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.
