Perfect Top Knot

There's nothing more atractive than a beautiful messy top knot. If you're running late on a date, or something, there's an easy technique to achieve. It's most known as the french twist. Or a knot, I'm not sure.Take a try on this amazing hair tutorial from A Cup Of Jo, that will blow you away. Would you ever wear your hair into a knot?



"1-2. Start putting your hair into a high ponytail, but don't pull the hair all the way through the rubber band. You want to end up with a little loop on top with some hair left over at the bottom. (By the way, I love doing a top knot on hair that isn't combed through, so I use my fingers to get my hair into place; that way, keeps some of the imperfect lumps and bumps. If you prefer a more polished look, you can comb your hair into a sleeker ponytail.) Tip: If your hair isn't quite long enough to get a top knot, you can also wear the knot lower down on your head.

3. Take the section of hair that's free from the rubber band and twist it.

4. Take the twist and wrap it around the base of the little loop of hair you created. If you have long hair, you may need to wrap it more than once. If you are wrapping it a few times, do it loosely…you don't want it too tight and rigid.

5-6. Use bobby pins to pin the bun in place. I like to secure my bun with four pins: one in the front, one in the back and one on either side. You may have to use more if you have thicker hair. I've also found that "U" shaped pins work better to hold thicker hair. These specific pins are great because they have a rubberized texture that helps grip hair."
