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.
