Top knots are a daily 'do around the R29 office, and while we're all for the no-fuss style, we're starting to tire of it. Hey, don't get us wrong! We're just saying that it could use some zhushing. That's why we're updating the look with two easy braids and giving you the know-how to master it yourself.
The trick is to work in a bit of Neutrogena® Triple Repair Fortifying Leave-In Treatment, part of the Neutrogena® Triple Repair Hair Care system, to strengthen strands as you're styling 'em. Even though you're not using heat here, keeping your tresses healthy with the shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in treatment trio is just as important as the hairstyle you're replicating.
Learn how to take your knot up a notch with two simple plaits in the video above, and don't be surprised if you find yourself braiding on the reg.
