Simple Instructions for a Top Knot
It is advised not to do this hairstyle just after shampooing because after using shampoo, the hair gets soft, slippery and therefore it is hard to work with.
A brush has to be used to remove all tangles in the hair. You can also add a little bit of hairspray to smoothen the hair. When the hair is smooth and there are no tangles, make a very high ponytail which rests at the top of your crown.
The ponytail has to be smoothened from roots to the ends.
The ponytail will have to be set into hot rollers to make it curly. Gel can be used to style the hair. Style you hair with your fingers, because if you use a brush your curls may get ruined.
One of the curls has to be folded so that it forms a loop. Remember to work clockwise and be careful with the curls. Once the loop has been formed, it has to be pinned near the crown at the base of the ponytail. Remember to make the loops very carefully otherwise the curls may get spoilt.
It is advised to keep the loops as close to the head as possible, as this will make the top knot look elegant.
Make a few more loops in the same way.
When all the loops have been formed, they should be merged into the ponytail to create an elegant effect.
Once you are happy with your Top Knot, spray each loop with a good holding spray for securing it properly.

To finish, you can put some glittery crystal hairclips or headbands or even add jeweled clips. You can also adorn your tresses by putting in a fresh flower.
