The New Knot Debuts at Paris Fashion Week


The classic topknot isn’t dead just yet (just see Lily Rose Depp’s front row appearance at Chanel for proof), but that hasn’t stopped designers from showcasing new takes on the trend for Spring 2016. From braided buns at Valentino to Rochas’s little loops, the best Paris Fashion Week hair is right here.

Low, loose knots at Rochas were a refreshing change from the ubiquitous topknots of models off duty.

Long loved by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and recently worn by celebrities and street style stars alike, the half-up bun returned at Agnes B.

Seemingly random knots at Moncler Gamme Rouge offered a way for those with updo aversions to wear the trend.

Tons of tiny twisted loops by Redken’s Guido Palau were a romantic and modern addition to the Alexander McQueen show.
