HOW TO STYLE A GIANT TOP KNOT WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE A LOT OF HAIR

1. Gather your hair into a high ponytail. It is easier if you flip your head over and brush your hair up.

Make sure you have a strong elastic to hold your hair in place.

2. Pop your donut padding around your ponytail. Try and use padding that is close to your natural hair color.

3. Tease your hair. Gently backcomb your ponytail to create more volume so you have enough hair to cover the donut.

4. Hide the donut by wrapping your hair around it. Find the center of your ponytail and wrap your hair around evenly to cover the donut. Use bobby pins to secure the ends of your hair. You can also tuck your hair under the donut to keep it neat.

5. Finish with a spritz of hairspray to smooth any fuzzy flyways.  Smooth around the hairline, but still keep the bun a little messy so that it looks more natural.

 The giant top knot is perfect in second day hair too, as your hair will hold the shape even better..
