We are in the midst of a major heat wave here in New York. I’m talking AC on, iced tea on tap, “don’t leave the house unless you need to” kind of hot. I’ve had a few summer-friendly styles on repeat in order to stay cool and still feel remotely put-together. One combination I’ve been loving is the low knotted bun and oversized sunglasses duo. It gives me the best off-duty model vibes while keeping my hair up and off my neck. Win-win, right?
Low Knotted Bun: Summer's Chicest Trend
Whether you wear it slicked back or loose around your face, the low knotted bun has all the French girl vibes we love in the summer. Simple, efficient and endlessly chic. If you want to go the slicked-back route, pump a bit of TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum into your hands and run your fingers through the length of your hair. This will make your low knotted bun super sleek and neat.
Whether you add product or just sweep your hair up into a low knotted bun, don’t forget to add a pair of sunglasses. The addition of some oversized shades is essential in taking this look into that high-fashion realm. Sunglasses are also one of those rare accessories that serve a function, too. When the weather is this hot, you don’t want to be carrying around anything you don’t absolutely need.
The low knotted bun also serves as the perfect blank canvas for trendy hair accessories. A hair bow, a sparkly headband, or a ribbon tied neatly around your hair tie all complement this style perfectly.
