There are some styles that refuse to go out of fashion, and fuss-free top knots top the list. The perfect fix to a bad hair day has got a fun makeover, with actors, from Bollywood and Hollywood, championing some knotty behaviour.

From airport shutterbug sightings to red-carpet dos — the top knot seems to have also seen a revamp that allows it to work across occasions. “Top knots are easy-to-do with many variations. From opting for a messy, lazy Sunday-perfect do, a post-workout fix or a neat, more formal look for events — what you choose depends on the crowd you are showing it off too,” says hair expert Rod Anker. “A trick? The top knot will sit better if the hair is a little dirty. Treat with dry shampoo to get rid of excess oil,” he adds.

For beauty expert Ambika Pillai, the hair style has seen a big evolution. “Top knots were meant for formal and semi-formal dos. But, of recent, many youngsters wear it casual in half top knots or bunched up in untidy knots. And, these actually work well!”

Beauty expert Naina Arora agrees and says clients come in on regular basis to master the messy look. “The messy knot paired with a slick, pulled-back front is popular this season. Also, taking the hair away from the face and scooping it all up helps in highlighting the collar bones,” she says.
