The topknot has cemented its place as an It-girl hairstyling staple, and Kendall Jenner has mastered the 'do. The perfect way to finish off the model-off-duty look, the Kendall Jenner topknot reads as effortless and cool, but it's still sleek and sophisticated enough to look like you didn't just throw up your unwashed hair. Though certainly stylish, this low-key hair look is typically reserved for downtime and days off. But leave it to Jenner to bring her signature off-duty hair straight to the Cannes red carpet (and pull it off).
Jenner's brushed-back updo was the perfect complement to her billowing floral gown and its endless train. The juxtaposition between her middle part and the asymmetry of the dress, as well as between the updo's slick, modern sensibilities and the dress's romantic, feminine vibe, played up the drama on the red carpet. The topknot was a tight twist with a shoot of straight hair falling down the back, underscoring the ease of the off-duty look.
