The fact of the matter is that J.Lo always gets it right, but we’re particularly fond of this asymmetrical topknot by celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton, who happens to be the man behind many of Lopez’s most iconic looks, in case you want to stalk him on social media.
"You cannot do this hairstyle without freshly washed hair,” says celebrity hairstylist Bok-Hee of the look Priyanka Chopra wore to the 2017 Met Gala. After letting it air-dry, the pro whipped it up into a ponytail and then a bun, finishing it off with Pantene Pro-V Style Series Air Spray for a natural effect that still contained hold.
The topknot is a contradiction in a way. It can be incredibly simple yet very complex at the very same time. See this messy bun on the top of Kendall Jenner’s head? It works because it has multiple components—a center part, volume at the root, the perfect loop, and the ends left out. Instead of going for a perfect circular shape, let your updo have a mind of its own.
Celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa (yep, the same woman who gave you the Beachwaver) created this little twist for Lea Michele’s appearance at the Billboard Music Awards.
Kerry Washington's topknot has an extra dose of volume, and while it's a little undone, it has more of a formal vibe.
Inspired by the 2017 Met Ball’s theme, celebrity hairstylist Gregory Russell crafted this sculptural, super sleek, and high shine topknot for Hailee Steinfeld using the power of John Frieda Frizz Ease Clearly Defined Styling Gel.
