Top knots are still trending but try an off-kilter approach. Twist your strands into a traditional knot on the side of your head. Lightly pull on the sides of the poof for extra volume.
Grab a patterned silk scarf and wrap it around your low pony. Let the tail end fly free for a chic tube effect.
If you’re looking for a simple way to add sparkle, just push back your strands on one side with a glitzy barrette for an instant, cute easy hairstyle.
Rocking short hair? Pull it back with a bejeweled headband. Add in coordinating gemstone earrings for an OTT look worthy of New Year’s Eve.
Bobby pins used to be just for hidden support. Now they’re the highlight. Position several gold pins around your part, then push in matching ones perpendicular to the original rows.
Craft a headband from some wide velvet ribbon. Tie it into a bow in the back to add polish to any ‘do.
Create three spaced braids starting at your forehead stretching back to cover your crown. Instead of continuing the braids, gather them into a slick pony starting at the nape of the neck.

Slick back the top half of hair with gel for a wet-look effect. But leave the rest of strands free-flowing for a super sleek style.
Nothing jazzes up a low pony like a big barrette. Just form your hair into a low-slung tail, wrap some strands around the elastic and slip in a barrette right above the base.
Frame your face with a baby braid on each side. The look’s even subtler when your strands are tucked behind your ears.
This ‘do looks complex, but it’s actually a pretty easy hairstyle. Take two sections of hair and make two pigtails on top of the rest of your strands. Make sure you tie off the base of the tails with elastics. Then wrap a third elastic around the tails and the excess strands to form one unified low pony.
Tease the crown for amped up volume before rolling your hair into a low bun. The messier the bun, the better.
For this super-cute easy hairstyle, center part hair, then place a golden barrette on each side, angled upward.
Gather your top layer of hair into a half pony. Twist the elastic around a few times, but on the last go-round, pull the tail through for a no-fuss loop.
Take textured, center-parted hair and split your mane down the middle before creating two braids. Pull each braid to loosen them up, then pile the braids on top of your head, securing with hair pins. Leave a few strands loose to frame your face.
Most top knots involve gathering hair up tight to form the ‘do. Try keeping things loose by just twisting your bun in place.
