Hair Inspiration: The Top Knot

aaand, my own (unglamorous) version. 
The top knot is undoubtedly my go-to hair style for the summer. Since it's so stinking hot in Georgia, I can only stand to have my hair down when I'm in the office. As soon as I get home, up it goes! It's so simple and can be as tight or as loose as you like. It doesn't get any easier. 
How is your hair handling the heat? Are you sticking to a particular style this summer?

Okay this post made me feel a whole lot better. This is basically what my hair looks like every day(I am not one of those girls who takes an hour to curl or straighten their hair:D)....so thanks!!

Your bangs are AWESOME by the way!

Probably my most fav way to wear my hair...ever. The more tired I am, the higher it goes!

I'm the same way. Hair down at the office, up at home! I wear my hair in a top knot to bed. During the day, it's usually a lower knot, but not all that different!

You look TOO cute. The bangs give it such a different feel, and I love it. You are a doll.

i adore girls with top buns! the higher the cuter i think. you should give yourself credit because yours turned out extremeeely cute! :)

Meesh said...

Looks adorable on you. I've been keeping mine down, since I'm no great shakes at updos and it's kind of long for anything simple. (My topknots just flop right over!)

kirsten said...

i love the top knot too! it is definitely how my hair has been for about the last week or so.

I have been doing the same thing to my hair all summer! It's great because you can just wash it, put it up, stay cool and then when you take it down its all wavy!

All the cool NZ girls are wearing their hair like this too. It looks fab on you because you've got such beautiful bone structure but when I've tried it, I look like a sumo wrestler :(

i happy to see this is still considered a bonafide hairstyle since i wear my hair like these all too much and it was starting to feel like a default and SO not a hairstyle!

The top knot is becoming a favorite of mine. I tried those spiral coil pins. Once you get the hang of them they are great you only need two of them.

i need to give this look a try. my unruly mane is pretty uncooperative but this just might be the trick.

My current look is untrimmed bangs in my eyes.

Love your knot!
