Half Top Knot Placement
Play with where your top knot lays on your head. Try it on top of your head, or pulled back to the crown of your head. Either options work and you can basically choose anything in-between.
Try A Braided Half Top Knot
Instead of just pulling your hair straight back, try adding something interesting like a braid. You can do the braided half up half down top hairstyle by braiding the top section and then pull it into the top knot. Try a french braid, a dutch braid, one or two braids, whatever you like!
Some people also call this the mohawk braid top knot. Either way, it’s a fun way to add some interest and texture to this hairstyle.
Add A Hair Accessory To Your Top Knot
I usually just pull my hair into a half top knot with a hairtie, but you don’t have to stop there! Make your half top knot a little more interesting by adding a hair accessory.
Pop in a hair pin, or add a gold hair clip, try a ribbon or bandana in your hair or even a scrunchie. There are so many options to add to your half top knot to spruce it up and make it feel more special and have it match your vibe.
