Nape knots are a popular summertime choice among the fashion set and and it’s easy to see why. Situated lower on the head, these updos allow for a very regal effect. A gorgeous display of pure class, it’s a functional hairstyle that helps you work with what you have instead of what you don’t. As shown by leading ladies like Jennifer Lawrence and Nicole Kidman, the nape knot is open to interpretation and all are welcome to wear their own version. — jpw
