It’s a super versatile style—you can make a top knot look messy, classy, sporty or chic. Go ahead and get inspired to give this carefree, and very stylish summer hairdo a shot.


  1. Kalki Koechlin – Koechlin makes a not-so-neat bun look pretty darn neat. No long-hold mousse; just naturally silky hair brushed and tied up in a top knot. Don’t sweat the flyaways.



    1. Neha Dhupia – A top knot done right makes the most of a broad forehead. Learn from Dhupia. With hair completely off the face and no loose ends, her top knot looks classy and powerful.



  1. Alia Bhatt – Loosely pull your hair back with your fingers and tie it up to recreate this too-cool-to-care top knot; no one does it better than Bhatt. It works whether you’re at the gym or meeting up with friends. We love it.



    1. Sonam Kapoor – Kapoor is lucky. Her long, luscious hair comes together to create a voluminous top knot that looks avant garde. Use extensions or a donut to cheat and make your bun look bigger and fuller.




  1. Anushka Sharma – Whoever said top knots aren’t for round faces hasn’t seen Sharma work it this elegantly. Team it with a bold mouth for a statement look.



    1. Chitrangada Singh – Parted at the centre, delicate flicks framing her face, topped off with a messy, curly bun; Singh sports a casual yet flirty top knot on the LIFW runway.



  1. Priyanka Chopra – Chopra likes her updo effortless and super comfy, for those long, tiring flights. We’re going to steal this one right away.



    1. Deepika Padukone – Padukone does it right by adding volume at the front giving her face a fuller, more empyrean look. Greek goddess anyone?



  1. Kangana Ranaut – Ranaut’s natural curls give her top knot a unique texture, best defined with an ombre hair colour.
