Festival Hair: 2.0 Top Knots

Official proof that braids and clip-in baubles aren’t required at festivals, double top knots are popping up on the music scene faster than we can say “Doc Marten”. A ‘90s rave-style redux, top knots are day-three perfection because they work best in textured (read: messy) strands. We get it. You’re skeptical of the look. But the logic behind it is solid. All of your tresses are safely tied back so you can head-bang the days and nights away without worrying about whip-induced temporary blindness. Not to mention, it’s perfect for camouflaging a bad hair day.


Festival Hair 2.0: Boho Meets Sophisticated with My Fash Avenue’s Deanne Wilder

Fatigued by florals? Medulla & Co.’s Matthew Crossland’s effortless take on hair tapestry is elevating a not-so-everyday look to new heights. From canvas to coif, tapestry is the earthy relative of your Grandma’s pastime that quickly went from festival scene to mainstream. The best part? Colour and pattern possibilities are endless, which means you can create a weave that’s uniquely you—whether you’re brunching indoors or moshing in the field.
Festival Hair 2.0: Toronto Blogger Margaux Zanetti Goes High Impact in a Top Knot

There’s no question that the top knot remains on the rise. Just ask famed cool girls Gwen Stefani, Daria Werbowy and Dakota Fanning. Today, we’re showcasing some fearless fashion and our latest hair obsession in this collaboration is between talented Medulla & Co. hairstylist Alex (see her styling prowess on Instagram here) and Toronto lifestyle blogger Margaux Zanetti. Margaux is the latest blogger to catch our eye, and for good reason. Her blog, which can only be described as the lovechild of Martha Stewart and Alexa Chung, showcases Zanetti’s latest fashion finds and mouth-watering recipes – all written with a whiff of contemporary Canadiana. As an added bonus, like all of us here at Medulla & Co., Margaux is a big fan of choosing wisely when it comes to beauty products, so we just had to show her our holistic approach to hair care firsthand.
