Soft Top Knot
  • GET THE LOOK

soft top knot

Rock bohemian beauty this party season. Don’t be afraid of wearing your hair up for a big event – choose a soft top knot for your statement look and pair textured tresses with an uber-chic updo hairstyle. Keep your locks up and off your shoulders with a top knot that’s guaranteed to last from turning up to taxis home.

For the ultimate soft top knot, you need loose texture. Bring that base lift through your mid-lengths by prepping your locks with a root lift spray. Flip your head upside down to dry the product in with the ghd air® hairdryer and ghd paddle brush. Once you’ve got your hair up, pinch and separate any twisted tresses to add volume and texture.

Get the perfect party updo hairstyle with this ghd guide on how to wear your hair up in a soft top knot.
