Thick Hair Top Knot How-To

As I recently mentioned in this post, I haven't been beating the summer heat with the ever-so-chic top knot. After I wrote that post, I found a fun tutorial on different bun hairstyles so I tried one out that seemed like it may work and bam....I had a top knot that didn't resemble a pickle. But warning: my bun still turned out huge. Keep reading to see a video on how I achieved this bun.

Even if I am still trying to master the perfect top knot, this was a fun post for me because I got to play around with video as well (it would be awesome to one day go to a Video class like Blogshop to learn more!) I think its a-okay to not have everything mastered and still practice new skills, thanks for letting me share this small endeavors with you!

Later in the week will be an outfit post and a really fun DIY that includes tea!
