A lifesaver when it’s literally too hot to function.
What you’ll need
There aren’t enough praises to be sung about the knotted bun, especially during hot, humid weather. This simple yet chic hairstyle is a quintessential summer staple, and is one of those quick looks that always seems appropriate, no matter the occasion—making it the perfect day-to-night look.
A knotted bun hairstyle is also a baby-step easier than its more diva-ish cousin, the top knot. The latter, though fashionable, may look and feel tighter and more uncomfortable, particularly for those who don’t necessarily want that much of a facelift or are sensitive to scalp tension. Knotted buns on the other hand, are slightly looser, therefore making it the lazy-sexy updo of choice for brunches, dancefloor throwdowns, hangovers and general life-living. Which, as you can see, are just, like, all the most relevant boxes ever.
