Kendall Jenner Topknot

It’s no secret that Kendall Jenner dominated the red carpet at this weekend’s American Music Awards with her bold debut of bangs with a super high topknot. 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!” Etienne breaks down how to recreate the look below…

Kendall Jenner Bangs Topknot


1. “Use KMS California ADD VOLUME styling foam while the hair is damp and roughly blow dried her hair.

2. Use KMS California HAIR PLAY messing cream throughout the hair to start creating a build up of texture.

3. Pull the hair up into a pony, then twist the hair into a fun top knot, securing with bobby pins.

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