The Undone Topknot
Ideal for busy women, this intentionally imperfect updo works best on unwashed hair.
Shoulder-length or longer hair; any texture.
Get the Look:
• Spray dry shampoo over hair to absorb oil and restore volume. If you have fine hair, add extra lift: Section off strands from the forehead to the crown (like a big Mohawk) and tease.
• Gather hair into a high ponytail with your hands (a brush will make hair too smooth). Secure with an elastic, then twirl the ponytail around the base. (If your pony lacks fullness, backcomb it first.) Tuck a few bobby pins here and there to hold the bun in place.
• Pull a few pieces loose for that effortless effect, and finish with a spritz of hairspray.
