Easiest Top Knot Hair Hack (EVER)

I’m all about creating the easiest hairstyles ever. When it comes to updos, there’s just something about them that I love. I enjoy making sure the hair is completely out of the face and I love hairstyles that stay put all day long.

I will say, for this particular hairstyle it’s geared toward medium and long hair. This would be a tough one to do on shorter hair. Once you get the hang of this one, you’ll do it again and again. It’s that kind of easy and good.

Step-by-step for the easiest top knot hair hack:

1. Start with 2 pigtails. Create them on the higher side so you can create the TOP knot part.

2. Take the pigtails and knot it once.

3. Knot it one more time.

4. Hair tie with an elastic (use the cotton ones because they hold better and won’t damage the hair).

5. Fix the top knot bun to make it perfect for yourself!

How cute, right? Super quick and easy, too! Which makes me love it extra!

Let me know if you try this one! As you can see it really is the easiest top knot hair hack ever!

Hair Products I Love to Use:

Here is what I used on this hairstyle.

Hair Ties

When you’re looking for hair ties, these are great ones for you to use. I love these because they’re super soft on the hair and really do a great job at holding hairstyles, but also not hurting or damaging the hair. I’ve been super impressed as to how strong these hair ties are, too. They really are amazing.

best hair ties

  • 【DURABLE AND STRETCHY】Made of high elastic thick material, the hair bands are soft and stretchy which can hold your hair without damage. These women hair ties can also keep your hair firmly and not easy to loose up.
  • 【NATURAL COLOR】5 neutral colors can easily match different hair colors, also can match all your dressing and hairstyles. 100 pcs 5 colors hair ties are economical to use for a long time. Suitable for ponytail holder for daily use and workout.
  • 【NO HAIR DAMAGE】With seamless design and soft material, the women hair bands are gentle enough to use and remove, will not snag or pull your hair. These hair ties can be stretched up to 9.8 inches but will not be stretched out easily, which is great elasticity and good for thick hair.

Hair Elastics

These are the Teenitor hair elastics I’ve been using lately. I was recommended to use them and couldn’t wait to give them a try. Victoria’s hair is on the thicker side, so I need to make sure I have hair elastics that will hold the hair and be extra durable. I also want to make sure the hair elastics won’t damage or crease the hair.

best hair elastics

  • Strong and stretchy: The elastics are not so thin that they break when you try to stretch, but they are not so thick that you can’t stretch them properly. They have stayed in very fine, soft hair through days of gardening. Also, they slide off the braids when grabbed and pull off clean. No rolling and catching the hair to make knots.
  • Great deal: This is a great deal on 2000 pieces clear rubber elastic hair bands, enough for braiding different hairstyles. You can keep a couple dozen in your purse, another couple dozen in your gym bag, some in your car…you get the idea. Any time you realize you need a hair tie, you’ll have a stash.

The best part is that you get 2000 for under $7!
