You can’t go wrong with a good top knot, and what’s even better about this triple-threat look is that it suits just about anyone! Even better, is that you can dress this hairstyle up for an evening out on the town, or for a casual day out in the sun. Hair blogger, Miriam Maulana, totally agrees with this sentiment, hence why she’s taken time out to guide us through what’s required to get this look right, the first time around. Thanks to Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Afro Moisturizing Butter, the process is far easier than we imagined! Ready to knot out? Follow the simple steps below.


Your styling steps

Apply Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Afro Moisturizing Butter to your hair and gently work it through by using your fingers.

Next, use a comb to section your hair into three separate pieces.

Once you’ve separated your hair, using your comb to get those paths straight, secure each section using an elastic band.

Now it’s time to add those braids, which you should attach to each section of your hair using an extra elastic band.

Braid the extensions before twisting them into high top knots and secure them using clips or scrunchies.


And there you have it. Time to flaunt your three new additions!
