The updo in all its forms is a hairstyle staple. The topknot is a classic look and a good way to banish a bad hair day. A favorite of celebs like Kim Kardashian and Fergie, it also showed up on the Erin Fetherston runway during this season’s New York Fashion Week.
Harry Josh, the International Creative Consultant for John Frieda® and top celebrity hairstylist, gives us these tips to get your own elegant topknot:
Once dry, gather all hair high on top of the head.
Wrap hair around itself completely into a bun and tuck the ends underneath the bun.
Use hair pins to secure so that they disappear under the bun, locking underneath and creating a little fortress so that the bun doesn't move around. If you have thick hair, the pins may not be as secure, so you can use an elastic. The elastic can then be disguised by wrapping the hair around it.
