ELIZABETH BANKS looked super chic at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards when she hit the red carpet in her Elie Saab jumpsuit! The 38-year-old actress was a big winner that night when she took home the award for “Best Transformation” for her role as Effie Trinket in “The Hunger Games”.

To give her a ‘winning’ look, hairstylist Jenny Cho wanted to give her a “young and cool, but put together” look to compliment her fierce jumpsuit. The result? A sky-high, glamorous take on the popular “top knot” trend.

The steps to recreating this look are quite easy, and Jenny shared her quick tips with The Fashion Court!

STEP 1: Blow dry with Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Leave-In Conditioner and the Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smooth and Shine Serum, and finger dry with tension with a blow dryer to smooth, add shine and protect hair from the heat.

STEP 2: Apply Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo to add texture and pull all the hair to the crown area for a high ponytail with a mix boar brush. Once the desire height has been achieved, make a ponytail with a holder.

STEP 4: Split hair into two section and tie a knot. Leave the ends free, but tuck some under and secure with u-pins and bobby pins so it doesn’t look too perfect.

STEP 5: Tame down any fly aways with Suave Professionals Touchable Finish Lightweight Hold Styling Spray and you’re good to go!

Will you be testing out this Effie-approved ‘do?
