Today is one of my favourite easy hairstyles – the giant top knot. I find I wear this hairstyle a lot lately as it’s so quick to do. Especially on a bad hair day!

What you need:

A brush – I like a paddle brush or a bristle brush
A comb
An elastic
Bobby pins
Donut shaped padding or
sock bun (use an old sock and cut off the toe) will post this tutorial on another post!

How to style a giant top knot
Step-by-step

1. Gather your hair into a high ponytail. I find this is easier if I flip my head over and brush my hair up, but whatever works for you! Make sure you have a strong elastic to hold your hair in the high ponytail.

2. Pop your donut padding around your ponytail. Try and use padding that is close to your natural hair colour.

3. Tease your hair. Gently backcomb your ponytail to create more volume so you have enough hair to cover the donut.

4. Hide the donut by wrapping your hair around it. Find the centre of your ponytail and wrap your hair around evenly to cover the donut. Use bobby pins to secure the ends of your hair. You can also tuck your hair under the donut to keep it neat.

5. Finish with a spritz of hairspray to smooth any fuzzy flyaways. I like to smooth around my hairline, but I still keep the bun a little messy so that it looks more natural.

Hair Romance Styling Tip: I like to tease the ponytail and wrap the top knot so that the hair is a little messy. I don’t like to see an exact outline of the padding. I pull at a few sections of hair to keep it a little uneven, and more natural looking.

This is such a quick and easy hairstyle that will have you out the door looking fab in only a few minutes. The giant top knot is perfect in second day hair too, as your hair will hold the shape even better.
