the "top-knot."

This is old news, but I am obsessed with the "top-knot" hairstyle. I figured I'd take some time out to express my love. I just think a top-knot is so chic and effortless-looking (basically the Parisienne ideal). It's also a great way to get your hair out of your face without looking sloppy.
The photos shown below have all been re-blogged from one of my favorite Tumblrs, Top-Knot.

Want to spice up your top-knot? Add a fun elastic or bow! (:

Since I think of a top-knot as being a very symmetrical hairdo, I would either wear it with bangs pulled back or with blunt-cut bangs. If you don't have bangs, you obviously needn't worry about this! The blog A Beautiful Mess has a great tutorial with photographs of how to style a top-know. You can check it out here!

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    1. lol not a stupid question at all! looking back at it, i should have explained. a top-knot is simply a bun that is more on the top of your head. :) by the way, i'm loving your blog! you're so witty!
