Beachy waves and the perfectly “undone” look aren’t really trends anymore since they’re now hairstyle go-tos in our everyday routines. Ombré is still technically a trend, but that’s recently become more of a mainstay color technique as well.
So, what constitutes a hair trend?
Trends are typically styles that you start to see everywhere seemingly overnight. It’s hard to guess how long hair trends will stick around for (crimped hair definitely outstayed it’s welcome), but there are some we know will be here to stay as soon as we see it catching on.
One of the most recent hairstyle trends to burst on to the scene, that we also happen to love, is the half up top knot. It can be styled for a chic date night look or a lazy Sunday, which was evident at the Dupont Circle farmer’s market this weekend where the messy half up top knot look made quite a few appearances, but the thing we love most about this look is how versatile it is with all hair lengths and textures.
These are some of our favorite half up top knot looks:
Blending the undone / lazy Sunday look, this top knot is the perfect look for a day walking around the city or heading to the beach.
Those curls make a statement all their own, but with the addition of a top knot, Sunita, takes her signature big hair style to new heights, and you can too.
P.S. – Her hair inspiration doesn’t stop there, go check out Sunita V.’s blog for never-ending fashion and style envy.
Pastel tresses are another trend we currently love, so pair it with a perfect tiny top knot and we’re obsessed. This picture and the next prove that the half up top knot style works for long locks and short styles.
This is that perfect date night style we were talking about. This half up top knot on an angled bob nails the chic-without-trying-to-hard-look.
While not technically a “top knot”, this half up (little bit lower than the normal) top knot was too pretty to pass up. From an alfresco dinner date to a summertime wedding, this look is a little more styled and perfect for ladies who don’t like their buns too high.
