Perfecting a well-executed hairstyle can be the one of the toughest tasks in your entire beauty routine. If hot tools have proven to be overly time-consuming and walking out the door with air-dried texture just isn't an option, Kourtney Kardashian's topknot is worth adding to your repertoire. This quick and easy slick-back will add a high-fashion aspect to even the most casual look — plus, it holds all day and night.
The eldest Kardashian sister was photographed leaving Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood on Weds. wearing one of her sleekest styles ever. The mother-of-three pulled her long, jet black hair into a super-glossy bun. Rather than combing the topknot towards the top of her head, Kardashian took a different approach by securing the bun a few inches below her crown.
The hairstyle was made even easier by foregoing a middle or side part, a step in the styling process that can require a few rounds of trial and error. Instead, her hair was brushed straight back, emphasizing the glossy finish as well as her chiseled bone structure.
Kardashian's full going-out ensemble confirms the fact that this refined hairstyle can elevate any look. She paired the smooth pull-back with gray denim, a colorful mesh top, and minimal jewelry. In an effort to keep with the glowing theme, her makeup focused on dewy skin, nude lips, and thick lashes.
Celebrity hairstylist and long-time member of the Kardashian glam squad, Andrew Fitz Simmons, took to Instagram to post a photo of his latest creation on Tues. This time sporting a bold, red lip, Kardashian's slick-back set the stage for her makeup to truly pop. A tight bun is the ultimate backdrop for a daring makeup look, whether you're experimenting with a smoky eye, a dynamic cut-crease, or a bright lip.
The best part? This style is beyond easy to recreate, even without the help of an accomplished Hollywood stylist.
Begin by raking your favorite gel or pomade throughout towel-dried hair. Once your roots are saturated, use a soft-bristled brush to pull it back into a ponytail. Secure the style with a hair band, then wrap the ponytail to create a twist.
Once you've set the bun with another hair band or bobby pins, spray a strong hold hairspray onto your fingertips and smooth any fly-aways. For an even glossier look, finish it off with a few spritzes of shine spray. Below, shop a handful of helpful products to create a time-saving slick-back inspired by Kardashian.
