A chic topknot or bun can always be accessorized with a great accent. Using jewels, pins, barrettes, or wire to wrap the bun/topknot can add a pop of color to your hair. It is always fun to experiment with how a hair accessory can compliment an updo and using wire or thread is also an unexpected way to maintain the shape of your style.
