Looking for a fresh and foolproof style for a first date or a girls’ night out? Thanks to countless appearances on the red carpet, topknots are now nighttime-approved. But, despite its effortless appeal, there is a science behind the look. Read on to find out how to achieve a perfectly-imperfect topknot every time.
While we usually throw our topknot up into place after day 2 and heaps of dry shampoo, sometimes starting on air-dryed or day old hair is best. If hair has kinks or curls, it is best to rough dry or dry with a paddle brush to get smooth strands with the perfect volume and texture.
Step 1 – Brush out your hair, then apply label.m Smoothing Cream to strands to deliver moisture and eliminate flyaways.
Step 2 – Use a paddle brush to gently smooth out the hair around your crown, then pull your hair into a ponytail at the top of your head and secure it with a label.m Bungee Hook.
Step 3 – Grab the end of your ponytail and gently twist the hair, then wrap your ponytail in a circle around the hair bungee. Use label.m Kirby Grips to secure the bun into place. Next, pull out a few face-framing pieces if desired, then finish with label.m Hairspray.
If you've been using traditional hair ties, your topknots may be falling short! Using a bungee instead will allow you to get hold and movement where you need it most. Hair bungees are easier to use and can create more dimensional styles. Want to find out for yourself? Pick up the tool pro's rely on here!
