Currently viewing the tag: "Topknot"



In the oppressing heat of July temperatures, it’s basically routine to simply throw your hair up into a bun and go on with your day. It’s a quick and easy solution and provides relief from a sweaty neck. And while top knots are fab, they’re not always practical depending on your length and if you plan to put your hair back down during the day. That’s why you should start perfecting your low bun game. A low chignon won’t disturb the hair at your crown like a topknot will. So if you catch yourself getting a bit too sweaty for your liking, simply swoop hair back and secure with an elastic. Once you are ready to take it down again, shake out. It won’t look like you ever put it up…plus no dents. And the possibilities are endless.

While it’s sadly not as simple as rolling out of bed and throwing on the first thing that’s on your floor, once you’re accustomed to the look, one notices certain common traits, like messy topknots, low pony’s and cool hats mixed with an oversized T’s and major confidence.
