3 Different takes on the top knot or how you should wear your hair for spring.

 

If you have long hair and you’ve been wearing the top knot, we have 3 alternatives to keep you ahead of the hair game. After watching most the shows at New York Fashion Week,  I was most inspired by the Anna Sui show with the “Minnie-Mouse”  buns.  It showcased a half up-half down, cute yet edgy style.  Longing to recreate this look in a shoot with our newly launched R+Co products,  I’m blown away by what I find in my inbox a week later.  Low and behold, it’s an email from R+Co describing Garren’s look for the Anna Sui Show and how to recreate it!

Look 2 is inspired by Givenchy’s spring add campaign, featuring a side/top knot.  It’s a perfect combination of sleek meets messy.  This look literally took me 30 seconds to create.  If you’re an expert at the top knot, simply move it to the side a bit, allowing the ends to spray out.

 Look 3 is one of my favorites and a classic.  The low, side bun is chic and its simplicity allows for you to take a day off from styling without looking like you took the day off from styling.

The key to all 3 styles is to make sure your hair is not squeaky clean.  If it is or still has that freshly washed slip to it, add dry shampoo to the roots and a texturizing spray to the mids and ends for just enough grit to get those bobbi pins to stay put.  Our go to products are R+Co’s Death Valley Dry Shampoo and Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray.
