Sometimes, a topknot is used as a base for another hairstyle. The topknot can be wound into a bun at
the crown of the head, or in the case of a partial topknot, the hair of the top and sides of the head can be pulled up and bound at the
crown, and the loose hair from the topknot and that hair along the back of the head can be curled to create an attractive cascade of curls.
One problem complained of most often by women who wish to wear a topknot is that the hair is sometimes
not sufficiently heavy so that it pulls itself free. In the photos above, you see a technique that will help you to combat this problem. By
taking the hair of the top and crown of the head and forming an initial topknot, you create a base upon which to gather the rest of the
hair. The remaining hair is combed upward and smoothed into place around the first knot, and a second binder is used to hold it all
together. The inner topknot gives added support and reduces the amount of weight being held by the binders.
Now that we've taken this brief look into ponytails, you have enough information to be able to create a number of different looks for yourself. Just remember, these styles are generally very simple,
useful and can be a lot of fun, so explore the possibilities and enjoy yourself.
