When actress Teyonah Parris stepped onto the Emmy Awards red carpet recently we couldn’t help but admire her gorgeous updo! Based on the classic topknot, the star gave the look her own spin by adding graceful twists and turns to the regal look. Craft a similar style profile by fashioning a high ponytail. Be sure to keep the base sleek with the help of edge control gel or pomade. Secure the ponytail with a covered elastic band and divide it into 2-3 sections. Working with one section at a time, twist each section and pin securely. Repeat the process until all sections are twisted and pinned into place. The result is a free-form topknot nestled at center crown. Now, go out and own that red carpet!
