How to Holiday Hairstyle #2 – Top Knot

The Top Knot Hair Style

The Top Knot

With the holiday season just around the corner, here is an easy, chic hairstyle to try for any upcoming parties.  The Top Knot is a fantastic quick style for the holidays that will keep hair off your face and works for all hair types.  A Top Knot can easily become a super dressy statement and doesn’t take much effort.  It’s an easy hairstyle for anyone with at least shoulder length hair.  This hairstyle has been inspired by many celebrities including Julianne Hough, Amanda Seyfrid, Gwen Stefani, & Nicole Richie to name a few.  The Top Knot will undoubtedly add an element of elegance to your look, day or night.


  • Start by blow-drying damp hair with a smoothing lotion or styling cream like Tigi After Party Smoothing Cream.  Use a paddle brush to add shine and create a smooth finish.
  • Gather your hair together and tie it in a high ponytail.  It might be easier to flip your head over to create the ponytail so you can get it nice and high.  For a smooth look, make sure there are  no bumps or tangles.  Be sure your ponytail is secured with a strong elastic.   Tip:   Placement is key — it should sit flat on the top of the head
  •  Lightly twist the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic to create the bun.   Secure the top knot in place with hair pins.
  • Finish the look by misting a  shine spray to leave a smooth polished look.

Voila, ready to go!  This is a great look for the holiday party hostess or the party attendee!
