Braided Top Knot with Plaits

 Happy almost labor day! I've been loving braided top knots lately, so I wanted to give you a really quick and easy tutorial on how to do your hair like the pictures above! I didn't do a video this time because it's really easy, and let's face it, I didn't decide until right this second that I'm too tired to post anything with substance, and that I want to teach you how to do a braided top knot. So, here it goes!

1. Make two braids in the front of your hair using small sections. Refer to the second picture above.
2. Pull all your hair back into a tight pony tail, and get is as high on your head as you can.
3. Braid your pony tail in one single braid, all the way to the end of your hair.
4. Make a top knot with your braided pony tail by twisting your braid around the pony tail holder to form a bun. Secure with bobby pins.

As always, make sure you tag me @theshineproject on Instagram so that I can see your hair do's!

PS: To celebrate Labor Day, there are several Threads bracelets that have been marked down to $6 or $7!!! Ya, I know. We're crazy. Click here to buy some cheap bracelets for a really good cause.

Shine on.

This is one I may be able to do! Otherwise, I think you should come over and show me how to do stuff with my hair, because I can't even manage to french braid Afton's hair, let alone do a normal braid in MY hair!

What length should your hair be for this? I can do the two small braids and the high pony tail but am not sure how long my braid would be????
