Behind the scenes at Lakme Fashion Week 2013, Lakme Senior Artists were hard at work creating some stunning looks for the designers. One of them- dark, ruby red lips, simple eyeliner and oodles of false lashes complete with a top knot !

Here is how to get a simple fool-proof top knot courtesy Lakme!



Part your hair horizontally and  pull your hair back into a pony tail.



Secure your pony tail with a rubber band. Quick tip- the hair stylists back stage dont use rubber bands the way we do- they dont open it up and put your hair through the loop- they put the rubber band around the pony tail in a circular fashion and secure the rubber band with a pin!

Wrap the braid around the top of your hair into concentric circles so you have a little bun at the top. Secure with pins.

Step 7: Sweep the flat ironed hair onto a side



Use the same falttened strand of hair to wrap your bun and secure.


Add some ruby red lip color ! The Lakme Artists were using combinations of the Lakme Lip Palette !

Hi Anam,
Basically we guys put our hair through the hole in the rubber band, these guys use a rubber band like a thread almost . They tak the hair, and flattern the rubber band and wrap the rubber band around the pony tail, and make both ends of the band meet with a pin.
