Oh hey, lady lady! Looking to step up your hair game as you strut your way through fall? We’ve got your next-level ‘do right here. The va-va-volume bun is seriously sexy, and we consider it to be the topknot‘s infinitely cooler sister ;) You can hack this hairstyle in a few minutes and rock it with second-day hair, making it one of the season’s most versatile looks. Scroll on for the how-tos of this adorable ‘do.
STEP 1: CREATE A MOHAWK
Section off six inches of hair at the crown of your head to create your mohawk. Feel free to spritz the roots with a bit of volumizing spray to get extra oomph if your hair is feelin’ a little flat.
STEP 2: BEGIN BRAIDING A FRENCHIE
Begin braiding a reverse French braid (braiding from underneath, versus over top) to create a 3D braid. Complete your braid by gently tugging at its sides to widen the shape and add texture.
STEP 3: FINISH WITH A REVERSED KNOT
Now, tie off your braid with a clear elastic band and add a hair pin if necessary. Simple as that!
We think this style is all sorts of perfect, and so will you! Give it a spin today — we guarantee it’ll be on repeat for months ahead.
