Style bloggers have been rocking top-knots for ages, and now celebrities are embracing this trendy hairstyle. In early June, lovely Julianne Hough paired a messy top-knot with an edgy neon dress at the premiere of Rock of Ages. The next day, Ashley Tisdale wore a top-knot with a sheer lace dress at the Butterfly Ball. Ashley is certainly working summer bohemia, yet there’s something to love about Julianne’s daring ensemble paired with that tousled bun. So what do you think –– who wore it best?
Step: To create your own top knot, apply detangling foam to aid smoothness and blowdry hair loosely with hands.
Step: Using flat brush, brush hair and gather as if taking hair into a smooth, high ponytail. Now take hold of this hair and twist to the crown, turning it into a bun-knot hybrid.
Step: Rub surface with hands to loosen some pieces and create texture. Use the distressed top-knots in the images above as inspiration.
Step: Pulse Refinish dry shampoo into finished look to create a gritty texture that adds to the beatnik feel.
