Anne Moratto | September 11, 2015 | 10:31 AM

Macadamia Professional International Creative Director and celebrity stylist Giannandrea made the “The Back Knot” a Fashion Week must-have at the Nicholas K Spring/Summer 2016 show on September 10, 2015.  A modern twist on the Asian classic top knot, here’s how he did it:


  1. Slightly damp hair with water and create a center part all the way to the highest point of the head.  Evenly distribute Macadamia Professional Foaming Volumizer  from the roots to the ends.
  2. Section hair from top of head to ears, combing down from the part. Take back, large sections and blow dry using a diffuser and the Macadamia Professional Boar Bristle Paddle Brush.
  3. For heat protection and added shine, apply  Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Spray onto dried hair. Run a flatiron through all sections to straighten hair.
  4. Gather all hair at the nape of the neck using the paddle brush and create a tight, low ponytail.  Secure the ponytail in place with an elastic and reinfoce with pins.
  5. Then, secure the weft of extensions onto the elastic.
  6. Take a small section of the weft to hold aside.
  7. With remaining hair in the pony,  create a loose loop and secure with another elastic.
  8. Wrap the small section of loose hair around the elastic, securing it with a pin and spray the Macadamia Professional Style Lock Strong Hold Hairspray for lasting placement.
