What’s not to love about the trusty topknot? They are one of the quickest and easiest ways to rock an amazing ‘do with very little effort. One of the biggest hair trends this year, it doesn’t matter if your hair is long or short, clean or dirty; in fact they are the best way to transform lank third day hair into a chic evening style in under 10 minutes.

But why pick a topknot over the array of other buns? Well, this easy updo is without doubt the simplest of all buns to create – you don’t need a hairpiece or hair donut, all you need is a brush, hair tie and some pins!
Braids are all the rage, so why not
braid your bun like Gigi Hadid.
Decide whether you want to try a sleek or messy updo – if you’re looking to add an edge of shabby chic to an otherwise sophisticated style, loosely create your topknot, as you normally would, then take a comb and lightly tease sections out around the face and from the bun. For a sleeker finish, use a touch of gel and comb through your hair to keep frizz and flyaways at bay.

To keep your ‘do in tact all day and night be sure to use a generous amount of hairspray – you don’t want tumbling tresses mind night out!
