Now that I’ve finally mastered my everyday hairstyle with my new blunt bob, I’ve been spending some time playing around with some more fun looks. I’ve always been a fan of the half-up top knot, but felt like I couldn’t get the edgy vibe I was going for with my long hair. Now that I’ve got this new blunt bob, I’m able to wear the half-up top knot as I pictured it. And it’s actually really easy to do, so I’m gonna show you how!
For this look, you can start with you hair straight or wavy. I personally like it best with messy waves. Now pull back the top layer of hair, starting at your temples.
Now twist this top layer in one direction, letting it cover your part. Continue twisting the hair around itself into a bun. Don’t twist too tight because you want to leave some volume and texture.
Rather than using a hair tie, I find it best to use bobby pins to secure the bun to your head.
This step is really important, especially if your hair is thin or fine. Use a comb to tease the roots right below the top knot to balance out the volume on top of your head. I find that using a thickening spray (Kerastase V.I.P Volume in Powder Finishing Spray) helps add some volume as well.
