If the buns we have recently spotted on the runway are any indication of the direction that top knots are going, count us in. Now, don’t get us wrong; nothing is new under the sun.

Top Knot Rules You Need to Know
1. Baby hair matters.
While it is evident that everyone has baby hairs on their radar, the looks from the runway proved that this is far from a trend—which many of us already knew thanks to black culture. However, if you haven’t learned how to groom your hair around your hairline, it’s time for some tools of the trade. Read our handy guide on how to groom your baby hairs and be sure to use a sculpting gel, like Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel, to get that perfect S-shape going.
2. Sleek is in.
A good messy bun is cool and all, but nothing is as clean as a sleek updo. Smooth hair down with your go-to gel or pomade to create the look. Don’t have one? Start with Bed Head by TIGI Stick. This bad boy helps you lay your strands down and it’s travel-friendly.
3. Get your twirl on.
No, we don’t mean to spin around in circles. We want you to spin the length of your hair until you get the perfect coil! Donut buns are out, twirled buns are in!
4. All hair textures and braids are included.
It doesn’t matter if you have super straight hair, waves, curls, box braids or even cornrows. One of the most important top knot rules to know is that everyone can get in on the action.
