Simple yet oh-so-chic, a half up half down bun is a classic look favoured by many celebrities, including Khloe Kardashian. Perfect for dressing up or down, a half up top knot is one easy hairstyle well worth knowing how to nail.
To help you perfect the popular style, here at Foxy Locks, we’ve created a video and guide to how to do a half up half down top knot in just a few easy steps.
First, start by adding a couple of hair extensions at the back of your head to create extra volume and body.
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.
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.
To give the rest of your hair more volume and texture, backcomb at the root and brush out, ready to style.
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!
