Top Knot Hair Tutorial (Video)


Easy and Adorable!

I get a few requests a week about this ballerina bun I’m often wearing, so I’m thrilled to finally have a video tutorial for you on how to recreate this easy and adorable look at home. I’m embarrassed to admit HOW often I wear my hair like this.  Not only is it perfect for second-day hair, but as soon as you get the hang of it, it’s the easiest way to elevate your look without having to actually “do” your hair. It’s my secret weapon, and now it can be yours too!

Not to be confused with other top knots, what I think makes this bun pretty is it’s care-free and romantic feel. This one is meant to be more on the tousled side. Perfect isn’t interesting so have fun with it and do what works for you. Either way, this bun will have you feeling fresh in under 5 minutes!

    Tried it for work this morning and it was a snap—and so cute! I have super thick hair, so I left off the volumizer, and it still worked perfectly! LOVE it!

    I’m very late to the party on this blog, it I’m thrilled with how approachable this is! How l9 g does it take when you’re not explaining it to people for video purposes?
