Most days I love my long locks, but sometimes they can have a mind of their own. I've been going to the beach and doing a lot of swimming in pools this summer and I wanted to find a cute way to wear my hair up that was simple and stylish. After fiddling around with my locks, I've created a topknot that I absolutely love!

Skunkboy
Begin by braiding three small, random sections somewhat near your hairline.

Taking either your hands, teasing comb or a bristled brush, tease your braids a little to give them a rough edge.

Roughly gather hair on the top of your head and create a messy HPT (high ponytail)

I like to pull some pieces of pull back hair to create a messier, carefree appearance. 

Skunkboy
Grab your ponytail section and spray sea salt spray throughout. This helps create and hold texture giving your hair that summer/beachy style.

Skunkboy
Take threes to five SMALL sections from your PT and tease them a bit. Doesn't have to be fully teased. I'm just trying to create volume and the hair will be easier to bobby pin later. If you have finer, silkier hair, tease 5-7 sections at least.

Take a few bobby pins and start pining hair in a circular motion around the ponytail. Feel free to twist section if you want to get extra creative with the look. Keep it loose and wild.

Keep going...

Take a small section from the front of your topknot, braid, tease...

and pin it back.

Lightly mist hair with a flexible hold hair spray.

Then have fun accessorizing it!
Two of my favorites are the Neut headband and

the feather dangle. You can find them in our Bueno Bueno Shop.

Aaaaahhhh... I just love those Mucho Bueno girls! These are the last weeks of my "Friday is for Friends" posts. Thank you to everyone who has participated!

I'm leaving town (again) this morning to shoot my brother-in-law's wedding. I'm pretty nervous about it-- I never really liked shooting weddings in the first place (too much pressure), but now I'm really out of practice. Wish me luck!

  19. Hello Katie,

    I've found your blog thanks to Jen from "A little birdie told me", and I'm glad I did!

    I love this bun, too bad I have lost half of my hair after my pregnancy :-( but it's growing back so maybe in a year or two... :) How did you keep yours so beautiful?

    Your baby is so cute. Mine is 6 months old and he is soon going to start moving too, we're getting ready for that ;-) He already pulls hair though!

    You're welcome to come and visit me
