Revamp the topknot for summer

The warm weather is here, meaning you can freely rock that romper you've been saving all winter as well as those fabulous wedges you spent half your paycheck on. While your style may be on-point, your hair might be doing everything in its power to ruin your big moment. From frizz and flyaways to wild curls and puffiness, having less-than-perfect hair can totally ruin your day. While using hair products like Steiner Shine Drops Hair Serum 50ml on humid days can help curb frizziness, creating a stylish take on the traditional topknot might be another suitable option to try. 

Go big or go home
The first topknot revamp to attempt is one with major attitude and volume. The pros at Marie Claire magazine recommend starting this transformation by getting your hair to sit sleekly on the very top of your head. When everything is smoothed, grab a skinny elastic and tie your hair up high into a ponytail. Next, grab your comb and start to backcomb the pony to add major height to the style.

When you look like you're straight out of the '80s, start to twist your hair around the elastic. When the bun is big and beautiful, grab some bobby pins and begin to secure the style, a few should do the trick. Finish the look by spraying plenty of Steiner Stay Put Extra Firm Finishing Spray 200 ml all over to keep the hair in place - no matter the elements outside. 

Braid-y bunch
Looking for a more professional or interesting topknot? Why not add a braid into the mix? To attempt this version, begin to style your hair in the same way as you did with the other style - pulling the hair up high and keeping it smooth. After you've secured the pony with an elastic, twist your hair in a rope braid style and then go over the braid with hair spray to keep it together. 

Finish the gorgeous and easy style by twisting the braid around the elastic, creating a bun, and then add a few pins to keep it in place. Spray again for best results and pair the look with a gorgeous LBD or another fashionable summer-worthy ensemble to turn heads with your hair flair.

According to Elle magazine, wearing topknots puts you in good company. Stars like Elizabeth Banks, Gwen Stefani Julianne Hough and Nicole Richie have all donned similar styles to red carpet events.
