Easiest Top Knot Tutorial
Easiest Top Knot Tutorial is literally one of the easiest ways to create a perfect donut style bun or top knot.

I use this technique for 90% of my buns so if you are one of those ladies who has been requesting a more detailed tutorial of my bun, this is it!

It takes seconds to do and creates a perfect donut without even needing a donut! When everyone started using donuts in their buns, it took me months to finally purchase one myself because I already knew this little trick and never really needed one.

I hope you find it helpful though and share it with your friends!

Here are the steps for completing the Easiest Top Knot!
  1. Start by brushing all the hair straight back and into a high ponytail.
  2. Tie it off with an elastic band.
  3. Take a section of hair, right at the front, and separate it from the rest of the hair.
  4. Grab a piece of the hair elastic and pull it away to create a gap.
  5. Wrapย the section of hair through the elastic band creating a loop.
  6. Take another section of hair and loop it through the hair band again.
  7. Continue wrapping sections of hair until all of it is looped.
  8. Grab the center of the bun and pull it outwards, tightening the band, and creating a bigger bun.
  9. Adjust the shape of the bun so it is proportional.
  10. Finish by smoothing down any flyawaysย with hairspray.

    This looks so easy, but I have the hardest time doing the back side of the pony tail. Any tips???

      I know what you mean ((: I’d suggest doing part then checking in a mirror or you could set up a two way mirror so you can see the back as you go (:
