Top knot hairstyle

The top knot hairstyle (basically just a super high bun) has been popping up everywhere of late, from the runways to the streets. It's cute because it's not necessarily feminine--it looks super casual when messy, and alien-like when slick. It's quirky and fun.

The top knot hairstyle was a feature Marc Jacobs, Jenny Kayne and 3.1 Phillip Lim collections.

In fact, the top knot hairstyle has been seen on celebrities and girls on the street for a very long time.

As seen at varying heights on Sienna Miller and Rachel Bilson.This hairstyle is very popular in East Asia, as seen on Korean actress Shin Min-a and Japanese actress Yu Aoi.

I've been wearing the top knot hairstyle for quite a while myself, as I'm sure many girls have. It is perfect for casual dates, and makes otherwise stuffy or formal outfits cuter and more youthful. I wear them when I'm lounging about at home in my pyjamas, and I've worn one to a formal wedding dinner. Best of all, it takes less than 2 minutes to create.
