Half-Up Top Knot is trending right now, it supposed to be the hair trend for the spring. But we know some of us can not even master a normal bun so we have this tips for you that would make everything easier. No matter if you have long or short hair this style works either way.
- Think about where to place your knot. On short hair, a slick low knot gives length; on thick hair, a half-up look removes bulk; and on fine hair, a topknot can be teased before it’s twisted to give the illusion of fullness.
- Go for sculptural. Once you’ve nailed down the placement, gather your hair into a ponytail and secure with an elastic. Split the tail into two sections and give them a tug so that the sides tighten and the top stays soft. Then twist your ponytail until it coils on itself and secures it with two pins. There’s your knotted updo.
- Section your hair from your temples up toward the crown of your head. Pull your hair through a hair elastic twice, and then on the third time, don’t pull it through the entire way to create a looped bun. Lastly, pull some strands of hair in front of your ears and flatten the hair behind your ears (reducing volume) so the bits of hair in front pop.
- If you have long hair: First, separate the top half of your hair from the bottom half, securing it with a hair tie. Make sure the ponytail is tight. Go back and gently tug on the hair on top if you need to make it look more voluminous. Then, tease the tail slightly near the base of the elastic (this will give your bun a fuller look) and twist it around the base. Secure the bun with a few bobby pins and finish by adjusting it to the shape that you want.
