If your hair is long enough to put into a topknot, chances are, you've got a go-to technique that you could do in your sleep. We're not trying to mess with that—you get those long locks out of your face the best way you know how. 

That being said: For many of us around here, wearing the same high bun every day of summer gets real, old real fast. So, we asked hairstylist Monae Everett to swing by our office and come up with new ways we can throw our hair up. Sure, they're a little more complicated than the one-and-done knot of yore, but we're up for the challenge. Click through if you are, too.
