This hairstyle has been popping up everywhere lately – even weddings – and we thought it was high time to share it with you on the blog. If you’re having a bad hair day, the top knot will become your favorite hair cheat-sheet style. Need more volume? A top knot essentially pumps up the volume of a traditional messy bun.
