The topknot has a different vibe than other up-styles. It feels edgy, casual, and a little tough. It isn’t precious, cute, or overly feminine, and last year it was one of the most popular looks among fashionistas. Then, like many trends, it’s popularity declined; it was replaced by low ponytails, milkmaid braids, and wet-look chignons. But the topknot is making a comeback. Revamped with a slightly softer, expanded shape, the re-imagined topknot is sure to become a staple for 2014. Read on for step-by-step instructs to getting this trending look. –– Laura Martin

December is full of events, parties, and family get-togethers, but the biggest event of the season is yet to come: New Years Eve. This playful updo is the perfect accessory for sparkling party ensembles. Fluffy roots, a side swept front and loose strands on one side of the face add a festive vibe to this neat chignon. The bun sits low and wide, peaking around the neck, while a decorative ear cuff gives the feminine look a bespoke feel. To learn to recreate this style, click style notes.
