Create the Look: Kendall Jenner's Top Knot

Kendall Jenner rocked a chic top knot with an edgy flair of side swept bangs on the red carpet of last night’s American Music Awards. Celebrity hairstylist, Etienne Ortega, created this sleek top knot look with the help of KMS California products. "My inspiration for Kendall's look was a funky modern top knot with a wispy bang, that goes perfect with her high neck dress!" Here's the scoop from Ortega on how to get Kendall's red carpet look:

Step 1: Ortega used KMS California ADD VOLUME styling foam while the hair was damp and roughly blow dried her hair.

Step 2: Ortega used the KMS California HAIR PLAY messing cream, putting a quarter size amount in his palms and worked it all throughout the hair to start creating a build up of texture.

Step 3: Then Ortega put her hair up into a pony, followed by twisting the hair into a fun top knot.

Step 4: To finish the look he used the KMS California HAIR PLAY playable texture to make her bangs textured, piecey and ready to hit the red carpet.
