How to create a half-up, half-down top knot look

Top knots tend to flatter all face shapes. They’re also pretty easy to throw together — especially on the mornings that your hair refuses to cooperate. Give your strands a mini upgrade with this effortlessly chic half-up and half-down top knot look.
Most up-dos look best on second-day hair ,and the top knot is no exception. Freshly washed hair is far too silky to stay in place when styling, but there’s a way to remedy that dilemma. A quality texturizing spray will give your hair the grip it needs to stay put.
- Paddle brush
- Teasing comb

2. Use a comb to section off your hair at the crown. This step creates a more defined part.
3. Secure the section of hair with a hair tie.
4. Tame your baby hairs with some hair spray.
5. Backcomb the small ponytail to achieve a messier and more effortless look.
6. Wrap your hair into a small bun and secure it in place with a few bobby pins.
7. Tease the back portion of your hair to add more volume.
