Bummed that this is the last of my Mom-inspired DIY hairstyles as part of TRESemmé’s Throwback Thursday series, but happy to go out on top (knot)! I had a blast modeling my Mother’s bouffant and breezy boat blown waves, and was excited to see the topknot was also part of her hair repertoire. I love the that this look re-emerged on the runways, trickled down onto the red carpet, and then was quickly adopted as an everyday, go-to style. We decided to put a twist (literally) on the basic topknot to add a little style and also give it a little extra support to sit high all day.
BTW how dork-tastic is my older sista and bro in the pic with my Ma, cute pup too!
Steps and products after the break!
I’ve recently discovered the sock bun
, and am a little obsessed! It is a major way to amp your updo and give your hair a lift. After seeing so many stars
adding chains to thier hair styles, I gave my big bun a golden upgrade. With a couple hair combs and an assortment of chains, you can deck out your ‘do for everyday, or add a string of rhinestones for an evening out.
3-4 pieces of chain or rhinestones (each 1ft)
First, cut chain and lay down how you would like it to look in your hair
Next attach each peice of chain to your comb with the jump rings. Start with your shortest chain at the top of the comb (while teeth face in)
Attach second piece of chain in the middle of the comb
Then attached third piece to the bottom of the comb.
Insert one comb on each side of your head, teeth facing down
