Gigi Hadid's Twisted Top Knot Is A Fresh Take On An Off-Duty Classic
It's off to the races for New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020, which means the sidewalks of Manhattan are filled with models, photographers, and street style aficionados for the bi-annual marathon of shows. Aside from fresh garments and experimental beauty seen on the runway each year, VIP parties are filled with industry insiders who show off their own personal style for the season ahead. Gigi and Bella Hadid stepped out to support their big sister, Alana Hadid's latest launch for La Detresse on Thurs., and Gigi Hadid's twisted top knot put a polished spin on one of the model's favorite off-duty hairstyles.
Demonstrating a fall-ready styling technique for black bike shorts, the 24-year-old teamed a La Detresse oversized sweatshirt with a Louis Vuitton crossbody bag and PVC pumps. Donning a fire-engine red lipstick, diamond hoops and a single lemon-drop earring, Hadid was serving major face for the family affair — and the chic updo was a refined addition to the offbeat outfit.
Slicked down and parted down the middle, Hadid's strands were twisted into a masterfully sculpted bun right at the crown of her head. Resembling a traditional top knot at first glance, the hairstyle got extra interesting when pictured from the back and side. Instead of twisting into a basic donut shape, Hadid's ends were looped through the bun and laid down in the back, brushing the nape of her neck — an unconventional detail that lent an avant garde feel to the otherwise classic look.
As proven by the supermodel's well-balanced look, spending a few extra moments to up the ante in the hair department will take a chilled-out look from 0 to 100 real quick. If you're up for the challenge and want to give this look a whirl, start by adding a few key products to your cart.
