i said i wouldn’t do another tutorial. and yet here i am posting another tutorial for you. i’m nothing if not ridiculous…
that said, i got such great feedback on my crown braid tutorial, that i thought i would show you all how i do a topknot. it took me SO LONG before i knew how to do a topknot that i would even consider wearing out in public. i finally learned back when i had proper bangs, and my life was forever changed. i only wish i had known how to do one when i had shorter hair too, because i missed out on some prime topknot time. (how many times can i type the word “topknot” today?)
sidebar: i think it’s a law that women who blog are required to know how to do a topknot, so i’m really just doing a public service for many of you. hah. jokes. i love the stereotype of the selfie-taking, topknot-wearing, starbucks-drinking blogger, it’s simultaneously so spot-on and so far from reality at the same time. see above.
some things to remember when trying this out for yourself:
- translation: i call hair ties “hair binders”
- bobby pins are your best friends.
- do yourself a favor and go out and get a bun doughnut. do it. just go.
- this looks good on everyone.
is it weird that i don’t
dress up put on a nice shirt when i’m filming videos? i mean, it would be a lot more “professional” to look like i’m a civilized human being who stays dressed in regular clothes for more than 20 minutes after she gets home from work, but who needs that? i’m not pretending to be a fashion blogger here. (plus, i love my irish hooley t-shirt and it needs to be shared with the world!) although i may go back to my other filming location next time, that purple wall horrifies me.
alright, enough talk, now go out and do your hair!
