Simple topknot

The topknot is everywhere from celebrities to bloggers and it is not going anywhere. It is the ultra-chic updo.

  • Starting at the roots and from the front of the hair, begin to tease the hair up. The goal is to make the hair as full as possible!
  • Pull the remainder of the hair into a ponytail, but make sure that you do not smooth the front part out as you do so. You want it to be left messy!
  • Secure the hair into a ponytail at the top of your head.
  • Wrap the hair around the base of the ponytail, creating a large bun.
  • Strategically pin down the hair around the shape of the bun.
  • Finish the look with a strong hold hair spray.

Loose waves

Loose waves give a feminine and romantic feel to hair. They can be worn simply or adorned with a fabulous headband.

  • Mist hair with water and apply a curl-enhancing cream.
  • Pull strands into the center and create a ponytail. Twist and wrap the tail around the elastic into a loose bun securing with bobby pins.
  • Blow dry into place.
  • After a few minutes, unravel hair revealing soft waves.
