If you’ve browsed any of the beauty blogs lately, you’ll know that celebs are turning up on the red carpet with some gorgeous knotted updo hairstyles. This simple, chic hairstyle is so versatile you could wear it every day and never get bored. Here are a few of our fave ways to rock the look!


Lauren Conrad

For a feminine, soft knotted hairstyle, try a side knot. Keep it below your ear lobes for the best look.


Blake Lively

We admit it, Blake Lively can do no wrong when it comes to style of any kind, but she really perfected the whimsical style of a low knot with loose bangs that can still frame the face.


Vanessa Hudgens

To achieve a casual high knot hairstyle, it is important to keep the hair at your roots tight and let the hair inside the knot fall loosely. It will make the look less severe if you’re not trying to be too formal.


Zoe Saldana

Curling your hair before pinning it in a low side bun will give the knot more texture and dimension. This is especially helpful for women who don’t have the thickest hair.


Gwen Stefani

Make your top knot more interesting by adding twists. You can either add them at the root of your hair, like Gwen did here, or add twists and braids into your knot before you tie it up. Either way, it will look fabulous.


Heidi Klum

Simple and easy, pulling your hair into a traditional knot at the back of your head is a great look during the summer, or if you’re headed outside all day.


Taylor Swift

Playing around with smaller knots at the base of your neck, like this style, can make it look like you’ve cut your hair without having to lose an inch! Definitely try this look out one night if you’re looking for a new style.
