Updo hairstyles are amping up their game with the topknot trend. We’ll be the first and certainly not the last to tell you - when it comes to updo hairstyles, the top knot is as effortless to pull off as it is flattering. What we love about this hair updo? The list is long: it’s fun, sexy, feminine, young and last but not least, it’s easy! That’s just five reasons to try the top knot and we’re all for it.

Scroll down to see the hottest ways to wear this classic hair updo, as well as pro tips on how to pull them off. Time to get on top of these gorgeous looks - literally!

Top Knot Look #1: Textured Tresses

Everything about the half updo knot just screams perfectly undone - so there’s no better way to achieve this look than with textured bedhead hair! First, spray some Redken Fashion Waves 07 Sea-Salt Spray generously to damp hair for that I-woke-up-like-this texture. Next, get the volume you need to create this sleek look with Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam, taking your knot to actual new heights. Simply spray the product in at the roots, sectioning off your hair at the crown. Proceed as if you were about to tie this section into a messy ponytail, but leave it looped on the last twist, creating an effortless bun. And voilà - topknot perfection!

Top Knot Look #2: Ride The Waves

We love the effect of a waved top knot, particularly striking on shorter hair - the definition of hipster vibes. We think wavy hair symbolises weekend hair, and who doesn’t love to immortalise the best part of the week with this cheeky hair updo? Get your curls twirling with Redken Curvaceous Curl Refiner and let your hair down for maximum style points.

Top Knot Look #3: Far Out Space Buns

What’s better than one top knot? How about two! This playful look hits all the right notes, mixing a middle parting with out-of-this-world double buns. Embrace your inner wild child with this festival inspired look that does all the talking! Go get them buns, hun!
