Continuing the top knot theme! They seem to be a popular hairstyle and for obvious reasons. Anyway to wear your hair up that’s not a ponytail and is cute too, I’m all for it. Last week I did the double twisted top knot and the most popular video on my YouTube channel is the messy top knot! Who knew, right?
This braided top knot is sleek and beautiful and really anyone can do it. It’s so simple. I share a few products I used and I do think they help, but if you don’t have them, don’t let it stop you! You can still give it a try. Let’s get started.
Braided Top Knot
Real quick, before I start, I bought this top at a-thread the other day when I saw a sale coupon come through my inbox and man, was it a good purchase. You can’t see it too well, but it’s a beautiful lace/crochet top. I am in love and would wear it everyday if that kind of thing were accepted. And if it wasn’t white. You can find it here. (not an affiliate link, just love my top!)
Moving on! So, here is what I used for this style:
- Smooth Sexy Hair Shampoo & Conditioning Mask
- Smooth Sexy Hair Smooth Encounter
- Big Sexy Hair Root Pump
- Dry Shampoo helps too
- Big & small elastic
- Frizz Ease
- Smooth Spray
Now you may notice that I used a lot of frizz ease type products, well, shoot almost all Smooth Sexy Hair! I have noticed a different in the way it smooths it out and helps me fight the frizz. I used them in this top knot because I wanted it to be a little sleeker and put together, not messy & frizzy. You’ll see when you watch the video how I use each product.
It’s funny because it seems like depending on the lighting my Madison Reed hair color (Trieste Red) has different hues. I am really loving the red and a couples weeks in, it’s still really vibrant! Oh and you can get 50% off if you use the code LAZYDAYS at check out. It’s such great quality!
Back to the braid… it really gives the top knot a fun dynamic, doesn’t it? So I have a video below which honestly are so much easier for me to do than the actual picture tutorials, so I’m going to be having more of those. You can subscribe to my channel here if you want to check more of that out.
Enjoy the video!
