Hair Tutorial: Olivia Palermo's braided top knot

Hair Tutorial: Olivia Palermo's braided top knot

by Paige Exell -

On October 26th, ELLE magazine celebrated its 30th anniversary in Madrid, Spain. For the occasion, fashionistas and it-girls alike took over the red carpet looking more stylish than ever. Among the VIP guests was socialite Olivia Palermo who caught our eye with a chic black and white ensemble. She complimented her white blazer with a pretty black ribbon around her neck, and a braided top knot in her hair.

Since we're always looking for new ways to re-invent the classic top knot, Get The Look has decided to take inspiration from Olivia and help you achieve the look for yourself!

HAIR TUTORIAL: BRAIDED TOP KNOT

We love that this hairstyle is both a mixture of elegant and casual and can be worn to the office, a dinner date, or even the gym. For texture like Olivia's, start by applying a few drops of hair oil or serum onto your hair. Then, spray a matte, texture spray to create the dishevelled look near the root. Scrunch it gently into your hair to get that slightly messy texture on top.

STEP 1

Once you've prepped your hair, place it up in a high ponytail on top of your head. Secure with an elastic.

STEP 2

Spray your ponytail with a satin finish hairspray to ensure a braid that lasts. Then, divide the hair into three equal sections and create a tight, classic style braid. Secure your braid with a small transparent elastic.

STEP 3

Take the braid, and wrap it around the base of your ponytail creating a bun shape. Once you've achieved your desired shape, secure with bobby pins.

STEP 4

For a romantic and slightly casual look, release a few strands of hair at your ears and around your face.

STEP 5

Finish off your look with a generous amount of hairspray!
