Welcome to a week celebrating curly hair!
This is the start of a new series on Hair Romance that will focus on different hair types and hair colours. First up is curly hair!
I love my curls.
But it took a long while for me to say that.
My curly hair used to frustrate me. Now, after lots of trial and error and expert advice, I’ve learnt so much about curls.
Hair Romance celebrates all hair types but this week the focus is just on curls. I’ll be sharing curly hair tutorials, the best products for curls and curly tips and tricks.
First up for Curls Week is this curly top knot hairstyle tutorial.
I love wearing my curls out but it’s not always practical. For work, or on hot days, this top knot is a fun way to keep your curls under control.
It’s true that I have a lot of hair but there’s also a little secret inside my bun. A little something extra to really make this statement style.
Curly Top Knot Hairstyle Tutorial
- Hair bungee or hair elastic
- Donut bun padding
- Bobby pins
- Optional: Leave-in conditioner and hairspray
- Gather your hair into a high ponytail. Don’t use a brush. Instead use your fingertips to align your curls and smooth any bumps down.
- Secure your pony with a hair bungee or hair elastic.
- Pad out your bun. Use a hair donut around the base of your ponytail to create the perfect bun shape.
- Cover your donut. Tilt your head forward and fan out your hair over the donut. Then twist your hair around and tuck the ends under the donut.
- Pin in place with bobby pins and finish with a spritz of hairspray if you want extra hold.

- Loosen up! You don’t want your hair to sit too tightly against your head. Use your fingertips to pull back your hair and ease any tight spots.
- Frizz? If your second days curls are looking frizzy, spritz them with a leave in conditioner before you begin. If you’re still worried about flyaways then finish with a spritz of hairspray.
- Do you have too much hair? That’s a good problem to have! You can skip the hair donut and just loosely twist your hair around to form the bun. Not too tight though as you don’t want to crush your curls.
