These days, the red carpets, fashion blogs, runways and celebrity mags are filled with top knots and ropey ponytails. From smooth and polished to wild and windswept, top knots are a fabulous way to add height to your look and put the focus on your pretty face. And ponytails are getting a major makeover with creative braids, twists and knots that make them a rope-like work of art. These fabulous updos are at once futuristic and primitive, wild and elegant — transitioning easily from a casual jeans ensemble to a red-carpet gown.
