The Twisted Topknot and a Giveaway (CLOSED)

I've never been a fan of the topknot on myself - regular buns always looked a little sad on my head, and my hair is a bit to thin for a sock bun to work.  Then I saw this little gem on Pinterest, and my whole view on topknots was changed.  This version sits a little closer to your head, but is actually two buns twisted around each other which adds a little more volume.  I've rocked this almost every day over the past week - this could be love.


And now for a little giveaway!  To celebrate Dani and Ainslee's birthdays, we teamed up to giveaway $200 in Paypal cash.  To enter, just use the Rafflecopter widget below.  The giveaway will be open until 7/13 at midnight MST.  







Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway, the winner is Amy Harris.

  7. That is how ballet dancers do their bun! (because it's easier to secure) Looks great on you! :)

  13. Probably not, since you twist in two different sections it would give you more opportunities to add pins. I bet it would work!
