Hairstyle How To: DIY Miu Miu’s Unstructured Topknot

The Paris Fashion Week Resort 2016 Backstage Beauty Report: Miu Miu’s Unstructured Topknot


Designer: Miu Miu

Lead Hair Stylist: Redken Global Creative Director Guido

The Scoop: The inspiration for the Miu Miu Resort show was the 80’s club kids and the hair was designed to have “an almost sweaty look…like the girls had been dancing all night in a hot night club,” said Guido. Whether you’re dancing all night or just sweating from the heat and humidity of summer, this unstructured topknot is the perfect hairstyle for when it’s too hot to let your hair down.

How To DIY Miu Miu’s Unstructured Topknot


  1. Apply 2 – 3 drops of Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine all over dry hair, focusing on the ends and pieces around the hairline
  2. Gather hair into a high ponytail and twist into a loose topknot
  3. Secure with an elastic, leaving the ends sticking out
  4. Use your fingers to pull out a few wispy strands around the hairline, sticking them to the forehead with a bit of water or additional Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine if desired
  5. Finish with a mist of Redken control addict 28 high control hairspray, focusing on the ends of the topknot that are sticking out to hold the shape
