Step Two: Section the Front of Your Hair

Next, section the front of your hair back into a triangle shape along the top of your head, making sure you’ve taken an even amount from both sides. Secure with a clear elastic band so you have a small ponytail at the top of your head.

Step Three: Create Your Bun

Backcomb and spray the ponytail for more texture, then twist and coil it around the bobble to form a half up half down bun close to your head. Secure with hair grips to keep in place.

Step Four: Backcomb and Brush Out Your Hair

To give the rest of your hair more volume and texture, backcomb at the root and brush out, ready to style.

Final Step: Curl Your Hair

Finally, curl your hair in loose, natural waves across both sides of your head using a curling wand. Spray your curls lightly with hairspray to keep them from dropping and provide extra texture. 

Now you have the perfect half up half down top knot ready to style for a variety of occasions!
