How To Create The Perfect Braided Top Knot

29th Apr 2016 / By Guest Contributor

In honor of Hairstyle Appreciation Day coming up tomorrow, I decided to show you how to create this super cute braided top knot in six easy steps! Once you try this hair tutorial, I promise you will be so heart-eyed over it, this will be your new go-to look for the summer.

What You’ll Need:

  • Comb
  • Bobby-pins
  • Hair Tie and Elastic Mini Poly Bands
  • Hairspray

How To Create The Perfect Braided Top Knot


  1. Flip your hair down and brush it.
  2. Create a french braid starting from the very tip of your neck hairline.
  3. Once you get to the crown of your head, first tie the braid with a clear elastic mini poly band. Second secure the remaining hair and braid in an up-do ponytail.
  4. Loop the ponytail at the top to create a messy bun. Use your bobby-pins to secure the bun in place.
  5. Loosen your braid by carefully tugging each section in the braid. This will give you that effortlessly chic look.
  6. Lastly, spray a few spritz of hairspray where needed and you are good to go!

I personally love this little up-do! It’s easy and totally perfect for summer.
