It's no lie we all know I wear extensions a lot of the time so you may think I have loooong hair, but news flash guys: I DON'T. I used to rock a short reverse A line bob but it's finally on it's way to growing into that horrible awkward stage we all hate. So I spend morning after morning fighting with it trying to do something slightly cute which never happens so I then resort to the lifesaving extensions.

But that also brings me to the Top Knot.

Okay, okay! I know we are all so over this 'do but it's finally something I can manage even with the hot mess of damaged hair my head is full of. So guess what? Today, you learn how to do it!... this really only helps you gals with short hair that's a pain in the toosh cause all you other ladies blessed with luscious locks probably have had it mastered for over a year. And that makes me quite jealous.

But grab your hairspray & cute bows cause this style will soon be your new bestie fo life.

So there ya have it. Easy enough right? I'd recommend taking a few times practicing before you go out in public. It starts as a disaster the first couple times so work your way into it. I hope this helps for all you ladies who are cursed with the "short hair that won't grow" bracket!


  1. yes. yes. yes!
    Not really sure why I didn't think to try doing a top knot this way?!
    Good thing I have YOU to teach me ;)

    love xoxox

    Oh and I vote YES to the curling tutorial!

  2. I can't even get my long hair to behave like this. I am envious! I love it!

  3. Lmao Im in love with you saying "more damage" after teasing and using those rubber bands. I do the same thing and wonder why my hair takes so long to grow haha. You are too cute

  4. I love the baby top cute! I have plenty of hair and still can't manage this! New follower. :)

  5. Hmmm I wonder if I could pull this off for work... ily!

  6. What lens is that on your camera Aubs?

  7. Ah! I've never seen anyone do it this way! I'll have to try it out. I use a sock and can never get it to look sleek and smooth. This would probably be easier to achieve a more polished look, as opposed to the messy bun that I get with my method. Thanks for posting the video.

  8. my hair is the same length as yours and I'm always jealous of those that can do top knots! I need to try this! thanks for sharing!

  9. Thank you so much for this tutorial!! My hair is at that same length {trying to grow it out} & I always wondered how to do a top knot with it!
