the art of the top knot

Summer's in the air and so is the heat. Sweeping your hair up in a top knot (a la Elizabeth Olsen or Ashley Greene) is a simple, but elegant way to keep your hair off your shoulders.

Here's a quick tutorial on how to create this look (without a rubber band!)

{materials: a handful of bobby pins, a brush (optional), and a headband}

Step 1: Gather your hair in a high ponytail (you can use a brush to do this)

Step 2: Twist your hair counterclockwise until you reach the tips of your hair

Step 3: Secure the edges of your bun with bobby pins

When you're finished pinning your hair, it should look something like this!

Step 4: Finish the look off with a chic headband
