How To: Messy Top Knot

Winter is in full swing and that means my hair is a static-filled frizz ball by noon every single day. So, it’s time to break out the top knot! Throwing your hair into a messy bun is the perfect way to tame static with style - it only takes 2 minutes!

Pull hair into a high ponytail and fasten with a hair band.

Tease! Tease! Tease! Try to tease near the base of the ponytail so the ends stay shiny and smooth.

Separate hair into two chunks.Take section one and wrap it loosely around the front of the ponytail and fasten it in place with a bobby pin.

Next, take section two and wrap it around the back of the ponytail and fasten it into place.

Slightly tug at the bun and add any additional bobby pins you may need for flyaways. Va va voom! You've got a top knot!

Remember, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again.  Don't be afraid to take out the pins and redo your bun. Have fun with it!
