Rachel McAdams Topknot Tutorial

Get Rachel McAdams's Chic Topknot With Tips Straight From Her Stylist


You know that effortless topknot you love to wear to the grocery store or the gym? Last night, Rachel McAdams proved that you can play up that casual look for any occasion — even the red carpet. "I love a topknot, and I'm so happy this trend is sticking around; they're young, cool, and supermodern," said celebrity stylist Mark Townsend, who created the style.

To get this look at home, start by spritzing your roots with Dove Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo ($5) for added texture. Pull your hair into a ponytail just in front of the crown and use Sally Hershberger Genius Spray Wax ($15) on the length of the pony. Next, twist hair around the base of the elastic, tucking in ends and securing with bobby pins. Townsend recommends crisscrossing the pins to secure and spraying them with dry shampoo. The starch in the product takes away the shine, making them less noticeable and also giving them a tighter grip. After pulling out a few flyaways and adding a satin ribbon, Rachel was set for an evening out. You'll never underestimate the glamour of a topknot again.
