Hair style trends can come and go but one hair style that is sure to stay for a while longer is the Top Knot. A favorite over the summer, the top knot hair style doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Worn loose and messy, the popular hair look doesn’t require many hair products. Worn sleek and stylish, however, and hair products are essential.
Celebrity fans of the top knot include Sienna Miller, Kate Bosworth, Nicole Richie and on Saturday night Reese Witherspoon stepped out at the LACMA Inaugural Art + Film Gala sporting the up-do.
How to get the look?
Step 1: Start with dry hair. We like to use the T3 Evolution Dryer, which cuts our hair drying time by as much as 70%. Now, if you want a loose, romantic look, there is no need to worry about straightening you hair. You could, instead, spray your hair with a texturizer and tease your hair for a more voluminous look. However, if the sleek bun a la Reese Witherspoon is what you’re after, we suggest straightening your hair first. The Chi Nano Silver 1″ Flat Iron is ideal.
Step 2: Pull your hair into a high ponytail at the top of your head and secure it with a clear hair elastic. Expert tip: If you want a super-sleek look, spray your brush with hairspray before brushing your hair back into the ponytail. This is a fail-safe way to ensure your hair stays frizz-less.
Step 3: Wrap your ponytail around the elastic and secure it in place with bobby pins. Criss-cross them for extra-firm hold.
Step 4: Once you have created the topknot look you’re after, spray with hairspray.
