4 steps to mastering a topknot
It’s the easiest up-and-go summer hairstyle
Start with second-day hair
“Don’t be a slave to washing your tresses more than twice a week: it’s best to work off a dirtier palate,” says Nader.
Secure into a ponytail
“Position your pony high on the top of your crown,” says Nader. To create a more casual look, “use your fingers to scrape up your strands before securing your ponytail.”
Wrap into a bun
“Twist the tail and pin in place for a soft, romantic look,” finishes Nader. A final blast of hairspray (like Matrix Style Link Style Fixer Finishing Hairspray) will show your topknot who’s boss.
