Upside Down Dutch Braid to Bun

The thing I love about this hairstyle is that it’s a simpe messy top knot with a hint of kick. I believe the top knot to be one of the most convenient methods of getting my hair out of my face.  The first time I saw this look was on my own sister last summer we were traveling around Europe. We wore top knots almost every single day because it was cold and we didn’t have electrical outlet converters to plug in our straighteners. Adding a little braid on the back of the head takes the top-knot up a notch to fancy-free :)
What do you think of the look?

    I love your hairstyles! I’ve tried this before but it never looks right cause my hair isn’t very thick. Any suggestions on how to make it look fuller?

      Hi Meaghan, my trick for making my hair look fuller is pulling on the sides on the braid and loosening the hair from the top. Have you tried this?
