If I were to vote for the comfiest hairstyle, I wouldn’t blink an eye before picking the top knot.
Top knots are easy-breezy, simple to create and absolutely fuss-free. What’s not to love about this uber chic hairstyle? The best part is that top knots help keep your hair away from your sweaty neck. Just perfect for the summers! Do you need any more reason to wear a top knot all day, every day?
However, just because it’s a super easy hairstyle, does not mean you should keep wearing it in the same old boring way. You can totally dress up your top knot with the right accessories.
Here are 4 cool ways to glam up your top knot.
Use crochet headbands
Ditch the regular headbands for a quirkier hair accessory. We are talking about crochet headbands that we spotted on the runway at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020. The bright and colourful crochet flowers tied together into a headband screams summer. It can instantly add more glam to your regular top knot. We are in love with this gorgeous accessory!
Wire it up
Who thought that a wire could make for such a cool hair accessory? Your simple top knot just got a chic upgrade! First, pull all your hair together into a ponytail. Then, turn the ponytail into a loose braid and roll it into a top knot in a way that it looks higher than your usual top knots. Secure the top knot with a wire going across the hairstyle. Leave out a few face-framing strands for a messy effect.
Greek goddess headpiece
What adds instant oomph to a simple top knot, you ask? A larger-than-life hair accessory. Yes! Make your top knot look chic AF by dressing it up with a Greek goddess-esque headpiece. Also, to break away from the regular style, go super sleek on the crown area and keep your top knot puffy and voluminous. Lastly, place the accessory on the side of your head to take your hair game a notch higher.
Here’s another way of updating your regular top knot. But, this one’s a little high maintenance. You need to get coloured highlights to make your top knot hairstyle stand out. Go for light brown streaks and then style your hair into a top knot. You’ll notice how beautifully the hair colour accentuates your top knot. Give it a shot?!
