How-To: The Gold-Leaf Topknot

For whimsical elegance that will stun, Miami-based Master Stylist Raphael Reboh, owner of Femme Coiffure Salon provides simple steps for creating the gold-leaf topknot.

Reboh has styled a-list tresses including Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, Joan Collins, Adriana Lima, Bianca Jagger and even the late Joan Rivers. Femme Coiffure has locations in Bal Harbor, The Ritz Carlton and is soon opening in Miami’s Design District.

“This style is the epitome of chic elegance,” Reboh says. “And, what I love is that it so easy to do but looks like it took a lot of time.”

1. Start with straight, dry hair. Long, fine or thick hair is best for this style. Part hair to the side and pull into a high ponytail.

2. Next, simply wrap hair around pony tail to create a bun and then pin the end inside the ponytail.

3. Finish this look with an elegant headband.
