4 steps to mastering a topknot

It’s the easiest up-and-go summer hairstyle

Sometimes shampooing isn’t on the cards every day of the week. Enter the topknot: it’s the best way to showcase cheekbones and save a bad hair day. And it takes little effort to master. Here, Anthony Nader of Sydney’s RAW salon talks us through how to get this easy up-and-go summer hairstyle.

1

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.

2

Add grit to your tresses

To create workable texture, “Flip your head over and give your roots a spritz with dry shampoo and massage it in,” explains Nader. We love Klorane Dry Shampoo With Nettle.

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.
