Fastest Top Knot Hair Tips From Professional Stylist: Backstage at Yoana Baraschi NYFW S/S 15

Want a super quick, super chic bun up top your crown, better known as the beloved top knot? Who doesn't?

Whether you're looking to hide highlights that went haywire this summer at the chorline pool, or you need an easy hairdo that won't make you late for work or school, consider this latest tutorial on the classically sophisticated style.

And did we mention this looks only needs three, count 'em three bobby pins! Talk about low maintenance!

RUSK Artistic Director Gerard Caruso made the "messy, but not so messy bun" a Fashion Week must-have at the Yoana Baraschi NYFW S/S 15 presentation. Here's how he did it:

Prep hair with the new RUSK Texture Spray.

For $18, this spray offers instant volume and fullness by enhancing hair's texture and shape. The formula maintains hair's natural sway/movement and delivers a matte finish. Gerado told us it was developed with glycerin to provide optimum moisture balance to aid in styling. 

Next, place hair in high ponytail. Then create a loop and secure with a band. Then simply twist the loop and secure the base with pins. Almost done!

Lastly, finger tease and lock in with the new RUSK Freezing Spray. For $19, use this quick-dry, humidity-resistant hairspray for extreme hold and definition without build-up. Gerado showed us how the spray also increases hair's body, suppleness and shine.  

Developed with a propellant, the formula is designed to ensure a dry application every time. Easy and oh-so done!
