All eyes were on actress Keke Palmer’s glittering gold gown by Yousef Aljasmi at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards and perhaps the best way to accentuate an outfit that does most of the talking is to get the hair up and out of the face—but in an elegant way. Keep scrolling to learn how celeb stylist Ann Jones (@ann_joneshair) created this sleek topknot without a single flyaway in sight!


Artist: Ann Jones
Manufacturer: Matrix, @matrix

Products Used



Start by applying a quarter-sized amount of Matrix Total Results Miracle Creator Multi-Tasking Hair Treatment throughout damp hair and blow dry.


Once dry, apply Matrix Total Results Curl Please Contouring Lotion on the ends for light definition and nourishment and Matrix Total Results High Amplify Wonder Boost Root Lifter in the root area for a flexible hold.


To add extra shine to the hair cuticles, run a ½-inch flat iron through the edges to create sleekness for the clean ponytail.


Pull the hair back into a tight ponytail with a black elastic, then finish with Matrix Total Results High Amplify Flexible Hold Hairspray to hold the hair in place all night and eliminate flyaways.
