Even though long locks can be fun, they can be quite a burden on scorching hot days. That’s why we’re loving this look from the August issue of Vogue Turkey: not only does it get the hair off your neck, but it also looks chic and polished. Our brand marketing & merchandising manager, Rachel, is a pro at creating this style, and loves it for summer.
"The top knot is definitely one of my NYC beauty survival tips," Rachel says. "It’s easy, but also looks like you took time to do your hair when in reality, you just threw it on the top of your head."
To create this ‘do, Rachel flips her head over and brushes her hair from the nape of her neck to smooth out the back. Next, she creates a pony tail on the top of her head with an elastic and then twists her hair around the base of the pony tail and secures her hair with a second elastic. Finally, she uses a couple of bobby pins strategically to keep down any stray hairs.
Stay cool this weekend, NYC!
