Reminiscent of the classic ballerina bun and more work appropriate than a tutu, this topknot is a fun, flattering and easy way to get hair up and out of the way. Adding a soft, disheveled braid brings romantic femininity to the style. This look easily transitions from day to night, setting off a simple tee, a dramatic neckline, or a statement piece of jewelry.

Step: Pull all of your hair into a high ponytail and secure with a rubber band. Use holding spray to smooth.

Step: Braid the ponytail loosely and finish with a rubber band. Fold over the front of the ponytail and secure the ends underneath with bobby pins.

Step: Use your fingers to pull apart the ponytail and finish with Refinish Dry Shampoo for a roughed-up, gritty texture.
