Scroll through your social media feeds and you’ll note there’s definitely a must “do” when it comes to hair! Yep, who would have thought that the careless just ‘hopping in the shower’ half top-knot is your key to nailing effortless chic! Mastered by a who's who of models and celebrities including Mary-Kate Olsen, Alexandra Spencer (below), it’s sure to become your go-to do too. Best bit? It looks even better with second day (read: dirty!) hair. Pass the dry shampoo!
