We all know about the top knot being evergreen because it is both cool and hot at the same time. It makes the wearer feel cool as all the hair is scraped back and tied at the top of the head. It looks hot because knotting the hair on top of the head makes the woman’s neck and ears more visible. But that is not all, the fact is though the top knot seems like a single hairstyle, it is not as it offers many options on how you go about doing it.
For starters, you could go with an actual knot if your hair is long enough and pliable enough to be knotted on top of your head. This is the purist way of doing things when you comb your hair back and then sweep your hair up knot it and then what remains after knotting, you simply tuck it away in the tight knot so that nothing is visible. However, this way of knotting your hair may not always be possible simply because your hair is too thick or not long enough or that doing it this way makes you feel uncomfortable.
Another simpler and probably neater way to do the top knot is to sweep your hair up into a comfortable ponytail of the right height. Then you may take the hair hanging from your ponytail, twist it and then tie it up in a circular knot with the help of a tie or a scrunchie.
One more way to do the evergreen top knot is to twist the hair up into a loose knot and then skewer it with a bun pin. This makes the knot look a bit loose and lets you arrange a few tendrils on the side of the face and neck artfully to frame your face.
There is also the option of the false top knot in which you tie the hair into a ponytail midway up at the back of the head. Then you pick up the hair in the ponytail and pin it to the area above the base of the ponytail. You will have a bun like effect when you tuck the edges of your hair with a pin just below the base of the ponytail. You will have to use hairspray to keep the bun standing and the effect of this knot will be rather dramatic. So you may not always be able to have this on for casual occasions.
We are sure there are many more ways to do the top knot that involves a looser or tighter knot, or in the side of the head to name just a few. Do let us know what you think after looking at the images we have given here for top knot choices.
