Let’s Chat About Half Top Knots

I’ve written about the universe sending us signs before…usually these signs are helpful in sparking intuition and clearing the way for positive life changes. However, this week? The universe must be telling me that I need to write about half top knots because SWEET JEBUS I’ve seen them everywhere.

Whats the deal? Is this the new look? I’ve always longed for a fun, messy way to pull half of my hair back, and you know I love me a full top knot, so is this the answer beckoning to me?

Take a look for yourself. There’s even a YouTube tutorial on the subject. Should I be wearing this trend, people?


Kids these days…

    Why not? If you like the look, you may as well try it.

    I’m guilty of wearing it. But mainly to the gym because my hair is too short to get it all into a bun.

    If you like it, wear it! I think it is a nice change of pace from the traditional buns.

    xo, Sarah

    I’m totally a fan. Also I’ve heard it called a “hun” and for some reason I feel strongly that we should embrace that name. “Love your hun, hon.”

    Ooh, thanks for the IG suggestion. Her page is fab! (and I like the half top knot, btw!)

    I didn’t like the top knot, then I decided to try it and thought it looked ok. Kind of cute maybe. My daughter proceeded to press the topknot like a little button and said “beep beep, mama’s got a button on top of her head”…and so I won’t be wearing it anymore.
