The sass & bide gals may have kicked off LFW last Friday but it's taken us a little while to get our hands on this super-exclusive backstage vid. Trust me though, it's worth the wait. Not only do designers Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton share the inspiration of their Spring 2011 collection but Aussie hair director Renya Xydis, working for ghd, swings by for a chat about the sass & bide girl and this season's cornrow-braids-cum-top-knot hairstyle. She said that it's a "cool and edgy" look that "oozes confidence" and is super-easy to adapt to a wearable look for Summer. Renya gives us the lowdown and her top tips for creating the look after the pics . . .
Keep reading . . .STEP 1: Part the hair in the middle and work ghd fat hair lotion into mid-lengths and ends of the hair and shake it through with your fingers. Then dry the product into the hair.
STEP 2: Tip head forward and lightly mist ultimate hairspray throughout the hair to set the texture.
STEP 3: Braid the hair from the bottom of the head upwards and tie both ends into a ponytail at the front of the top of the head.
STEP 4: Use a ghd styler to give texture and movement to the hair in the ponytail.
STEP 5: Twist the hair into a loose bun and tie if off. Keep some hair hanging free and spread it out to give the look of a swept fringe.
