Allison Williams demonstrated the perfect last minute hairstyle while in NYC when she slicked her long brown hair back into a high top knot. Paired with light pink makeup, her look was effortless but still chic. Get the details on copying her red carpet look, in real life.

Allison Williams, 27, reminded us that everyone’s favorite lazy day hairstyle, the top knot, can still look glam when done right. The Girls actress was in NYC for the premiere of The One on October 28 a Forevermark celebration of “A Diamond is Forever”, where she opted for a casual look that included a ballerina-like bun and the pretty pink makeup to match.

For most of us, bun day means you either skipped a hair wash or woke up too late to go through your usual styling routine. But Allison proved that when slicked back and twisted up, the top knot looks more ladylike and less lazy.

Whether you just hopped out of the shower and don’t have time to blow dry and style your hair or the whole reason you need to pull your hair up is because you haven’t washed it, Allison’s knot is simple to recreate. On wet hair, simply comb your hair out then brush it back into a tight ponytail at the crown of your head. Twist the ponytail into a knot and tuck the hair under, using bobby pins to anchor it into place and setting with hairspray. On dry hair, create the wet finish by working a gel like Davines This Is A Medium Hold Modeling Gel through your hair before pulling it back.

For the rest of your look, you can copy Allison’s feminine makeup with pink lipstick, frosty pink shadow and oversized lashes. Or, you can focus on one makeup statement with either a bold lip or graphic cat eye when you’re in a rush and don’t have time for a whole face of makeup.
