From Alicia Vikander's 2016 Golden Globes after party bun to Kylie Jenner's sleek and structured red carpet updo – topknots are one of Hollywood's favorite hairstyles this season and for all the right reasons too! After all, they check out all the boxes of style, comfort and convenience.

Whether you want to get your hair off your face and back, protect your tresses in this cold weather, show off your gorgeous cheekbones or simply fix your lovely locks in a jiffy and get going – a topknot comes super handy for just about any styling need.

Here's how you can sweep up your hair in style and create a perfect Hollywood topknot in 5 minutes:

You'll Need

- Volume inject mousse

- Wide-toothed comb

- Hair tie

- Bobby pins

Get the Look

Step One

Work in a tiny amount of volume inject mousse through your hair to create bulk and bounce and lend your mane an extra strong hold.

Step Two

Detangle your hair using the wide-toothed comb. Leave your tresses as-is if you're after a sleek finish. If not, gently scrunch your hair with your fingers to create some texture for an

undone effect.

Step Three

Sweep up your into a high ponytail and secure it with hair tie.

Step Four (Styling Options)

Option 1: Twist your ponytail like a rope, wrap it around the base of the hair tie and secure it with bobby pins to create a twisted topknot.

Option 2: Plait your high pony before wrapping it around the base of the hair tie to create a braided topknot.

Option 3: Lift your high pony and give the lower layers a good tease to create extra volume. Wrap and secure the volumized pony to create a large, chunky topknot.

Option 4: Slick your neat topknot with a tiny amount of styling gel smoothed over the top hair to tame flyways and create an ultra-polished look.

Step Five

Spritz your topknot generously with hairspray and you're good to go!

Ladies, sock buns and donut-shaped chignons are so last season; perfectly casual topknots are all the rage these days! Ideal for all hair textures – straight, wavy and curly – these updos will help you channel your inner ballerina beauty off-duty and look hot on trend even in this frigid season!
