Top Knot Bun Tutorial -Two ways (Video Link)

For this week’s tutorial I will show you two ways to do a top knot bun. This hairstyle is perfect for day 2+ hair. It is my go to on day 3 (sometimes 4). You can do a messy knot or a more polished knot.

 

Steps for the perfect 1 minute half up top knot:
(you can skip to video below)
Messy Top Knot
    1. If your working with lived in hair (aka dirty hair) apply some dry shampoo before starting.
    2. Gather hair into a high loose ponytail position (you want it right at the top of your head, not towards the back).
    3. See slowed down technique below:

 

  1. Optional- if you have fine hair or just want to create more body, tease/back comb the entire ponytail, from root to tip.
  2. Pin the bun to shape it to your liking. I prefer to use U shaped bobby pins. They give you enough hold but not too tight so your top knot keeps its shape and is not flattened.
  3. Pin back shorter hairs at the back of your head.
Polished Top Knot

 

  1. If your working with lived in hair (aka dirty hair) apply some dry shampoo before starting.
  2. Gather hair into a high tight ponytail.
  3. Optional- if you have fine hair or just want to create more body, tease/back comb the entire ponytail, from root to tip.
  4. Pin back shorter hairs at the back of your head.
  5. Now wrap the ponytail around into a bun and pin the loose ends into place. Again I use U shaped bobby pins, made specifically for buns!
