BEAUTY BAR: The Half Top KNOTch

Summer days often call for beach wave hair and short loose fit dresses to beat the heat. This Fashionista switched up the normal half pony we are used to seeing with a half bun that has been trending over the Internet this season. Many have been inspired by this half top knot due to the amount of celebrities sporting this look. Even though they have hairstylists to help, this half bun is much simpler than you think and can be done right at home.

Whether you are in the mood to go on a lunch date with an old friend or just go out for ice cream on a warm summer day, this look can be done in less than five minutes. This Fashionista’s chic and simple street style instantly caught my eye. From head to toe, she gives off a causal vibe that is necessary for your day off. Not only does her hair top off the knot, but also so does her floral black dress, Vans and a fringe cross-body bag that created her overall statement.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To create the half-top bun, make sure to first gather a bottle of hairspray, hair tie and a few bobby pins. This look is meant to look messy and many prefer to refer to the quote “I woke up like this.” First, start off by sectioning your hair right above your ears and by pulling your hair up you can decide whether or not you want to use your fingers or a comb. Many prefer using their fingers to pull off the unfinished, natural look. Lastly, start making a bun and to secure it, make sure to bobby pin the bun into place or use one of your hair ties to make sure it does not fall. Once you’re done, just make sure you use hair spray to make the look last all day. Easier than a sock bun, don’t you think?
