The top-knot is one of my absolute favorite hairstyles. I hope so much that it never goes out of style, because once you master the method it’s incredibly easy to do and works great with second (or third) day hair. It’s one of the things I was most excited about when my hair finally started getting longer! Plus, unlike a regular ponytail, it’s really polished looking.
I think one of the biggest misconceptions is that you need really long hair or really thick hair to do a great top-knot. I have neither and I still think I get pretty good results when I style my hair this way. The trick? Teasing your pony for extra volume and a slightly messy look.
Watch the video below for the full tutorial, then use some of your time this weekend to practice! It may take a little while to master, but I promise the effort is worth it. Oh, and if you do give this method a try, I would love to see you post your photos on Instagram! Make sure to use the hashtag #e&ctopknot so I can check them out.
