The Twist-Knot Bun is a trending hairstyle that’s all over TikTok and Instagram, thanks to celebrities, like Bella Hadid and Olivia Rodrigo, who keep rocking this look! This look is a nod to the iconic hairstyles worn by celebrities and models from the late ‘90s and early 2000s.
You can see that the hair is neatly slicked back to the center of your crown, then twisted into a knot bun with the ends of your hair let loose, creating a spikey effect. You can wear this hairstyle with your hair center-parted, side-parted, or combed back!

How do you style the Twist-Knot Bun?
This twist-knot bun is easier to create than you think – try it to believe it! Check out this TikTok to get a visual of how you can achieve this trending hairstyle:

1. Part or comb back your hair into a ponytail

Depending on what you’re feeling, you can comb back your hair or part your hair sharply down the middle (or your preferred side). After which, brush and secure your hair into a neat low or high ponytail.

2. Smooth down any frizz and flyaways

Apply some gel to your hair to take control of your frizz and create a snatched hairstyle! We recommend the L'Oreal Tecni.Art Fix Max Gel for Extra Hold (₱ 999), the perfect styling product for slicked back and spikey looks! It does not make your hair sticky, but it does have a strong hold to making your hair sleek and shiny. 

You can also opt for the Balmain Styling Gel Strong (₱ 2,800), which is a lightweight styling gel with long-lasting hold. It is also enriched with the signature Balmain scent – you will look and smell rich! A plant-based option is the Davines This is a Strong Hold Cream Gel (₱ 1,200), a pearly and elastic cream gel that dries out quickly as it controls frizzy strands.

3. Twist your ponytail into a bun

Now’s the time for you to twist your hair around the base of your ponytail to create the bun. As you secure your bun with another hair tie, don’t forget to leave out some of the ends of your hair to create that spikey look! Adjust these ends however you’d like, whether it be at the top of your bun or at the sides.
