When you’re in a crunch and don’t have time to wash, dry, and stylize your hair, one of the easiest ways to look chic and sophisticated without having to use a ton of product is to create the perfect top knot. Creating the perfect not so perfect top knot may sound ironic-but it is a great hairstyle for any occasion. Whether you’re dressed up or dressed down, this day to night hairdo is easy, quick, and requires little practice to master. To create this look, start off by using a large flat brush to comb out any knots or tangles in your hair.
Then flip your hair over your head and run the brush through your hair again. This adds a little volume boost while ensuring that your hair is totally tangle-free. While still keeping your hair flipped over, use a hair tie to put your hair in a high ponytail (or wherever you want the bun to be placed on your head). Take the ponytail and twist it around the knot while securing stray hairs with bobby pins. And there you go!
