Sexy spring waves are one of our favorite looks for spring and summer, but the temperature is rising and in the heat long, flowy locks are not always ideal. So if you’re in need of another quick and easy hairstyle, take a cue from Hollywood’s hottest stars (Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Munn, Jennifer Lopez ) and try a topknot bun.

This ballerina-inspired updo has quickly become an effortless and chic look for celebrities and real women, alike. But the best part is, you can achieve this style in just minutes at home. Here’s how:

1. On air-dried hair, apply a thickening spray from root to end. 

2. Next, flip your head over and use a paddle brush to pull hair into a high ponytail and secure with a hair tie.

3. Twist hair into a bun, securing with bobby pins to keep hair in place.

4. The key to this look is making sure there are no flyaways, so smooth hair from the nape of the neck up and around the hairline by spraying a brush with a strong hold hairspray and brushing hair into place. Try UNITE Session Max Hairspray ($30).
