    Prep Your Hair

    Start by applying a quarter-sized dollop of TRESemmé One-Step Smooth Cream to damp hair. This product is designed to smooth and 24-hour frizz control with the added benefits of heat protection and glossy shine. Rough dry your hair with your hands, ensuring the product is evenly distributed.


    Create a High Ponytail

    Next, pull your hair up into a high ponytail. This will be the base of your top knot. Ensure it's secure but not too tight to avoid unnecessary tension on your scalp.


    Apply Extra Hold Gel

    Apply TRESemmé Extra Hold Gel to your ponytail. Use a mini brush to slick back any flyaways and give your hair a sleek, polished look. This gel provides a long-lasting hold without making your hair stiff or sticky.


    Twist into a Bun

    Twist your ponytail into a bun, leaving out a few pieces for a more relaxed look. Secure your bun with pins, ensuring it's secure but still has a bit of movement.


    Lock in Your Look

    Finish your top knot with TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray. This will lock in your style and keep your top knot looking fresh and sleek all day. Simply spray evenly over your hair, focusing on the bun and any loose pieces.
