Bunheads: Embrace the Humidity Like a Pro with These Sleek Knots

Posted by August 21, 2012 4:30 pm
Check out which celebs' top knots we're taking inspiration from right now.  

One of the most iconic wearers of the top knot, JLo has two looks: big hair or slicked back hair. This large bun on the top of her head proves that no "knot" is too big.


The Hunger Games' Amandla Stenberg chose to tackle her curls by braiding them into a knot right on the center of her head.


Another classic top knot devotee, Nicole Richie often piles her hair on top of her head for red carpet events proving that this style can literally be worn anywhere.


Julianne Hough showed how you can wear a top knot off to the side of your head and we love that laid back take.


Honestly, we don't love too much about Kim Kardashian's typical beauty looks. She goes too far with most of her makeup (and those lashes!) but her top knots are spot on.


Ashley Madekwe of "Revenge" shows how you can wear a top knot even with long bangs. Her bangs may be a touch too long, but we're loving how she rocked the look.


Gwen Stefani is another classic top knot star. Her go-to hairstyle is up and out of her face, whether she lets her hair wrap around itself or sit tall on her head.


Krysten Ritter matches the ballerina aesthetic perfectly, with a tight and sleek bun and smooth bangs.


Even if you’re not a fan of the new ABC Family show, we have to admit the ballerina theme is certainly something that is worth getting behind. From Bunheads to the reality show Breaking Pointe, watching dancers in ballet shoes and slicked back buns has started to seep into our daily beauty looks.

Celebrities from Nicole Richie to Krysten Ritter are fans of the sleek look, and it’s a great way to keep pesky flyaways out of your face when the humidity is too much for you to even bother battling. Take a cue from the above slideshow and get on board with the trend — one that easily transitions into fall. Above you’ll find some of our favorite celebrities rocking the look, in a variety of different ways.

Let us know who you think pulls off the dancer-inspired look best, and if you’ll be (or if you have been) wearing this trend to beat the heat.
