Hair Tutorial! The No-Wash Topknot For Busy Mornings (Video)

No time to wash your hair? The topknot is a fail-safe, stylish answer for hectic mornings, plus it keeps hair out of your eyes and can be dressed up or down. Here’s how.

 

Start with a ponytail

Pull your hair into a high ponytail and secure in place just above your crown with a hairband. We love Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring (£3.75, boots.com) for keeping hair in place, without slipping.

Brush in volume

Lightly back-brush the lengths of your ponytail to add texture and volume to your topknot. A Mason Pearson brush (£36.19, escentual.com) is perfect for this, or a flat paddle brush. 

Wrap and pin

Twist lengths around the elastic and either secure the knot with another hairband or pin with kirby grips (try Hair Grips, £2.09, superdrug.com) to hold in place. 

Mess it up

Gently loosen the knot to give a lived-in feel and spray with hairspray (we love Pantene Ultra Strong Hold Hairspray, £2.78, ocado.com) for all day hold.
