You’ve got to love this simple and stylish topknot. It’s great for office parties, but it can also be worn for other occasions as well.
Start with straight, sleek hair, and brush it into a high ponytail. Secure the ponytail with a hair band and spray the top and sides of your head with hairspray to keep the flyaways down. Next, separate the ponytail into two equal sections. Tightly swirl the sections around each other to the tips of the hair and wrap the twisted hair around the base of the ponytail. Secure the tight bun with bobby pins and finish with hairspray. If your hair isn’t long enough, you might have to use clips in the back to keep your hair up.
If a bigger, messier topknot is what you’d rather have, look no further.
You’ll follow the same basic steps from above with a few minor changes. This works great with textured, unwashed hair so don’t worry about getting it straight before you begin. Finger comb your hair into a high ponytail, leaving the strands around your face and bangs down. Secure the ponytail with a hair band. Tease the ponytail to add fullness and separate into two equal sections. Loosely twist the sections together to the ends and wrap around the base of the ponytail. Secure with bobby pins, but allow some sections to hang loose. Spray all over with a light hairspray. Have fun!
