Hairstyle How-To Video: The Sleek Topknot

Every Friday afternoon in the LOOK office, a small crowd of girls gather round the beauty desk, waiting for Katie, LOOK’s very own Beauty Writer, to skillfully style their hair for their Friday night out. She straightens, twists, plaits and sprays their hair into gorgeous Bardot-inspired bouncy down ’dos and sleek plaited updos – and teaches  them how to do it themselves at the same time (she’s multi-talented, our Katie). It’s become such a ritual in the LOOK office that we thought we’d share it with you…

This week, Katie shows you how to do a sleek topknot – a tidy hairstyle that hides bad-hair days, adds instant glam to any outfit and takes minutes to create. This popular summer style has been seen on the SS11 runways and celebrities including
Jamie Chung,
Thandie Newton, Diana Vickers and
Jessica Lowndes
who have added oomph to both their off-duty and red-carpet looks.
