The ‘Top Knot' Hairstyle Goes from Casual to Messy Chic

— July 20, 2009 — Fashion
The Top Knot is the latest in lazy up-dos for the hip and possibly sleep deprived. That isn’t to say that the crown adorning bun isn’t cute; it is, in fact, a very convenient style as it is attractive in a slightly bizarre way as well as a handy little way to pull hair up out of the face.

The style was first spotted on Swedish singer Lykke Li who has been gaining attention since 2007. Her Top Knot is best seen in her 2008 “Little Bit” music video. Since her emergence, she has been a bit of an unconventional style icon and the ripple effect from her Top Knot has been seen on the runway, in look books, in editorials, and in mass on the streets of New York (particularly the ones leading to Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, if you catch my drift).

Refinery29 wrote about the Top Knot in an August 2008 post, sighting its Stockholm origins. wrote about the Top Knot in June 2009.

The Top Knot works with all hair types, so long as the hair is lengthy, which is the beauty of this casual look. The Top Knot can be slick and tight, loose and wavy, off center, enormous, etc. 

This paired down style is par for the course of keeping it casual in a fashion climate where being showy is passe. The Top Knot looks parts modern, casual, and chic. It is the perfect accompaniment to grocery shopping sweats or a cocktail hour frock and that versatility is attractive.
