Beauty moodboard: We heart top knots

Home / Beauty / Beauty moodboard: We heart top knots

We heart all things Top Knot here at the DDG office, and I'd bet my bottom dollar you too are coveting this gem of a hairstyle. It's an easy, versatile and quick 'do to throw together and best of all it can look polished-chic or messy-cool, and there are just so many different styles to play around with. From hidden braid buns to messy up-dos, this is one tresses choice you'll definitely want to dabble with (duh!). After all, when a hairstyle is used on the runways for several consecutive seasons, there has to be a reason, right? Right.

Love the look of some of these styles? Here's how to get them:

1. Find out how to get the perfect donut bun here.

2. Learn how to do the amazing upside down braid bun.

3. Pump up the volume with this big bun tutorial.

4. Joey Scandizzo shows us how to get the perfect summer bun.

    The top knot is my staple hair do. My hair looks ridiculous in a pony tail (it is quite thin), so the top knot is the answer to my updo. I wish my hair was longer and thicker to be able to do more fancy up dos!

    I love 4 & 5. Too bad my hair is WAY to layered to even stay in place for 5 minutes xD

    How do you achieve no.2?

    • BS

      It’s an upside down French Braid. Just flip your head upside down, and begin braiding as usual, I typically secure it with a small rubber band then gather the rest of my hair into the bun. This bun looks to be a sock bun.

    how can i do no. 1?

    • Abigail

      For No.1 which looks like a typical sock bun you pull your hair into a high pony (straighten it if it’s curly). After your hair is up take the “tube” part of a sock (definitely one that matches your hair color) and string your hair through the sock. Then begin to roll the sock down. You may have to tuck in some ends but your hair should stay in place. Ta-Da! Sock bun.

    Where are tutorials for #5 and #6? They don’t look as complicated, but there must be a way to perfect them!
