The Top Knot messy bun is a go-to for any day that the weather isn’t cooperating, you’re in a rush, or you simply want that voluminous bun style! For short hair or a bigger bun, you can use your Leyla Milani Hair Extensions to get the look. Here’s how to get it!


You’ll Need:




  1. Brush your hair thoroughly before beginning to ensure any knots are untangled. To insert your hair extensions: Section your hair from just above your ear and clip the top half of your hair up. Once the hair is secure, grab a 2-clip weft and gently brush it to remove any tangles. Next, you’re going to want to clip the weft UPSIDE DOWN and clip into the top half of your hair. NOTE: Always remember that when clipping in your hair extensions, they must always be in the direction the hair is going. This will ensure the back of your hair stays flat and there is nothing sticking out. Now, go ahead and separate another section of hair just above your first weft (at the crown of your head). Taking a 3-clip weft you are now going to secure this at the crown section, but this time facing downwards. This helps to ensure that when the hair is pulled up into a ponytail, the top weft will remain flat.
  2. Pull your hair back into a ponytail, gently brushing to ensure that all of the hairs are covering the weft. Now, begin twisting your hair into a tight bun and wrapping all your hair around it. Once you are satisfied with your bun, secure with a hair elastic.
  3. Now that your bun has been secured, you’re now going to take your bobby pins, securing any small pieces that are sticking out. Last, gently tug on a few pieces in the bun to give it more volume. Once the bun is to your liking, you’re all done!
