Cutler/Redken NYC Salon Hair How-To

Jenny Balding
NYC Salon, Fashion Week & Editorial Stylist

I may be a "hard-core curl~gurl", but here is one signature hairstyle that you will see me in either at home, running errands, the beach - anywhere and anytime that I need all this hair off my face! Well, the Top Knot is the ideal style for any occasion as it can easily be paired with a dressed up or down ensemble for the perfect look. Jenny Balding, NYC Cutler/Redken Stylist, shares how to achieve this look:

Simple hair how-to

  • For best results, start with day two hair onwards as your hair will be easier to manage with an already 'lived -in' texture.
  • Mist hair with dry shampoo, focusing primarily on the roots mainly – this will give your hair more texture, grip and volume.
  • Then mist a light hairspray throughout for some hold and grip.
  • Sweep your hair into high ponytail. Keep checking what it looks like from your profile so you position ponytail in the most flattering point of your head for your face shape.
  • Take the ponytail and back-brush from the underneath lightly – this creates a slight disheveled texture.
  • Sweep around the base of the ponytail and pin using U shaped hairpins. These really anchor the hair best which means you will only need 2 or 3 to secure.
  • This creates perfectly disheveled topknot that looks ultra stylish and works for any event.
