How-To: Festival Braided Top Knot

To top knot or not to top knot? That is the question. Psh, who are we kidding, the answer is always yes. When it comes to Coachella especially, a top knot is the key to concealing your dirty-hair-don't-care weekend mood. Spruce up your basic bun with a little braid and bun cuff action, in the tutorial above.

  1. Section hair at the middle crown and apply OUAI Finishing Crème throughout to add shine and definition
  2. Braid the hair starting at the hairline until reaching the back of the head then secure with a bungee band and bobby pin
  3. Backcomb for volume then twist into a topknot and secure with a bobby pin
  4. Finish with a Jen Atkin x Chloe + Isabel Safety Pin Bun Cuff
