Top Knot Tutorial with a Secret Weapon.
August 31, 2012 by Cristi
I have had many questions on how I get my top knot to look so full…
I wish I could say, “Huh what are you talking about? I carelessly throw it up and it looks like this all the time!” But the truth is- that would be a lie.
The truth is that I have rebelious crazy hair (don’t be deceived- it has been straightened in this photo) and if I don’t attempt to tame it down with product or a good haircut (not to mention bangs that go clear to the middle of my head) it looks like I have been roaming around the Amazon for years without a comb or a brush. No I am serious. In junior high my unruly bedhead scared my friend’s little sister so badly I was nicknamed “amazon woman” for an entire year. True story.
So, in attempt to save me some drying time and from scaring small children- I do what I can to take out a little bit of thickness in my hair- but unfortunately, it doesn’t leave me a lot to work with when wanting to throw it up in a top knot. So, I use a secret weapon.
And I am willing to bet many if not most of you already may know the secret…
Shhhhh… but I know there are some of you may not know of this very rare and very difficult hair technique that I am about to reveal.
That’s right. A sock. One that I stole from my husband’s sock drawer- with holes in it of course- he wouldn’t mind right?!
You will need:
Pick or Comb
Okay now start by cutting off the front part of the sock where your toes would go.
Then scroll down and watch carefully as I am about to blow your mind…
Okay not my best top knot… but you get the idea. Easy huh!
Still unsure? Watch this video to see it done live.
