How-To: The Under-Chin Side Knot

Macadamia Professional International Creative Director and celebrity stylist, Giannandrea, kicked off NYFW with a showstopping hairstyle at Nicholas K F/W’16 this morning. See below for the under-chin side knot step-by-step.


1. Starting with wet hair, apply one pump of Macadamia Professional Blow Dry Lotion from the mid-lengths to ends and blow-dry hair straight.

2. Use a flat iron on small sections to seal the straight hair.

3. Create a sharp center part on the crown only and brush hair down into two loose sections on each side of the head, in front of each shoulder.

4. Run a quarter-sized amount of Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment from mid-lengths to ends.

5. Take the hair section on the left side and gently place it across the neck to meet just below the right ear in a ponytail. Secure the ponytail with a hair tie.

6. Wrap an extension matching the hair color around the hair tie to achieve more length or volume if desired.

7. Twist the hair into a wrapped bun and let the end of the hair stick out 7 inches. Secure the bun with bobby-pins.

8. Spray Macadamia Professional Flex Hold Shaping Spray over all of the hair and smooth any flyaways.

9. Insert a distinctive hair piece of your choice and finish with a light mist of Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Dry Oil Micro Mist.
