Hey Beauty Lovers! Today I decided to share with you how I create my perfect topknot. Everyone has their own way of wearing it, but I prefer my topknot quite loose, slightly messy and with some texture. I can never get a perfect topknot when my hair is silky smooth as it just falls flat around the crown and I don't think it's a particularly flattering look. So I make sure my hair has some texture, which gives it a bit of volume and holds a good shape. To create that texture I use a dry shampoo and a salt spray. I use the Bumble and Bumble White Hair Powder spraying it a good few times into the roots and the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, which is a salt spray I spray just a couple of times through the length.
For the actual knot I use a simple hair tie and a couple of bobby pins. I simply pull up the hair into a ponytail at the top of the crown where I'd like the knot to sit, then I twist the ponytail and start to loosely twirl it around to create the knot. Only when I'm happy with the shape of the knot I then fix it in place with the hair tie and with bobby pins I take care of any hair that is sticking out. And that's it!
