The smartest hairstyle for dealing with warmer weather is arguably the top knot, but it’s not always the easiest thing to pull off without using a ton of clips and pins.

Luckily, we teamed up with Herbal Essences and hairstylist Wesley O’Meara, who walked us through the entire top knot process for any hair type. Above he shows us what products to use and what steps to take if you have naturally curly hair and how to take it up a level — literally.

If you have straight hair, check out the corresponding links for a top knot style, and check back later this week to learn how to get a top knot if you have thick hair!
