How To: Braided Top Knot




{One} 
Put your hair in a pony tail. I like mine high. Plus it's easier to see what you're doing when it's high ;)

{Two} 
Pull one thicker strand from the front side of the pony tail and let it free! (Rest it on your head towards yours face)

{Three} 
Wrap the rest of your hair  around into a bun. Wrap the hair over the "free" hair you just separated. Don't worry, we won't let it be free forever :)

{Four} 
Secure that bun you just made with a few well hidden bobby pins or even inside the pony tail itself if you can.

{Five} 
Take that free hair and make a chunky braid...or fish tail braid if you're brave.

{Six} 
Flip the braid over so we see the underside and gently pull across the top of your bun. (It's okay if your hair isn't long enough to reach to the back. We can hide it so you only see the braid in front...I think it's cute! This is how mine is!) Attach the end of the braid underneath the bun with a bobby pin. Make sure to hide the bobby pin!

{Seven} 
Now you can pull at the bun a little bit to make it messier and bigger. I wrap my buns on step three pretty tight so I look like a cone head at first. I like a bigger/messier bun (personal preference!!)

{Eight}
Admire your work :)

And there you have it.

Easy, peasy right!?

This idea is a remake from here!

PS-Thanks a bunch for the birthday wishes yesterday! I'll share a birthday recap with you all on Thursday :)
