My Hair: Half Up Half Down Top Knot

Monday, January 12, 2015


Lately, I've been obsessing over the Half Up-Half Down Top Knot! I just love how chic and playful this style is. It's perfect for hanging out with the girls, going out for lunch or just spending a Saturday at the mall. I love it!! Not to mention ... it's super easy to do! 


The trick to mastering this style is to section off less hair in the front than in the back. You want to have more hair in the back portion than in the front. Less is best! Bring your bun forward (closer to your forehead) for a more dramatic look.

To create my bun, I did my signature Top Knot method by splitting the ponytail in two and then two-strand twisting the hair all the way down to the ends. I wrap the twist around my ponytail holder and pin it down! That's it. 

The back of my hair is wavy due to an old twist-out I was wearing. The waves really helped to enhance the overall look and texture of my hair. Prior to styling, I moisturized with Scurl No Drip Activator and I sealed with Extra virgin olive oil.


Are you a fan of the half up-half down Top Knot? Have you tried it?
