Summer Style: The Top Knot

I'm absolutely loving the chic, effortless look of the top knot. From a red carpet event to a casual day of brunch and shopping, it works.  Antonio Prieto gave me the scoop on how to master the ballerina bun so you can don one this summer. First prep your coif with mousse and blow dry.  Then, pull your strands straight up into a high ponytail at the top of your crown using your fingers.  This will give more of a loose, messy effect. Twist the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic securing with bobby pins as you go.  Create extra looseness by pinching out pieces of the tucked bun.  Finish with a matte hair spray.
