It's literally our fail proof method.

We all have those days where we want to have our hair up and out of our face (because we didn't wash it? What? Did someone say something? Me neither.) and ideally putting our tresses into a bun resolves any bad hair day situations. If only the actual execution of the topknot could be guaranteed to make you look polished, and not like you just threw your hair up haphazardly. We created a fail proof method to putting your hair up in a topknot, and we have a feeling (if you're anything like us) you will be obsessed with this look.

Heres the break down:

1. Make sure all your hair is tight and smooth.

2. Create a ponytail at the top of your head with a small elastic.

3. Backcomb the ponytail to create volume.

4. Twist hair into a circular shape around the elastic.

5. Secure with hairpins.

Au revoir messy bun! We won't miss you!
