Get the Look: Rashida Jones’ Winter Wardrobe-Approved Topknot

By now, it’s probably obvious that we’re huge fans of the topknot. Anyone who hates having to wash their hair every day will agree. And with so many different types of knots to achieve, throwing your hair up will never get old. Celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath, who created Rashida Jones’ topknot for last night’s Big Hero 6 premiere, taught us that now is the time to really rock the style. "We were inspired by the high neck and coolness of her electric blue pantsuit to create a braided messy topknot,” she said. Think about it: A topknot is the ideal style to wear with big, bulky scarves, high neck tops and turtlenecks because it keeps your strands away from the neck area (complementing the clothes) and won't leave your hair with a case of static. That’s why we’ll be recreating Jones’ cool braided knot very often during the frigid months. Here, Heath gives us a full breakdown of the look.

    Create a Ponytail

    “Once the hair was dry, I sectioned off the front near the top of one ear to the other. Using a fine tooth comb and a light spray of R+Co Outer Space Hairspray, I pulled the hair up into a ponytail at the top of the section. I then pulled the front section back and sprayed with more R+Co, adding it to the ponytail, leaving only the bangs out.”

    Braid & Pin

    “The trick to a perfect ponytail is pulling it up in sections,” Heath says. “I broke the pony into five sections, braiding three and lightly teasing two. I wrapped each section around the base of the ponytail and pinned them into place, creating a braided messy topknot.”

    Finish with Hairspray

    “Once the hair was up, I round brushed the bangs to fall to one side. Then, I sprayed the bangs and bun with Leonor Greyl Laque Souple for added hold and shine."
