How-To: Nordic Knot

To celebrate the start of New York Fashion Week, we're looking back on some of our favorite styles from past seasons.


Jonathan Simkhai’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection explored the soft balance achieved between intricate linear laces and delicate, streamlined construction. Simkhai’s girl is polished but not prim, a gypsy Goddess forging through the Arctic. “This look was inspired by the idea of a natural, windswept feel. We wanted to keep the front of the hair soft with some “frozen” pieces and have a Nordic knot down the back. The look is strong, yet not fussy, " says Thomas Osborn, TIGI US Creative Director.


1. Prep dry hair with CATWALK by TIGI Bodifying Spray and blow dry with fingers in a backwards and upwards motion

2. Next, using a flat iron, pull small sections of hair backwards at the crown for a “frozen” illusion

3. Then, rake hair backwards and create a knot at the nape of the neck, secure with an elastic. Create a second knot and secure with a clear elastic

4. Finish with CATWALK by TIGI Work It Hairspray and Camera Ready Shine Spray
