Top Knot!

I don't really wear my hair up much.  Not exactly sure why...probably because I think my face looks skinnier with it down! :)  But now that this weather is making it difficult to breathe, let alone wear your hair down, it seems like the perfect time to change it up!

When I first saw people wearing the "top knot" I wasn't so sure about it...It literally looked like people were literally wearing a knob on the top of their head! Not so cute.

Since then, the look has evolved into a more ballerina bun/messy bun look.  This I like much better! All of my favorite blogger girls look so darn stinking cute when they wear their hair like this, so of course, I had to try it out myself!

You'll find a ton of video tutorials online and on Pinterest.  One that caught my eye was the "sock bun tutorial."  Instead of buying a hair donut, you can use an old (but clean!) sock to get the same look.  

Here's how I do it! 


And thanks to my husband for taking this pics!  (....while complaining about it the whole time :)  


  1. I love the top knot...but like you, I prefer the messy bun & not on the top of your head. Your sock bun came out great!

  2. I've been sporting the sock bun all summer! :)

  3. Just discovered your blog and I love it!
    I'm your newest follower! would love for you to check mine out and follow back! : )

  4. Great idea! I am going to have to give this one a go.

  5. I tried this in an attempt to curl my hair overnight. Just made my hair frizzy, but it looked good while I was sleeping! I think it's better served as a 'do' rather than a method. Love yours!


Thanks for reading!
