Hair-Do How-to #3: The Top-Knot

You may have noticed I've been wearing my hair like this a lot lately, it's become my go-to easy style. So much prettier than the typical messy bun.

It's so easy, all you need are some bobby pins, a headband (optional), and some light hairspray:

I do this hairstyle a lot as well, but I never thought about doing it to the side, which is awesome!
However it won't work with my hair, which sucks. But oh well, i enjoyed seeing your pics anyways, so thanks! Can't wait for the beachy-y waves!
