The Top Knot – Tutorial for Lazy Girls


This must be a love at first sight! The cute high bun is a beautiful way to style hair for any upcoming event in just a few minutes. In reality, there are certain steps that you need to follow to achieve the messy effect. In theory, the top knot is the easiest updo to pull off. While it is certainly a simple way to battle a bad hair day, it is not as easy as it sounds. Lucky for you, this tutorial is here to rescue you! The top knot look is sophisticated yet casual, easy and versatile – who wouldn’t say no to that!

Brush all of your hair into a high ponytail. Then, pull your hair into a loose ponytail, as high or as low as you’d like it. Don’t use a comb or worry about your strands being perfectly slicked back—the look is effortless.

For best results, tie your ponytail with “invisibobble” elastic bands. These unique hair rings are traceless, better for your hair, without pulling it too much and prevent headaches. Wrap all your hair around the elastic band. On your final twist of the elastic, pull hair only partially through the elastic to form a loop. Strengthen the elastic to secure the loop. Gently wrap it around the elastic by twisting and tucking it around it.

Secure the top knot bun with large bobby pins. Gently pull and tug the hair from the crown and throughout the bun to create texture and fullness. If you want to achieve more casual look, pull out some loose strands in front of your face. Use your fingers to pull the bun out if you wish to give it more volume. Hairspray is optional, but it will help hold any loose pieces in place and help your style to stay.
