    Prep Your Curls

    Begin by lightly misting your hair with water to refresh your curls and make them more manageable. This step helps in smoothing out your hair and preparing it for styling.


    Create a High Ponytail

    Gather all your hair into a high ponytail at the crown of your head. Secure it with a hair tie, making sure it's tight enough to hold your curls but not so tight that it causes discomfort.


    Form Your Top Knot

    Twist your ponytail into a bun shape, wrapping it around the base of the ponytail. Use bobby pins to secure the bun in place, ensuring that it stays put throughout the day.


    Sleek and Smooth

    Apply TRESemmé Extra Hold Gel to any flyaways and use a mini brush to slick down your hair and edges. This will give your top knot a polished look and keep those curls defined and in control.


    Set Your Style

    Finish off your top knot with a spritz of TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray. This will lock in your style, ensuring your top knot withstands the elements and stays flawless all day long.
