We're fans of the topknot, but is it right for fancy events?

We’re totally fans of the topknot, but the messy topknot? Now that’s up for debate.

Our favorite stars have been rocking beachy waves, boho braids and even some unpolished updos on the red carpet lately (and we love it!), but the unkempt topknot looks exactly how it sounds: unkempt.

Ashley Tisdale and Julianne Hough both tried the hairstyle recently, and while we can appreciate the ease of the ‘do and the “I’m not trying too hard” vibe, it just doesn’t seem to mesh well with a gorgeous gown.

In our opinion, the look is much better suited for a low-key outfit, like denim cutoffs paired with a T-shirt and boots. Why wear a knockout dress — like both starlets did — and make it less formal with a less-than-perfect hairstyle? What do you think of the hairdo? Is it right for the red carpet or better suited for the daytime? Vote in our poll below!
