securing top knot

Secure your top knot with bobby pins or magic grip hair pins.  I find that because I have so much hair, the magic grip hair pins are perfect for the weight of my hair.  I also don’t have to use an excessive amount of bobby pins.  So, if you have a lot of hair I highly recommend trying the magic grip hair pins.  I got mine at Sally’s Beauty Supply Store.

Adjust your messy top knot.  Pull at the sides a little bit if you need too.
