First seen at Michael Kors for spring 2011, the double hair knot's relaxed elegance has made it a hit on the runway and on the street.

The trend was reignited last week at the Helen Cherry and Workshop for Marr Factory show.

Designed by Matthew Benns for Stephen Marr, this chic and beautifully dishevelled look will take you from casual daywear right through to a high fashion evening look, and best of all it's easy to do at home.


1 - Apply a gutsy styling lotion through your hair for texture and hold. Matthew used all-natural Australian brand O&M's Surf Bomb. You could also try Structure Beach Texture Spray, $24; or Wella Ocean Spritz Spray, $27.

2 - Sweep your hair back into a low ponytail, leaving a few soft wisps at the front.

3 - Split your ponytail into two pieces and tie them twice in a knot. Secure it tight with bobby pins and leave the tails free.

4 - Spritz with medium hold hairspray to hold. Spray some onto the knot for texture and loosen a few strands for a softer look. Matthew used O&M Original Queenie Spray.
