Confessions of a Hairstylist x Whatlolalikes: Half Down Fishtail Bun

December 15, 2014

Happy Monday friends! You may have already seen a sneak peek of this gorgeous hairstyle on my Instagram about a month ago. I had a lot of followers excited to see this tutorial and here it finally is! I am a big fan of the half down top knot hairstyle, so I thought why not spice it up a bit? Although I do have a lot of hair, the strands are fine so my top knots looks smaller than I’d like. This would be the perfect look for women who need a little bit more volume during the holidays. The style is fun, flirty and definitely on trend.

For this holiday pairing with Confessions of a Hairstylist and SN Makeup, I decided to wear a lace & ivory Anthropologie dress, tied with a thin black sash. This dress was actually worn at my wedding rehearsal dinner and I loved bringing it back to life. A clear example that you can take any classic vintage look and modernize it with a trendy up do. As you can see, these two women are extremely talented. Check out the previous hair tutorials by Jenny here and here on the blog.
