At the Dsquared2 S/S 2011 show during Milan Fashion Week, models were styled by Sam McKnight, Global Stylist Ambassador for Pantene Pro-V.

The Inspiration for the hair looks to complement the Dsquared2 collection was young and fresh super sleuths: intellectual-looking boys and girls with an unfussy attitude; dishevelled bow buns on girls, boyish girls with masculine side partings. It seems geek chic is far from dead ladies.

Get the look:
  1.  "The base of any great style is freshly washed and conditioned hair using Aqua Light Shampoo and Conditioner," says Sam McKnight, Global Style Ambassador for Pantene. To build texture and volume with a glossy finish, Sam combed Pantene Pro-V Smooth & Sleek Mousse through from the roots to the ends.
  2. He then blow dried the hair back and away from the face using a paddle brush to keep hair smooth.
  3. Allowing hair to fall into a natural parting, or creating a low side parting for the 'boyish' girls, Sam then caught hair into a ponytail, positioned just above the nape of the neck. To create a bow shape, Sam looped the length of the hair up and tied to secure the loop into the base of the pony tail using no-snag elastic.
  4. The remaining length of the hair was looped round to complete the other side of the bow and pinned into the base of the ponytail to secure. Any remaining lengths were used to cover the centre of the bow.
  5. The key to achieving Sam's signature 'Done, undone' look lies in making the style look as if the girls had done their hair themselves. So to complete the style, Sam pulled out loose tendrils of hair at the sides and then using his fingers, added texture to the bun by slightly teasing the hair.
