Karolina K’s Pretzel Twist Chignon


Model, Karolina Kurkova, took to her Instagram account to unveil her self-coined updo, the “KK pretzel twist,” for the Polo Ralph Lauren 4D event in Central Park, New York, on Monday evening.

With her name emblazoned on the back of her Polo shirt, Kurkova’s hair was whisked up into an undone chignon by hairstylist, Bryce Scarlet, fora sporty yet chic vibe.


How to get the look:

Spritz a volumizing mousse, comb through wet hair, and blow dry your hair straight.

Add extra volume to the roots with a little backcombing and sweep you hair back and up into a ponytail in line with your ears. Do not fasten with an elastic, just twist the hair clockwise with your forefinger. At the top of your head, tuck away the ends of your hair and secure the chignon on the left side with a series of bobby pins that match your hair color. Complete the look with a fine misting of hairspray but don’t smooth the hair down as the flyaways only add to the effortless charm.
