Beach Waves with Center Part Half-Up Topknot
If you like to wear your hair naturally, then this casual look is perfect for your street style. Simple keep your hair parted in the middle and pull back your locks and wrap up. Leave your textured length tousled and unbrushed. The messier, the better!
Hair Wrapped and Wavy Half-Up Topknot
Simply wrapping the knot close to the top of your crown and then finish the look with a hair wrapped elastic, you can also wear this day look to a night on the town look. Perfect for a day at the beach or a night in the pub, this simple look is perfect with wavy locks.
Not So Topknot
You don’t have to wear your bun on the top of your crown to rock this look. Simply wearing the knot in the middle of your head rather than at the top can create a much subtler look, perfect for your daily errands.
How to Wear a Braided Topknot
If you want to guarantee that this hairstyle is going to stay in place all day then secure the bun by braiding it before twisting it up into a centered topknot. This is easier to pin and secure with a few bobby pins.
Mohawk Braided Topknot
Braid your center part to really separate your half-up topknot from the rest. Take the center section of your part and simply French braid backwards until you reach the back of your head and complete with a topknot of your preference.
Straight and Sleek Topknot
This look works with sleek and straight as well as tousled and messy. Straighten your hair and spray on some shine to create a sophisticated and stylish topknot. Make sure the topknot itself is twisted tight and controlled.
Side-swept Bangs and Close Topknot
Another way to tame this tousled look is to create a side-swept part with your bangs and then pull the rest back in a tight topknot that is pinned close to your head.
