Simple but sophisticated topknot is back for summer

Posted by elegant On July - 28 - 2015

The humidity and higher temperatures during the summer presents challenges when it comes to your hair. Your body energy is low during this time of the year and it is difficult to keep your hair straight and tamed. As a result many hair fashions come into play during hot summer months.

One hair style that is easy to maintain during summer months is a simple knot that we call topknot. For centuries this has been the easiest to do and fit the busy life perfectly due to less work involved. For this summer it comes back with a sophisticated twist. It has a sleek finish and the shape gets a bit rigid. You will not see any lose hair. To get a topknot, start with your hair like in a ponytail on the top of your head, base located on the very top of your head. You can either twist your ponytail or rope braid it by twisting two sections together. The twist can be continued to the end of your hair to get a bun shape. Securing the bun is easy with hairpins, bobby pins or an elastic strip. In order to keep it in place, make sure to spray it with ample hairspray.

A right hair cut can make a big difference in your image. Where people are spending bundles of money on plastic surgery to improve the look, a right haircut could improve your look at a fraction of a cost of plastic surgery. Next time when you go for your haircut, ask few questions from your stylist.

Your hairstylist is also your image consultant. They are trained to study your facial and bone structure and recommend suitable hair ideas for your consideration. Some are with large ears, square jaw, or high cheek bones. Stylists are trained to look into details of cranium. Not just the facial structure, hair stylist also studies the structure of your hair. Texture and density or thickness of your hair and the hairline are important factors. This study combined with other information such as height and shape of a person and personal preferences should weigh in on the type of haircut. This is when the stylist becomes an artist. He or she can transform a person by creating a style unique to that person which enhances the overall look. Keep in mind, at the end the haircut should complement many of the facial as well as non-facial considerations of you.
