How to Style Your Hair in a Top Knot Bun

My Quick 15-Minute Hairstyle

Kate Bosworth in a top knot bun
This hairstyle is great because it’s so versatile. I use it at work, when I go out with friends, on a date, everywhere!! Plus it doesn’t require my hair to be clean, which is an even bigger bonus.

So before I begin, I want to walk you through the hair products that you’ll need. Don’t worry they won’t break the bank! You will need the following: one black hair band, fine tooth comb, Redken Hardwear 16 (max control gel), Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum, Conair bunmaker, bobby pins and Salon Grafix Freezing Hair Spray to set everything in place (another $5-7 item at any drugstore). Fortunately, I bought both the Paul Mitchell and Redken hair products in the small sizes to save some money and to try the product out first. Now I’m hooked and will probably buy the regular size when I’m out.

So it doesn’t matter if my hair is wet or dry, I put the Paul Mitchell serum on first and then the Redken gel. Then I comb my hair back and tie it into a high ponytail. With my bunmaker, I pull that through my ponytail so it’s sitting on my head. Now I just pull my hair over the bunmaker and circle it around it until the roots of my hair are tucked in. I’ll use 3-5 bobby pins to secure that last piece of hair and anything else out of place. Last step (see I told you it was quick), I spray everything with Salon Grafix hair spray and comb back any stray hairs. Sometimes I’ll accessorize it with a flower or bow. I’ve also done a lower, side bun as well and left my hair looser.

I really like this high-bun look. It's really regal and simple...none of the pretension or elaborate fuss :). I've never used a bunmaker before though, and usually make a slightly smaller bun than the 'do on Kate Bosworth by using putting my hair in a bun, securing with a hair tie, pulling the bun loose, and then pinning it down with bobby pins. Thanks for the article! :) This comment has been removed.
