Hair, meet your new best friend — the topknot tutorial! For an effortlessly chic style that doesn’t look like you just rolled out of bed, try a relaxed bun that’s perfectly undone. Try out the timeless top knot hairstyle look by scrolling down and reading the step by step instructions below.
Before you start, it is important to note that you have to work with second or third day hair and before anything else, spray your hair with dry shampoo to give it some texture.
Step 1: To begin, add a texturizing spray to your hair as it adds additional volume and natural shine. You will find it easier to do a top knot bun on second or third day hair rather than clean hair.
Step 2: Use your fingers to take your hair and pull it into a high ponytail near the top of your head. Since this is a laid back look, you don’t have to precisely part your hair on each side.
Step 3: Start wrapping the rubber band around the ponytail tightly.
Step 4: On the last loop of the elastic band, leave the ends out as they will be strategically pinned and pulled.
Step 5: Take the ends of your ponytail in each hand and twist them together all the way down to make them into one piece. Twisting your hair like this will make your top knot even smoother. You do not have to make it look perfect, as you’ll tug at the bun next.
Step 6: Once you finish wrapping, use several bobby pins to pin the top knot in place, both at the top and bottom of the bun. Loosen the topknot and pull short hairs out for a messier look. Feeling more confident than ever, you are ready to go out and show your effortless look to the world!
