Texas spring humidity and my hair are NOT friends, ya’ll.
Most days all I want to do with the humidity-amplified poufiness of my naturally curly mop is tame it by tying it up. That’s why I’ve been rocking the top knot so much lately. It’s been a refreshing alternative to my typical mom ponytail rut.
Creating this top knot takes about three minutes total. Here’s how:
Step 1: Apply a smoothing cream to dry hair.
Step 2: Rake fingers through hair and gather into a high ponytail. The ponytail should be a few inches back from the top of your head.
Step 3: Separate ponytail into three sections. Twist ends of each and using bobby pins, secure into loose bun.
