  How to Style a Top Knot

A top knot is a great hairstyle for women with long hair, especially when they're in a rush and don't have time to wash or style their tresses. A top knot can be styled in different ways, ranging from super neat to really messy, depending on where you want to wear it. You can even accessorize your updo with an ornate headband to whip up a quick hairstyle for a glam event!

You can make a top knot with straight, wavy and curly hair. The thicker your hair texture, the more voluminous your updo will look. However, you can also go for this hairstyle even if you have fine hair. Just remember to spritz some high lift creation hairspray at the roots to give your hair an instant boost and make it look voluminous.

Here are two ways to style your top knot – a sleek version that you can wear to work and a messy, casual variant that you can sport to a party:

Style 1: Neat Top Knot for Work

To make a prim 'n' proper top knot for work, you'll need:

- A tail comb

- Hair elastic

- Bobby pins

- A frizz vanisher hair cream

- A fine-hold hairspray

Get the Look

Step one

Rub in a small amount of frizz vanisher cream through your hair to detangle knots and make your tresses look smooth and shiny.

Step two

Comb your hair thoroughly and gather it in a high ponytail at the crown of your head. Secure the pony with hair elastic.

Step three

Divide your ponytail in three or four sections of equal thickness. Wrap each section around the base of the pony and secure with bobby pins to make a neat top knot.

Step four

Spritz your updo with some fine-hold hairspray to smooth out cowlicks, tame flyways and set your hairstyle for longer wear.

Styling tip: You can also braid your high ponytail and wrap it around the base of your hair elastic to create a pretty, braided updo.

Style 2: Messy Top Knot for a Party

To create a casual, messy top knot, you'll need:

- A hair brush

- Hair elastic

- Bobby pins

- A fine hold hairspray

Get the Look

Step one

Flip your head over and gather all your hair in a messy high ponytail at the crown of your head. Secure it with the hair elastic.

Step two

Back brush your high ponytail to give it a gentle tease and create volume for the messy look. Remember, the messier your hair, the sexier this updo will look!

Step three

Wrap your ponytail around the hair elastic and secure it with bobby pins. Gently pull out a couple of face-framing wisps of hair to lend your updo a romantic appeal.

Step four

Spritz some fine hold hairspray to set your messy party hairstyle for longer wear.

Styling tip: Add a little bling to your messy top knot by accessorizing with an ornate headband or hair chain!
