I’ve been rocking the top knot like it’s my job lately (probably because it’s one of the only hairstyles I can actually wear after not washing my mane for a few days, but hey, who’s really counting?). Top knots are cool, at least in my book they are. This past weekend I even decided to twist things up a little and add a badass braid to my bun. You know you want to steal the style, so here’s how to create a boho braided top knot:
Step 1: Whatever you do, don’t wash your hair prior to creating this look. The dirtier it is, the better.
Step 2: Can’t follow simple instructions? That’s okay. Just pull your hair back into a high ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Then, go ahead and spray the shit out of your pony with a texturizing spray or hairspray. This will give it that “dirty, sexy” feel not washing it for days does.
Step 3: Separate your ponytail into 3 even sections and braid. If you want, tie off the end of your braid with a clear elastic tie, but this isn’t necessary.
Step 4: Holding the end of your braid, twist it into a high bun on the top of your head and secure with several bobby pins.
Step 5: Add another spritz of hairspray, and you’re good to go!
