Bangs + bun = instant chic

Music star Beyonce (who just started an Instagram account and also has a Tumblr account), has posted these terrific coif inspirations that are both simple and chic: the towering topknot!

In one photo, Bey rocks an un-done bun with some brow-kissing bangs. The topknot is pinned up casually, allowing a few strands to escape for texture. For another version of the look, the superstar slicks bangs back and keeps the topknot smooth and sleek.

Both looks can easily be done on
long to mid-length tresses
and are perfect for those days
when you just have to rush out
the door!

Towering topknot!
