The back of yo' head is ridiculous

A little while ago, Kyla at Blue Collar Catwalk made a tutorial video about how to do a top knot hairstyle. I commented about how sad I was 'cause it looks so good on Kyla but I have a mane and it would look ridiculous on me. Kyla replied with something along the lines of "GRRRRL yo hairz would look FIERCE in a topknot". So I tried it and this is what I came up with!

Please note that this photograph was taken after being out in the rain all afternoon. Just sayin', it looked better before i left the house and stepped into the humidity. I wasn't sure about how the style looked on me, but my boyfriend liked it and I guess he would have said soemthing if he thought I looked ridiculous because he's the one that has to be seen in public holding my hand...

Oh yeah,
Sweater: Smart Set
Skirt: Thrifted, $4
Tights: Garage, $10

Everyone should try doing a top knot! I found it really comfortable, especially for sleeping, 'cause you're not lying on your hair. Also, if my hair is down on a rainy day it turns into a huge frizzy mess (even more so than usual), so this was a good solution.

P.S. The title of this post is derived from this hilarious YouTube video that I'm sure half of you have seen at some point. Whenever i ask people for their numbers in real life, i say it like this guy does haha.

Love Always,


  1. I am so glad you tried the top knot style from Kyla's tutorial, it looks fierce for sure!! Love it, it!


  2. I love it and I'm sooo glad you tried it! I've always wanted mounds of crazy curly hair, so I could just pile it on top of my head. Now, I'm living vicariously through you :)
