We love a simple, easy updo - but sometimes, buns can be straight-up boring AF. At the Ryan Roche SS16 runway show during New York Fashion Week, hairstylist James Pecis showed us how to nail a chignon that walks the line between tough and feminine.

"This season was inspired by '90s ballerinas, maybe between performances, so there has to be a casualness to it," James says. "We're just putting the right texture in the hair and pulling it back into a loose chignon with a little bit sticking out on the side."James Pecis for Ryan Roche SS16Not only is it gorgeous, it's easy enough for you to pull off in the morning. Here's how James does it:

1. Prep hair with Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray ($29, and rough-dry it in. Give the hair a natural, easy center part.
2. Use a one-inch curling iron to bump up the front part of the hair, creating more texture and giving it a natural wave.
3. Work Phyto Professional Matte Texturizing Paste ($24, through the ends.
4. Pull the hair back into a low ponytail and roughly twist down to loop the hair into a low knot. Leave out two inches toward the end of the twist so it sticks out on the right side.
5. Finish by misting Phytolaque Soie Hairspray ($19, to keep it in place.

BAI, topknots.
