The top knot and the half-up top knot are my go-to styles for summer. I wanted to quickly share some of the products you can use to keep your locks in place, and some other ways to dress-up your ‘do so you don’t look like you just rolled out of bed.
Begin by smoothing your strands with the Revlon Scalp Sensations brushes. The only brush collection sold at mass with extra-large ball tips – 3x’s the normal size. The extra-large bristle ends feel so good on the scalp and back of the neck.
Depending on the type of look you’re going for, you can create a tousled texture-look with the Revlon 1″ Soft-Feel Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron. Ion technology delivers maximum hair conditions ions for frizz-free styles. ($24.99/ULTA) Doing this before you pull your hair up gives it a less put-together look.
If it’s a sleek style you’re after, try the Revlon Soft Pulse Silicone Straightener. Soft pulse technology helps heat penetrate hair for faster styling. This innovative tool provides a gentle glide over your strands to reduce breakage, and sleek, smooth gorgeous styles are easily attainable. ($29.99/Amazon)
Create effortless buns in a snap with the Revlon Sophist-o-twist. Made of soft velvet material that is gentle on the hair, no clips or pins needed. ($6.79/Target) You can find some great tutorials on the Revlon YouTube channel.
While the description says effortless, if you have layers or lots of little flyaways, you’ll need a little help with this product. Every time I try to make a “perfect” bun, it ends up turning into more of a messy bun. I like that look, though, so I usually just roll with it. If you have long straight hair, the Sophist-o-twist will create that perfect ballerina bun that you’re after. Otherwise, try using some hairspray and bobby pins.
For the half-up top knot, you can keep your ‘do in place with the Revlon Double Grip Clips. These new Revlon clips offer all day hold in thick and think hair. The comb teeth provide a stronger hold, and the grip dots will hold the clips in place. ($3.99/Target)
Lastly, add a touch of girly glam with any one of Revlon’s head bands of hair accessories. From pearl studded headbands to jeweled combs, the possibilities are endless. In other words, we know you just rolled out of bed and threw your hair up. Disguise that look with some cute hair accessories. (Starting at $3.99/Target, Bed Bath and Beyond, etc)
