To get started with this look I have detangled and stretched my natural hair to more of a straighter finish.  I brushed my hair upwards towards the top where I wanted my top knot to be.  Then spraying my hair lightly with hair spray I brushed gently again to smooth out any frizz.  I didn’t want to use any elastic type bands to secure my hair at the top to reduce any unnecessary stress to my hair.  So, I opted to twist my hair clockwise around to form the knot.  I then used my thumb to push the hair gently outward to spread the bun apart giving a more full appearance.  Taking my fingers I grabbed sections of the bun and pulled the hair apart creating the illusion of even more volume.  Once this was achieved to my liking I then secured the bun with hair pins.

To top of the look I gently brushed the sides of my hair to pull down side pieces to curl into a spiral on the sides of my face.  Beautiful touch!

For the next style I followed the same steps as above only this time I parted my bangs out and secured them out of the way until my top knot was to my liking.

Then, I curled my bangs downward and flipped them up and away from my face, creating a slight curl at the end and pinning the curl at the top knot.
