Ready to rock a new hairstyle? Instead of committing to one single hairstyle idea, why not play with your hairstyle on the daily? With our guide to the seven best top knots—which just so happen to be one of the season’s hottest hairstyle trends—for every day of the week, you’ll be able to do just that. So, what’re you waiting for? Grab a brush and a hair tie, and follow along with our updo guide.
Not ready to commit for a full updo? This half-up top knot is just for you!
What you’ll need:
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray
Get the look by following these simple steps:
Top knots don’t work well with knotty hair, so make sure to comb through yours first.
No beach? No problem. A few spritzes of a wave-enhancing hair spray should do the trick.
Use your comb to divide your hair into a top and bottom layer, starting at your hairline around your temples, extending towards your crown.
Depending on the length of your hair you can: A) flip it into a little loop if you have short hair, B) twist it into a baby bun, or C) mound it however you’d like atop your crown. For added allure, consider wrapping your top knot with a fabric hair tie or scarf.
Sure, top knots are adorable all on their own, but what if we told you that you can add bangs into the mix, too? Yep, we thought that’d get your attention.
As always, knots are not your friend.
Comb an inch or two back from your hairline straight over your face. This section will serve as your bangs.
Split your face-forward section of hair down the middle. Twist the ends of each section and pin them back to either side of your head. If you have long tails, you can comb them behind your ears for a whimsical touch. Gently piece in the center of your forehead to bring each section together a bit for a realistic fringe finish.
Comb the rest of your hair back and up into a ponytail. Next, twirl your ponytail and circle it around the base before pinning it in place to create your top knot.
Give your top knot a little texture with this easy-to-follow braided technique.
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray
There’s no place for knots in this hairstyle.
A quick spritz of texturizing spray can take your hairstyle from drab to fab. Simply spritz some close to your roots and use your fingers to scrunch and activate it for an instant lift.
When combing your hair up and back, use a light-handed approach so as to not flatten the volume you just created. Once everything’s lightly combed back, use a hair tie to secure your pony.
Pick your technique — classic three-strand or fishtail. Braid to the ends.
Holding the ends in your hand, fluff up each section of your braid before wrapping it around itself and pinning it in place to form your top knot.
It’s Thursday. While you may not be looking to get twisted, your hair certainly is.
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray
You know the drill.
Pretty self-explanatory at this point, yes?
To create a rope braid, divide your ponytail into two equal sections and twist them both in the same direction down to your ends. Then twist them together on the opposite direction to create your rope braid. Secure with a clear elastic.
Simply wrap your ponytail around the base and pin it in place to bring your twisted rope topknot to life.
Since this hairstyle involves so much twisting, it’s a good idea to give your hair a little extra hold. We recommend a few spritzes of a strong hold hair spray.
Because, let’s be real, at the end of a long work week, who has time to create a super-neat look? Luckily for us, the messy look is totally in.
L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo
Or don’t. After all, this is meant to look messy.
It’s Friday and we wouldn’t blame you if you weren’t feeling a full hair care routine. Instead of showering, blow-drying, and styling, reach for a can of dry shampoo to do pretty much the same thing. Absorbs oil and adds a lovely scent to hair? Yes, please.
Instead of giving you a bunch of steps, this one’s pretty simple. Just flip your head over, pull your hair into a ponytail, loop it over itself, and secure it with a hair tie. If you’re not a fan of any stray strands hanging loose, simply use a few bobby pins to tuck them away.
Saturday calls for fresh strands and sleek style.
L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Extreme Style Gel
This should be second nature by now, don’t you think?
To help lock in that sleek look that everyone is swooning over, smooth some hair gel from your hairline back toward the crown of your head.
Run a comb back through your hair to smooth out any kinks and apply more hair gel wherever you need a bit sleeker shine. Tie your hair into a high ponytail and twist it into a top knot.
Give your sleek top knot a spritz or two of shine-enhancing hair spray to help it stay put while you dance the night away.
Ah, Sunday. How we love thee. Along with PJ days and a good summer read comes the need for an extra flouncy top knot.
Get the look by following this simple step:
It’s Sunday, so keep it simple. Skip the combing, skip the bobby pins—just pull your hair into a no-fuss jumbo top knot that flops every which way it pleases.
