How to Copy Rachel McAdams Hair

Get Rachel McAdams's Chic Top Knot With Tips Straight From Her Stylist

You know that effortless top knot you love to wear to the supermarket or the gym? Yesterday, Rachel McAdams proved that you can play up that casual look for any occasion — even the red carpet. "I love a top knot, and I'm so happy this trend is sticking around; they're young, cool, and super-modern," said celebrity stylist Mark Townsend, who created the style. To get this look at home, start by spritzing your roots with Klorane Dry Shampoo ($12.99) for added texture. Pull your hair into a ponytail just in front of the crown and use Redken Wax Blast Spray ($24.95) on the length of the pony. Next, twist hair around the base of the elastic, tucking in ends and securing with bobby pins. Townsend recommends crisscrossing the pins to secure and spraying them with dry shampoo. The starch in the product takes away the shine, making them less noticeable and also giving them a tighter grip. After pulling out a few flyaways and adding a satin ribbon, Rachel was set for an evening out. You'll never underestimate the glamour of a top knot again.
