Hair How-To | Top Knots + Messy Buns

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.
