How To: Julianne Hough’s People’s Choice Awards Sleek Top Knot

How To: Julianne Hough’s People’s Choice Awards Sleek Top Knot

Posted by Taylor deDiego on Jan 7th 2016

We’re a big fan of the top knot for both functional and aesthetic reasons. So when celebrity hairstylist Riawna Capri created this sleek top knot on Julianne Hough for the People’s Choice Awards, we ooh-ed and ahh-ed aloud. The architectural upstyle was the perfect complement to Julianne’s sexy, yet sophisticated off-the-shoulder dress.

Consider trying this look on this weekend by following these simple steps:

  • Pull hair into a high, tight ponytail and slick back with a strong hold gel like, Super Clean Sculpting Gel® to control texture and enhance the "wet-look" of the style.
  • Split the ponytail into two pieces and wrap them around each other in opposite directions   to create the twisted top knot formation, and pin hair into place leaving the ends out.
  • Enhance the piecey texture of the extra hair by running the Neuro® Smooth over the pieces and using a small amount of Dry Wax™  for control to make pieces pop.

Sounds do-able, right? Show us your interpretation of the style on Instagram or Twitter with #IHeartPM.
