“A top knot is the easiest style for hot summer days,” says Nicole Leal, master stylist at NINE ZERO ONE Salon. “J.Lo makes this look so chic and is the queen of this ever-evolving trend.” Best of all, this style works well for all face shapes, and there’s lots of room for variety. You can leave a little hair out around the face to make things softer, or you can make it tight (a la Jenny from the Block) for a sleek, sophisticated look.

What you need:

  • A boar brush (we like the Long by Valery Joseph, $60, net-a-porter.com).
  • Humidity-resistant spray (Leal loves Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray, $39, violetgrey.com).
  • A strong elastic band (use one that matches your hair color).
  • A few bobby pins.

What to do:

  • Brush hair into place.
  • Spray a humidity-resistant spray and smooth hair again.
  • Grab your hair as if you were putting it into a ponytail above the round of your head. Then, wrap your bun into place and secure with a rubber band.
  • For more control, use bobby pins to keep everything in place.
  • Spray hair one last time.

Now go tie the knot, girl. And stay cool.
