A Cool New Take On the Topknot At Katie Gallagher

There is nothing we love more than a fresh take on an easy-to-achieve hairstyle. Yesterday at Katie Gallagher, we spied the perfect new iteration of the topknot, one that’s messy and expertly side-swept. Lead stylist for Moroccan Oil, Cesar Ramirez, said of the look: “I wanted to add an intricate feeling to something that was really simple and effortless.” To add that extra dimension, the back of the hair was sectioned into three twists and then all the pieces were twisted into a topknot. “The less effort the better,” said Ramirez, much to our delight (even though he later admitted that anyone with thick hair would need to use a handful of bobby pins). To set the romantic, wispy style, he used Moroccan Oil’s Luminous Strong Hold Spray.

Quite Possibly The Most Perfect Summer Style: The Top Knot

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!
