Hair tutorial for easy knotted up do in 15 minutes


1. Prep hair at the roots and throughout with a texturizing product. This style is great for day after hair and can be done with curly or straight hair, the look will just vary slightly with straight hair.

2. Starting with the top quarter section of your hair (doesn’t have to be precise, just several somewhat consistent sections), split into two sections and tie in a loose double knot and secure with a bobby pin. If your hair is curly or has enough texture you may not even need a pin for this step.

3. Once that knot is done drop it and pick up the next quarter section of your hair and knot in the same way. Repeat this process until you make it to the bottom.

4. Pin the last knot and tuck any loose ends underneath that may be sticking out. Pull or spread and pin any last pieces to get the shape that you want, and you’re done!

The idea for this up do is similar to last year’s holiday knotted crown tutorial, but creates a totally different look… This one is a little faster to replicate, but I love them both.

That’s a wonderful look (and I like her unconventional hair colour), but I fear that my hair will tangle too much after that!
