If you’re anything like me…you go for days without washing your hair. But who wants to wash and style it every day then do the same thing all over again in just 24 short hours? Not me. Especially when I am just going to work out and get it super sweaty. So whenever my hair is greasy and out of control, I use this method to make it look like I have my sh*t together.

If you have fine or thin hair, this is a great way to get volume and more “poof” to your top knot! And the more you do it, the better you’ll get at it! Play around with it and I hope this helps you on your greasiest of days!

It’s been so fun trying new things and it’s all because of you guys! PS – watch for Jackson’s cute lil’ bum in this video!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. 1. Jackson is a big meatball and he’s so cute and I just want to snuggle him!
    2. Seeing your shirt “in action” and not just in a posed photo makes me want to buy it. It’s adorable!
    3. I would love to see a video tutorial of how you set up some of your shots for recipe photos.
    4. Also, maybe you can make a podcast about motivation and how you stay excited about workouts/the gym.

    1. he’s such a meatball lol!! and i’ll write that down about setting up some food photos! love that idea! and stay tuned on the podcast next week because i’ll be talking about eating healthy while traveling and staying motivated through the holidays!

      1. I can’t wait for that podcast! My favorite podcast topic by far has been about being a blogger. I never knew how people made money from it so I appreciate your transparency. It’s really interesting to learn the behind-the-scenes stuff. It only makes me want to support you more!

  2. Thanks for showing that again! I saw you do the bun briefly on Snapchat and needed the refresher because I’m a bit challenged when it comes to styling my hair.

    Also, I just love Jackson. Like so much. I have a white female Frenchie and it’s always interesting to me to see other Frenchies, and their different shapes and sizes. Do you have Frenchie radar too? Anywhere I go, if there’s one around me, I will find it and I will squish it and smooch it and really try my best not to dognap it. I would never really actually dognap anyone’s dog, but the desire to have 2,000 of the little cuties is SO strong!

    1. i always go up to people with bulldogs and tell them i have a frenchie lol! i hate when people don’t care, I’m like WHAT KIND OF BULLDOG PARENT ARE YOU?! i totally want a million frenchies too! i have thought about getting another one for so long but it’s pretty nice to just have one lol

      1. RIGHT?! It should be an unwritten rule that Frenchie parents are all friends!!

        We have thought about getting another one too, but I think Willow is more a single kinda gal. She’s not fond of many dogs and is a little possessive…something we haven’t been able to break yet…and she’s almost 5 *huge sigh*. I thought she would love my brother’s English Bulldog, since he’s her people, but that was a huge fail!

  3. Love that shirt, just wondering what size you bought? I saw online it runs Large and im not sure if i should do a small or XS!

  4. I’m sorry I don’t have a more constructive comment or advice for future posts, but I just had to say thank you for this video! I have very fine hair and my top knots always give off more of a six year old going to ballet class vibe than an effortlessly put together “look”, so I am so excited to try your tips!

    It has been so fun “getting to know you” by following your blog over the years, but your recent addition of podcasts and vlogs are so endearing and such a nice addition to the paleomg brand.

    You’re just the best, Juli!

  5. I am so excited for this, I have been waiting to see how you do your top knot!!! My hair looks horrific on non-wash days and I can’t wait to try this. Quick question: I have always been told that teasing damages your hair, do you notice any breakage when you do it? Thank you!!!

  6. Yes!!! Been excited for this tutorial! I’ve watched videos about how to make a bun like this look good, but so many youtubers make it seem like magic lol. I knew you’d actually show me how to do it 🙂 Thank you!!

  7. I NEED THIS. I found myself in this exact greasy-hair situation this morning and could NOT get the bun going for the life of me. I complained to my husband that my bun was a wreck and he replied, “It looks fine, I’ll never understand you and your bun standards.” ….All I know is that there are ugly ones and perfect ones and on the odd-morning I get the perfect one my whole day is good because of it!!!

    Juli, this is totally off-topic, but I am hosting a Christmas party and want to make one of your desserts…. what is your all time favorite dessert that you would recommend? Or even your top 3 if its too hard to choose 🙂

    Thank you!!!

  8. Hahaha you are seriously hilarious, and Jackson is so freaking cute. I am so happy I found your blog a few months back, no idea how I did, but man am I SO happy I did! I love reading every post, no matter the topic, and now am loving your podcasts as well! You have already taught me so much about living a clean lifestyle, how to create balance and have a healthy relationship with food. Also Love that you keep it real, no BS. You’re awesome!

  9. Idea for a vlog: How about a tour of your house and backyard? We’ve been hearing so much about it, would be nice to have a visual to go along with it.

  10. How about an OLY lifting tutorial? Cleans are the worst thing ever for me and have made me cry. PS love your hair topknot and Imma totally do it when my hair is long enough. Looks like it will be a few years. Growing out a pixie cut is the worst.

  11. You’re so much fun to listen to…love your podcasts! Thanks for the tutorial and for the Jackson bonus at the end! I want a frenchie so bad…I think my husband is almost on-board!

  12. You are hilarious! Love the top knot – I’m a new mom and I’ve been struggling to do something with my hair so it looks like I tried but actually doesn’t take a lot of effort. WINNER WINNER! I just downloaded your podcast and now I’m so excited to listen after watching this video 🙂

  13. ok, so. easy, yes. in theory this should work. but i have long hair. like, longer than when you go to your stylist and you tell them it’s long and they’re like no honey that extra extra long. (best run on sentence??)

    so i’ll have to wrap and wrap for days. my bun will equal 1/4 bun and 3/4 wrapped hair hahaaa!

    but for real. now i’m bummed because i’ve been calling for this tutorial for forever and i can’t even do it. whomp. BUT!

    1. thanks for posting. you’s a rockstar
    2. i literally can’t with how cute puppy j is
    3. that SHIRT <3
    4. you are adorbs

  14. So, just now looking at this post (because topknots…my hair if FINALLY long enough) and was trying to look back through your closet to see how it’s organized. I love looking through the weekly fashion posts, but have you ever done a post about how you organize all of those clothes and accessories? How much do you currently keep and do you have a system for purging? (such as ‘one-in-one-out) I’d love to see your closet organization and hear some more about your system for keeping it current.

    1. so i use my normal closet with my husband then i have an office that is my second closet, with items that need to be worn and photographed. and once i’m done with those items and they are moving to my closet in my bedroom, i have to get rid of other items. my rule is i can’t buy more hangers so i have to purge items regularly. i would love to show my organization, but it’s really not organized lol
