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...
