The look: Tousled knotThe beachy waves of summer have found their fall, more polished sister in the form of a tousled loose bun, like the one seen here on Shenae Grimes. So is this the right look for you? According to Papanikolas, this "loose chignon works great when you have a heavy side-swept bang." So if you do, we suggest making this your new go-to style.
Styling tips: Working with dry hair, "leave out a triangular section of the bangs and curl [it] away from the face with a curling iron," says Papanikolas. Pin it aside for now and then secure hair into a ponytail and swoop it into a knot shape. Secure with bobby pins. Let down the face-framing section, then spritz your style with flexible-hold hairspray (try Pantene Pro-V Style Sheer Volume Flexible Hold Hair Spray, $7.95) so your looks lasts "without looking stiff," says Papanikolas.
