Famous or not, few people have mastered the top knot hairstyle as well as Jennifer Lopez. The singer has been rocking the high bun look since she started in Hollywood, and she always makes it look gorgeous. Learn expert tips for recreating the look for your next holiday party!
Jennifer Lopez, 46, has your holiday hair covered thanks to her slicked back top knot style. The sleek look can go from elegant to edgy with the right outfit and accessories, making it a go-to style for any occasion.
Celebrity stylist Nick Arrojo says the sleek top knot is “the perfect style to draw attention in a classy, upscale way,” for holiday parties. And if you’re thinking that a bun style is boring or overdone, Nick says it’s the “smooth finish and extra high placement” of the style favored by JLo that gives the look a more modern appearance.
Not quite sure how to get it? Follow Nick’s simple breakdown for mastering the style:
1) Apply a strong-hold sculpting product like Arrojo Styling Creme throughout lengths and brush into a ponytail right at the top of the head. Make sure to place the shape above the crown so that it’s visible from the front; if it sits lower it’ll look more like a ballerina bun.
2) Use an elastic to secure the ponytail, then twist the tail up and around the base, securing with bobby pins.
