Stylist Paul Hanlon for OSiS+ designed undone, urban knots for the Rag & Bone runway show at the 2014 Fall/Winter Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. 

Hanlon says the look isn't supposed to be glamorous. He wanted it to have "a masculine edge — more of a street style," he says.


STEP 1: Cover the hair generously with OSiS+ Grip extreme hold mousse and then rough dry to give hair a powdery texture. 

STEP 2: Apply OSiS+ Rough Rubber paste and work through roots to make them dirty, which creates separation and strong definition.

STEP 3: Apply OSiS+ Dust It mattifying powder to the entire head. Twist large sections and back-comb with fingers to mimic a dread-lock look.

STEP 4: Spray a thin layer of OSiS+ Elastic flexible hold hairspray to keep frayed ends in place. Gather hair at the nape of the neck and tie strands in a knot. Leave a few pieces out. 

STEP 5: Work OSis+ Mess Up matt gum to hair around the face to add shine and contrast. Blow loose locks back to give the style shape, and finish the look with OSiS+ Freeze strong hold hairspray.
