How to Make Perfect Top Knots for Long Hair

How to make a perfect top knot bun (neat and formal)?

A top knot bun is a bundle of hair wound into place on the top of your head. It’s an easy hairdo for anyone with hair that is at least shoulder-length or longer. For those with braided locks, there is also a version of the top knot provided here.

1. Purchase a hair weft or extension. Match it your existing hair color; if in doubt, go and ask custom service for assistance. Extensions can be purchased from http://www.donalovehair.com/125-ombre-balayage. We provide human hair extension of great quality.

2. Divide the hair into two parts. Starting at the base of the ponytail, wind each part around the other part, moving in a circular fashion around the base. Keep the wrapping neat by winding always in the same direction and capturing any loose pieces.

  • Alternatively, wind only one part around and around. If doing this, it helps to twist the ponytail length first.
  • A messier bun can be made by teasing the hair before dividing, then wrapping in different directions.

3. Wrap the bun around the ponytail holder.

4. Secure the knot with hairpins. Begin from the base of the bun to keep it solidly in place. Then pin in any loose ends that won’t sit in the bun of their own accord.

5. Add hairspray. A formal, neat bun should be sprayed to keep the bun neat and in place for the duration of the wear.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Cover in a net, as for ballerinas. Crocheted nets make a bold, colorful statement.
  • Slide a hair clip/barrette or pretty slide onto the center back of the bun.
  • Use clips with features attached to them, such as butterflies or flowers.

1. SHAMPOO YOUR CLIP IN EXTENSIONS
Clip in hair extensions are designed to be taken out each day;
they are not made to be worn for several days in a row.

With clip in extensions, you want to wash them in a sink to ensure you get all of the shampoo out of them, but you don’t want to wash them every day as that will cause them to dry out faster.

2. CONDITION YOUR CLIP IN EXTENSIONS

After cleaning your extensions, you will want to apply a small amount of conditioner every other day and it should be applied gently with a comb.

Conditioner is a great way to keep your extensions from drying out, but never use a leave in conditioner as that will leave your hair looking oily.

3. AVOID CHEAP EXTENSIONS
You often get what you pay for, so if you are buying cheap hair extensions chances are they get pool quality and will not last.
When buying hair extensions we suggest buying human hair extensions, which is often reflected in the price.
In addition, human hair extensions can be treated just like your own hair.

4. AVOID BLOW-DRYING YOUR EXTENSIONS
Blow-drying might speed things up for you, but is also really damaging to your extensions.
Whenever possible allow your extensions to dry naturally.
If you do need to use a blow dryer make sure you talk to a professional about the best way to blow dryer the type of clip in extensions you own.

6. BRUSH YOUR CLIP IN EXTENSIONS
With clip in extensions, you want to avoid brushing or combing them out while they are in place.
Take the clip in extensions out and lay them on a flat surface to make brushing easier.

When brushing your extensions always use a wide-teeth brush and work from the ends up, slowly working out the knots.
Never rip or pull the hair, as this will cause the hair to become damaged, as well as fall out.

7. USE A HEAT PROTECTING PRODUCT
Extensions made from human hair are able to be styled just as your own hair can be styled, which includes using a flat iron and other heated styling tools.

Overusing these tools will lead to your extensions and regular hair becoming dry and brittle, but a good heat protecting product can help keep your extensions looking their best.

7 Useful Tips for Perfect Party Hair

1. Give Hot Rollers a Go
You know those leave-in heated curlers? The ones that come in a big box that you don’t know where to put? They’re amazing!  If you don’t have a lot of time, you put those in and leave them for about 10 minutes. You just pull them out, and your hair’s totally styled.

2. Long-Hair is a must
I think there’s something really powerful about having a lot of hair around you.You made a promise to yourself  never to mess with your hair again—and it’s grown to her waist since. It depends on how you’re dressed, what makeup you have on, and how you style it.Long hair is a really feminine statement.You can totally imagine the scene that you hold the mike like a pop star during the party.

3. Give your hair a good care
First things first: If you’re going to be styling your hair every day, you’d know that you can heat-style and have healthy hair,but it’s about being gentle. Avoid going over and over the same areas with a flat iron and other hot tools day after day. And a good comb matters.  Just make sure you don’t brutalize your hair with it!

4. Get Glamorous Curls
For major body, work in a lightweight styler and blow hair dry. Next, wind 1-inch strips around a 2-inch curling iron, then pin and set for 15 minutes. The longer you leave it, the better the style will hold.Uncoil the pieces, shake out (don’t brush!), then finish with a blast of hairspray.

5. Get a Chunky Fishtail Braid
Pull all your hair to one side of your neck, then split into two parts. Bring a small section of hair from the first part, and pull over to the second. Next, pull another small section from the second part and connect with the first. Continue until you reach the end.

6. Fake Length
At-home extensions can be believable, but they take a bit of work. Get the clip-on type—human hair is best and have your colorist dye to your hair color. blending is what makes them look real!

To accessorize your look in 30 seconds, gather hair at the crown to build volume and pin back, creating the loose half-up, half-down effect seen opposite. Complete the style with a cluster of barrettes on one side.
