Get The Look | Tokyo 2021, Olympic Up Do
Tokyo Olympics 2021 is here and the hair game is strong, sleek and powerful!
Team GB, consisting of Alice Kinsella, Amelie Morgan, and twins Jennifer and Jessica Gadirova, leap-frogged Italy late on to secure a bronze medal in the women's team gymnastics for the first time since 1928. And we are loving the slick back easy top knots they have chosen.
Bad hair day? Not to worry. Quickly pull yourself together with this classic, practical hair up! If it's good enough for olympic medalists, it's good enough for us!
Of course, the topknot is nothing new. We’ve all been sporting this look since long ago when Kendall Jenner dished out this chic, sleek, sport luxe hair style on the runway.
Still trying to nail this sport-luxe vibe? KEEP READING ;)
This look works best if your hair is smooth to begin with (even better if its on the verge of greasy - we won't judge), but a bit of texture is fine too—you’ll be pulling the bun taut, which will flatten any kinks out in the hair.
- First, flip your head over and brush your hair into a high ponytail. If you have a boar bristle hair brush, these are amazing at getting all those wispy hairs slicked down without creating frizz.
- Now, wrap the ends of your ponytail around the base of the bun, and pin it into the bun with a bobby pin or if you prefer use a satin scrunchie.
- Finish off with a spritz of hair spray and walah.. sleek chic bun accomplished!!
