DIY Hollywood's Favorite Casual Top Knot

Hair DIY Hollywood's Favorite Casual Top Knot(Source: Amy Frances)We noticed a trend popping up among celebs lately: Half updos are back. But not just any half updo will do. We've spotted a number of celebs from Kate Mara to Ashley Tisdale rocking a mini half-up top knot. Although you might be tempted to just make a little loop and call it a day, there's an equally quick way to create this 'do that takes almost no time and looks infinitely more stylish. We called in our friends at Latest-Hairstyles and Jenny Strebe from The Confessions of a Hairstylist to get the how-to for mastering this 'do every time.

Tools You'll Need
Dry Shampoo
Clear elastic
Three to four bobby pins
Light hold hairspray

Steps
1. Use your fingers to part your hair, creating a crescent shape around the temple.
