The Perfect Messy Top Knot, Every Time!

Aug 3, 2016

I LOVE me a top knot. I probably overwear my hair in a top knot. Not always for convenience factors, although five day unwashed hair loves a top knot too. I like it even when my hair is clean and not so covered in dry shampoo. 
The key for me is the emphasis on messy! I don't want anything perfect, I want it to look a little lived in. And after watching however many other YouTube videos on the subject, I thought it was high time I share my way.

  1. I follow a similar technique for my top knot, but I hate all my little wispy hairs near my face and down at the base of my hairline. It's been worse after having each kid! So...any tips for either pinning them back or a good product? I use hairspray sometimes, but I don't like that 'slicked back' look.

    1. I would try a texturizing spray so you don't get that helmet look. I like redken's windblown, or living proof humidity shield.

  2. I love this, I wish my hair was long enough to do it.

    1. I always go back and forth with short or long hair, but when it's longer, top knot all the time :)

  3. I was just admiring your top knot in the last photo you posted of it. I can never get mine to look like that and have never actually googled it, so thank you for this! I'm trying it in the morning. Also, you are very funny and well spoken...you're a natural in front of the camera.
