Marie Claire’s pick of the top knots!

Marie Claire just posted this pick of ‘top knot’ styles to itsĀ Facebook page!

The magazine bills this classic, easy up do as the perfect drizzly weather styling option, but it’s also a great ‘dressed up’ choice, too, as these pictures show.

I had something not far off the lower style as my wedding hair look, and I think it would still be there, perfectly in tact, today – so cemented in place it was with hairspray!! – if I’d never washed it!

As with ponytails, though, I think sometimes the best ones happen naturally and when you’re not looking (in the mirror, that is!).

In case you missed them, here are some top knot styling tips I shared earlier in the summer, and also a hot link to a how-to for creating an easy sock bun!

Oh, and not forgetting! The ultimate, ‘ouch-free’ ponytail bands are these!!

Happy styling, mamas!!

    I'm a beauty and lifestyle writer and juggle-from-home mama (the Italian genes explain the mad hair and love of bronzer). I've written for a wide range of British glossies, newspapers and weekend supplements, along with many beauty and lifestyle websites.
