Steps for How to Do a Top Knot:

1. Place a VERY high ponytail in your hair

2. Divide your ponytail in (2) distinct sections

3. Take an elastic band and place it over the end of the ponytail (see video for exactly what I mean)

4. Take the bun section and fan it out a little, don’t be afraid to really pull to make it full

5. Take the “extra” hair and wrap it around the bun

6. Secure into place and push/pull any which way you want
