French Braid Top Knot -- Section your hair into 2 sections at the crown. Begin French braiding on one side of your head at your temple & braid backward on a diagonal. Broaden your sections as you move toward the back of your head. End your braid where your head begins to curve down. Pull the second section (and the remaining hair) into a high ponytail where the braid left off. Combine the two tails into a high top knot. Leave it a bit loose and messy for an undone style.
