How To:

1. Sprinkle Pret-a-Powder at the roots of the hair to soak up any oil, create volume and help your style to last all day.
2. Part your hair using your fingers to create a crescent shape around your temple.
3. Pull all of the hair that is above the temple upwards creating a ponytail in your crown area.
4. Secure the ponytail with the elastic hair tie just as you would with a typical half up, up-do.
5. Tease the ponytail to create volume. This will make it easier to create the “top-knot”
6. Take the teased ponytail and create a bun by wrapping it around the elastic hair tie.
7. Use the bobby pins to secure the bun.
8. In order to create the needed tousled texture for the look, tug on the twisted hair to create the look of a looser top knot. The messier the better!
9. Finish off the look with a little hairspray.
