Braided Topknot

I saw this image recently of Nichole Richie at the '9th Annual Style Awards'. Although I like this style, something just doesn't look right - I think its the fringe.

  This got the hairdresser in me thinking, so I decided to do a quick tutorial on how you can create this at home. 

Step 1
Step 1 - Put clean, straightened hair into a high ponytail and secure with a hairband.

Step 2
Step 2 - Braid hair and secure with a small elastic hairband. Don't worry about any layers that poke out of the braid. You won't see these when finished.

Step 3
 Step 3 - Wrap the braid around itself, creating a bun shape. Use Kirby grips (Bobby pins) to pin into place - at this point you can also pin into place any stray bits of hair. Spray over with a firm hold hairspray.

And there you have it.....a great alternative to the basic 'topknot'
Even us 'non-A-listers' can wear this style with ease


  1. This looks lovely, im going to try this at some point this week :)

    1. It is 'so' easy to do. Also looks good slightly higher too if your hair is very long :) Let me know how you get on x
