HALF-UP TOP KNOT HAIRSPIRATION


I love that top knots are coming back in style! I remember wearing one a few months back and Eric poking fun at me, but whose laughing now ;) I thought I'd share a few fun, slightly different versions of the top knot that are my favorite at the moment. The perfect hairstyle for both short and long hair. Do you like the half-up top knot look?


Now onto the tutorials! 

messy middle part half top knot

When to wear: Perfect for Summer concerts, a day at the beach or grabbing lunch with girlfriends.
TO CREATE: Keep hair messy and separate into a middle part. Gather top of hair, leaving a half inch above ears. Loosely create a bun at the crown of head by wrapping hair around finger and tie with small elastic.

When to wear: Love this look for those relaxed nights in with your significant other, hot Summer nights, even that casual outdoor wedding.
TO CREATE: Separate hair in a deep side part. Gather hair at the back of your head, just above ear height. Loosely create a messy bun and secure with elastic.


high half top knot
When to wear: That perfect look for grabbing dessert with friends or bringing a fun, fresh look to your everyday Summer dress.
TO CREATE: Smooth out hair, grabbing roughly 2 inches of hair above ear and creating a high half top knot just above the crown of head. Play around with the volume of your bun to give different looks!

  2. I love these, you look amazing. Top knots are my favourites when studying, keep the hair off my face but still look cute. Can't wait until my hair is a bit longer though, I don't find it looks as good with shorter hair!
