Fashion Fridays: Top Knot Hair Tutorial


Hi dolls! TGIF!!!  So the weekend is here and I know you've already picked out your cutest outfits for Girls Night Out or an evening date with that special someone, but what about your hair?  On one hand, the weekend is the ONLY time I get to play dress up, but then again, it's also when I'm at my laziest.

SO, with that being said, you can probably see me sporting my "bun bun" look. Luckily, I have a WONDERFUL tutorial for the top knot bun I found on Vogue that is so POPULAR right now.  Wear this to work, out on the town, or to the park for a picnic.  Anything low maintenance gets EXTRA kudos in my book! Enjoy lovelies!

THE FINAL LOOK

1. Apply mousse and blowdry.
2. Tie in a high ponytail.
3. Tease, tease, and tease some more.
4. Divide in 2 sections.
5. Tie in a knot.
6. The bulk of the bun goes in the front and the loose ends goes in the back. Secure with bobby pins and hairspray.

I LIKE!
After having cut all my hair short last year, I am longing to put my hair up in a cute, messy bun again (What prompted me to cut it in the first place, since that was all that I did with it back then...)

:) TGIF!

I can't wait to try this, but I think after all the thinning out at my last hair appt, my bun it will a little smaller. Might have to do extra teasing :)

I never realized an actual "knot" was involved! I usually just throw my hair up and hope for the best! :)

I adore the high bun look. I am going to experiment with my hair styles this summer.

LuLu said...

Would you believe I was JUST trying to do this with my hair last night. Well I tried. I didn't want to wash my hair and didn't want to wear it down so opted for the bun look, but it didn't work out so well for me. I tried several ways to do it and just didn't happen.

Pretty excited to try this way out! I WILL master it!

A Candid Life

Sorelle in Style: I didn't know a knot was needed either. I didn't need one for my hair, but it's not a as long this model's hair.

Lulu: Practice makes perfect :) I tweaked mine a bit and it worked perfect! I did it for one of my "In My Closet" posts...will update it this week :)

When I still had longer hair, I love to put them up to a "bun bun". Aww... I miss my long hair so much now. Why did I cut it off? Haha, well it will grow back. ;) OMG, you really post a lot. I just don't check for little bit and come back and you have so many new blog posts! Well, but I like it. A lot of inspiration! :D

Anastasia said...
