Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie

Although we’ll always love polished ballerina buns, sky-high spooled top knots are totally on trend this season. Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie both turned heads this week when they stepped out sporting the hair-raising ‘do. To get the look, sweep hair into a high pony at the top of your head and tie with a clear elastic. Twist upward and begin pinning. Add shine drops if you’re looking for a super-sleek crown. Depending on how textured you want your bun, celebrity stylist Mitch Stone suggests adding a braid for a more glamorous look. “If you’re looking for some punch, add extensions to build the ‘do higher,” he says.
