Sometimes I get lazy... I don't want to leave my bed, I don't want to blog and I certainly don't want to do my hair, but I don't want to go outside looking a hot mess either. Anyone with me on this?!
Enter the topknot, a trend that is exploding in popularity as of late. Beyonce and Solange Knowles, Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, Gwen Stefani, Vanessa Hudgens, and Victoria Beckham are only a few of the myriad celebrities sporting the trend.
But what on earth is a topknot? A topknot is simply a really high bun. To create this hairstyle you only need a couple of hair elastics and your hair gathered on top of your head.... trust me it's really easy to do. That simplicity means it's not going to cost us common folk a month's salary to be on trend and it doesn't take hours to do either.
The topknot looks good on straight, curly, braided and even dread-locked hair. And in even more good news... it's versatile enough to go to the office, the classroom, the mall and even the gym.
The key to the topknot:
+ thick or long enough hair for the knot to be full; a tiny topknot doesn't have a pronounced affect and looks wimpy
+ well groomed eyebrows and clear skin (concealer and foundation are sometimes a girl's best friend)- pulling all your hair away from your face draws attention to the skin
+ large earrings, a statement necklace or bold lipstick really punctuate this look
