Tutorial timeeeee! 🙂

halfupThe half-up topknot is one of my favorite hairstyles to wear – especially because it works great with 1-2 day old hair! You can find tutorials for this look anywhere + everywhere, but since I have such fine/thin hair, I like to create mine a little differently. I figured this would be an easy how-to to film, so anyone who’s still trying to nail the little bun on the head look 😉 …take a peek! –>

For those who can’t peep the video at the moment, I screen shot a quick pictorial for ya! –>

1. For hair that’s a couple of days old, spray with a dry shampoo.

2. I then apply a texture spray to give the hair a “body re-boost”.

7. Time for the fun part! Using my nails I gather a section of hair for my topknot. I lightly tease it, and then wrap it until it forms a bun. Secure with a baby elastic! topknot 8. Aaaand time for a little more teasing! My hair needs as much OOMPH 😉 as it can get!

Tease the hair under the right, left, and back sides of your head. When you're done, brush over to smooth!
