A large topknot can be easily achieved by using a bandana as the foundation to add volume. This style works best on longer hair, but any length of hair is fine as long as you have enough to completely cover the bandana when forming the bun’s shape.
Required items: elastic hairband, small cotton bandana and hairpins as required.
Comb your hair through and then gather it all in to a very high ponytail. If you find this difficult try bending over so you hair is hanging upside down when you tie you hair up.
Fold the bandana so that it forms a long strip of cloth. Wrap the bandana around the band of your ponytail, tying knots as you go. Be sure not to leave long loose ends on the bandana; remember any loose end that poses a problem can easily be tucked under the wrapped bandana so that it is hidden from view.
Wrap your hair up and around the bandana as you would a normal bun, making sure your hair completely covers the bandana, and then pin to secure in place. If you want an even bigger bun style, be sure to backcomb your ponytail before wrapping it into the bun shape.
