Nicole’s Natural Hair Top Knot

I saw Nicole’s Natural Hair Top Knot in the flesh about a week ago.  I met a fellow naturalista, Dotoria (sp.) at Starbuck’s wearing this fabulous full, juicy high bun.  I wanted to take out my Marley Twist right then and there to try it myself.  But instead I experimented with my Curlformers. And we all know that was a fail.

To savage the mess of curls for my failed Curlformers Set, I figured this bun would be perfect. And it was.  I’m so in love with this here bun. “Life Has Been Given” 🙂

Below is the original video tutorial by Nicole Melton, Essence Online Beauty Editor. Hints the name Nicole’s Natural Hair Top Knot.  I have made a few tweaks to this tutorial so I may do my own Youtube tutorial if requested.  I’ve been rocking this bun for about a week on and off. Check out my pictures from my Instagram below.

        Don’t give up on the curlerforms, try it on dry hair with setting lotion. I, too, would like to see a tutorial on how you achieve that royal bun! #HHJ

    I think I just found my Monday up do! Thank you so much for sharing this. I am always looking for styles that do not call for blown out hair or fake hair to be added.
