Are you keen to show off summer-ready hair alongside your hot beach-ready bod? The ultimate summer hair trend for 2020 is *drum roll please* the top knot. Yes, the messy go-to ‘do that every girl tends to wear on a Sunday morning when she just can’t be bothered to do anything worthwhile to her hair or when it hasn’t been washed in a few days and is way too greasy to let loose.
The top knot is trending all over Hollywood with supermodels rocking it in between shoots, and celebrities selecting it for red carpet events. So, how exactly can you get the look and pull it off like the star you are? Here’s a breakdown.
Use a nourishing hair oil or anti-frizz cream and work it through the lengths of the hair.
Start by separating your hair into two sections – one at the crown of your head and one just below it.
Tie up the section of the hair at the crown with a hair tie.
Grab all of your hair and brush all the loose strands up into one ponytail, including the already secured section. Make your top knot sit as high up on your head as you like. If you want a sleek and sophisticated look, gather the hair neatly and tightly into the ponytail and tie with another hair tie. For a more laid-back, casual vibe, embrace the messy aesthetic and leave a few strands hanging loose before finishing off with the hair tie.
Twist the lengths and wind your hair around the tie, securing with bobby pins.
Keep the style in place with a generous spritz of hair spray.
The great news about the top knot is that it’s total ‘internet hair’. In other words, because it can be seen from the front of your face, it makes for epic selfies that are sure to have pride of place on Instagram and Facebook! Remember, if you didn’t snap a selfie and share it with the world, it never really happened.
