You can file this one under "late to the party", but I now consider myself a convert to the top knot. This is nothing new for so many of you, but for me, I really went out on a limb trying it. See, hair...it's not really my thing. I'd love to have long luxurious, versatile locks, but my hair game is little limp. When the whole "sock bun" thing started gaining popularity, I was intrigued, but skeptical. I have boring hair and I'm not very crafty, so my socks will stay on my feet, thank you very much. Then those crazy bun donuts starting popping up in stores. They looked ridiculous! Until I saw my co-worker totally rocking this look. Her hair is great anyway, but she convinced me that donuts are not only for breakfast! I borrowed her bun-maker, and am proud to say that this weekend I rocked my first top knot. I really didn't think it would work with my fine hair, layered hair. While not perfect, I got tons of compliments, and my friends swear they could not see the bun maker lurking underneath. These things are under 5 bucks at beauty supply stores, and I can now assure you- well worth it!

The tools: bun maker! At most drug stores and beauty supply stores. They also come in different colors to match your hair. Have bobby pins and hair spray on hand as well.
My finished look! Not perfect- but still super cute!
