Hey hey! Behold, my first hair tutorial in six months! What’s up with that? I have clearly let my game slip. On the plus side – I kept my promise on Instagram and actually got this post up today. Woohoo! Y’all know I love easy hairstyles [ Proof. More proof 😉 ]. Today I thought I would share a easy 2 minute half top knot perfect for straight, curly, or tousled hair. Half top knots are great for the girl on the go! They are cool and effortless. I love this hairstyle mostly for it’s ability to hide dirty hair like a champion. Ha! #lazydays
Today I am showing you how to do the fastest half top knot of your life! The key to this hairstyle is keeping things a little messy. When it’s all said and done, this hairstyle takes less than 2 minutes.
Half Top Knot Hairstyle
You will need: 1 hair elastic, 2-3 bobby pins
- First things first: section out the top half of your hair from the temples to the high crown of your head. Twist hair into top knot, fastening with hair tie/elastic.
- Tug on top knot – fluffing out to desired volume.
- Secure top knot with 2-3 bobby pins. Use more if your hair is thick. You don’t want a rouge top knot situation 😉
- place 1-2 bobby pins under the base of top knot to keep it lifted.
Voila! A perfect messy half top knot. This hairstyle looks really cute with day old curls, or fresh tousled curls. So break out that curling wand! A touch of sea salt/texturizing spray gives this look an even more effortless, casual vibe.
What is your go-to 2 minute hairstyle? Do you prefer the tousled look or messy curls? Let me know in the comments!
Have a beautiful week,
