Knotted Bun

Want to look high fashion but have greasy hair and too tired to wash your hair? Try a knotted bun. These buns are sleek, stylish and definitely can turn a look into high fashion in seconds. Depending on your greasiness level you can try the style of the knotted bun. 

If the greasiness level is minimum you can make it looser with a few strands out. This would look cute with a pretty dress but if your hair are swimming in oil then try a tight and sleeker knotted bun. This is more high fashion as it is giving your face structure by sucking it back making your face look thinner. Try this with a sexy long dress with statement pieces or maybe highlight it with an accessory like Sonam Kapoor.
