Easy Hairdo Ideas: The Top Knot
By Kate on 7 November 2011
If you're looking for a new hairdo to add to your repertoire of styles then give the top knot a try!
Not every hairstyle has to be elaborate or hard to create. After all, some of the most stunning styles are as simple as can be, as these top knot options show.
The Tidy Top Knot
While a messy top knot is one of the most popular ways to wear this type of updo, a more structured and polished top knot is also a great option. This type of top knot is the kind of hairstyle that is perfect for a party or a day in the office. All that's required is that your hair is styled neatly on top of your head, and your top knot is twisted into a tight bun.
The Messy Top Knot
The most common top knot seen is the messy version where you're allowed to have your locks and knot be as messy as you like. This option is all about creating a carefree, casual hairstyle. If it looks like you've just rolled out of bed and tucked your hair into a bun as high as you can on top of your head, then you've nailed it!
The Fancy Top Knot
For those who are willing and able to put some more styling time into their hairdo we have the fancy top knot. This option requires, clean, sleek, glossy locks and some fancy styling when it comes to the actual knot. There will be plenty of hair pins and hairspray involved, but the effort is certainly worth it to rock one of these looks at your next formal event.
