thing to follow, not just for the clothes, the shows and the front rows, but also behind the scenes, out front on the street – and of course the hair and makeup! We had a series of emails come our way last week from Milan and Paris via Redken, outlining some of the beautiful hair styling that went down and how the looks were created. A lot of them were surprisingly simple ideas (perfectly executed of course) – which we love at Undone – so we selected a few of our favourites we thought could be most easily recreated at home… Have fun, and happy hair!


“There is something quite English and traditional about the Margiela style this season. The volume at the side and the droopiness of the knot give a more mature feeling to the overall hairstyle. Needless to say, the look is certainly not a modern or sporty take on a knot. One can really envision a beautiful older woman wearing this hairstyle at her English country estate.”

– Guido Paulo, Redken Creative Consultant

Create the look:
Apply Guts 10 Root Targeted Volume Spray foam to damp hair. Blowdry with a natural bristle brush until hair is 80 percent dry. Apply a dime to nickel size (depending on length) of Flex Shape Factor 22 and Flex Mess Around 10 (both available in New Zealand in April) into palm of hand and mix together. Distribute product evenly throughout the hair. Finish blowdrying hair until completely dry. Create a left side part. Divide hair into two sections in the back and twist hair inwards and tie into a loose knot. Thread elastic through the knot a few times as if you’re sewing a button onto something, and tie elastic once to secure knot. Finish with Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray.
