Create a beautiful bun hairstyle in minutes with our speedy top knot tutorial.
We’ve all been there: alarms 1, 2 and 3 go off and you just keep hitting that snooze button. But then, by the time we fully wake from our slumber, there is just a matter of minutes to be up and out of the door (eek!). If this sounds like your usual morning routine, then knowing how to do a topknot should be an essential look in your hair styling repertoire.
While many of us love a messy bun for lazy days, the topknot is in a whole other league of get-up-and-go styles. Being both casual and chic in one effortless look, learning how to do a topknot bun the right way will save you from many potential bad hair days to come! And the best part? Everyone around you will be fooled into thinking you’ve put all the effort in.
Apply a texturising product.
Pull into a ponytail.
Tease and twist.
Then twist and wrap your ponytail around on itself.
Secure and pancake.
If your topknot feels too tight at this point, don’t worry, as you can simply pull on your bun slightly to loosen it and give it a more undone appearance.
To make sure it stays looking fabulous all day, remember to finish up with a hairspray like the TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray and give your ‘do a generous misting.
