Today’s post is a look that I rock ALL THE TIME! Being a stay at home mom with a grab-anything-he-can-get-his-hands on 4 month old, pulling up my hair away from curious little hands helps me in being more patient with my little one; LOL. Luckily for me this messy top knot is also a look I can wear going out with the hubby, or just running down town to the grocery store. And the very best part of this perfect messy top knot is it only takes 5 steps! This means I can literally do this up-do in less than 5 minutes, and I’m ready to go!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 1 Hair elastic
  • 2 (or more) Bobby pins

Yup that’s it! Now for the tutorial! Check it out [themify_icon icon=”fa-angle-double-down” link=””]

1. Start by pulling your hair into a half pony, and fan out the fold.
2. Next loop the tail back into the elastic.
3.Take the edges of the fold and also tuck those back into the elastic.

4.Pull the top to make more of a 3-leaf clover look.
5. Take the new edges of the clover or fold, one at a time, and pull it across the front, overlapping each other, and secure with a few bobby pins.
Finish the look by pulling out a few pieces of hair to frame your face!

Play around with the bun, add pins where you want and pull pieces in different directions for a more complex look! Have fun!
