The activewear trend has been extremely popular on the street and last week it finally made its way to the red carpet. At the premiere of The Giver, actress Katie Holmes was spotted rocking a messy, textured topknot that looked more appropriate for a sweaty gym session than a Hollywood opening night. Call us strange, but we loved it. It was a perfect mix of street style with a dash of elegance. Best yet, you don’t have to walk the red carpet to try this look on. Click through to style notes to learn the details of how to get this nonchalant look. –– Michelle Rotbart


Step One: Apply a dollop of styling whip to damp hair and work in from roots to ends. Use a blow dryer to dry rough and enhance your natural texture.

Step Two: Once hair is dry, pull into a high ponytail and secure tightly with a hair tie.

Step Three: Divide hair into two sections and spray in refinish dry shampoo and tousle.

Step Four: Gently twist the two sections together, coiling the hair tightly around the base of the ponytail and secure with pins. Finish with sprays of primp.
