The Prom Pomp:

BuzzFeed Top Knot

How to get this look: Flat iron your hair. Backcomb the top section of your hair then backcomb each side. Spray lightly with hair spray (Kenra #26 was used).

Then use a boar bristle paddle brush and smooth out one side. Bobby pin it tightly then spray again. Do the same on the other side then smooth out the top section.

Spray with hair spray and bobby pin the back into the other bobby pins from the side sections.

Big Hair, Don't Care:

BuzzFeed Top Knot

How to get this look: Set your hair with a curling iron or hot rollers, starting the curl at the scalp and feeding the ends through. If using a curling iron, pin curls to set.

Let completely cool. Spray dry shampoo and hair spray at the scalp and take out the pins. Brush out with a boar bristle paddle brush. Brush it out for at least a minute. Really brush it out. Don't be scared!

Backcomb and smooth out, then spray with hair spray or use a finishing cream (I like Brillintine Bumble and Bumble) then reshape the curls with your fingers and brush.

Mega Babe Braid:

BuzzFeed Top Knot

How to get this look: Start with a tight french braid at the crown of your head. Backcomb at the end of the braid and bobby pin to hold.

Pull the braid on each side to loosen, starting at the top working your way to the bottom and bobby pinning as you go to keep the fullness.

Twist the bottom of the braid into a bun and pin. To poof up the top section, simply pull hair forward and spray with hair spray.

The Twisted Crown:

BuzzFeed Top Knot

How to get this look: Start with your hair in a middle part. Part your hair from the center part to the hair line in a thin pie section and twist.

Continue all the way down the hair line to the neck. Backcomb from root to ends with a wide tooth comb. Do the same on the other side. Smooth out backcombing and twine the two sections into a bun. Pin and spray with hair spray.
