Tied in knots
The top knot: According to Kim Robinson, celebrated hairstylist and kimrobinson studio director, what makes this style dramatic is that it draws the eyes up, elongating the neck and lifting the cheekbones. “It’s a great way to add height, while showcasing a strong bone structure. Worn ballerina style, it looks polished when paired with smoky eyes and a tuxedo. A slightly more undone and windswept style is a great way to keep the look modern. Blow-dry naturally or spritz a sea salt spray for a piece-y texture. Once it’s dry, tie your hair up into a ponytail at the top centre of your head and begin twisting around the base. Tuck the ends under and secure with a couple of bobby pins. Finish with a light hold, flexible hairspray. If you are goingofr a tighter look, spritz some spray onto a thin brush and skim it over the head so that the hair lies flat. Avoid using too much product, as it canmake the hair look stiff,” he explains.
