BEAUTY BAR: Top Notch

Natural hair has been making a comeback, and there’s no denying that it’s here to stay! We all know that a classic bun will never go out of style. Not only is it easy to do, but it’s also cute and practical for any occasion. If you’re looking to switch it up, however, try the half bun! It works for any hair type or length, and it’s a fun way to spice up a regular hairstyle. This Fashionista shows us how to rock a half top bun with a dressy outfit!

During extremely hot days, you may find yourself wanting to cut all of your hair off. While short hair helps beat the heat, it is not the only solution. A half topknot can be a great alternative. This Fashionista is owning this hairstyle with so much flair in her bright shift dress and statement necklace. Her hairstyle is good for those days when you want your hair down, but still out of your face. All you need is a couple of bobby pins and hair ties. For a more polished look, you can also use styling gel and coconut oil to make the hair shinier.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To get this look, first separate the top half of your hair from the bottom half and secure it with a hair tie. Make sure the ponytail is tight. If you want to make it more voluminous, gently tug on the hair on top, tease the tail slightly near the base of the elastic to give the bun a fuller look and twist it around the base. Finally, secure the bun with a few bobby pins and finish by adjusting it to the shape that you want.
