How to do a braided top knot
Start with clean hair.
This duo uses an advanced smoothing system to help leave your mane smooth and salon-soft. Also, ake sure your tresses are tangle-free to make your braiding easier.
Begin your plait.
Take a small section of hair near the nape of your neck (roughly 2 inches wide), and divide it into three equal sections to start your Dutch braid.
Begin to cross the strands once like a typical braid. Cross the left section of hair under the middle section, and then cross the right section under the middle section.
Repeat this plaiting process, remembering to pick up hair from the sides and adding it to your left and right sections as you go.
Finish your braid.
Create a ponytail.
Twist into a bun.
Wrap your braid.
