Prep- I used this technique to curl my hair and because I had just washed it I sprayed some dry shampoo all over to give my hair a dirtier texture. Help the style hold, ya know?
>>>1 Take a chunk of hair from the left side. I’m just now realizing that these pictures might be backwards. I’m left handed… sooo… if you’re not you might need to flip these images around in your head ha ha! Sorry ’bout that.
>>2 Wrap your hair up and over your two fingers from your opposite hand
>>>> 7 Now you’re going to tilt your hand so that you can reach that strand that’s being held in between your pinky and ring finger with your other hand. As you can see from the picture you’re going to pull that strand of hair underneath the first section of hair
>> 8 Now pull up on that section of hair to tighten the hair around your face. During that little grab and pull move your hair might have become loose up front
>>> 13 Now you need to find wherever the bottom of your loop is and pull the strand up, over and through the bottom of the loop/circle
>> 14 Once you’ve pulled that strand all the way through it should resemble something similar to step 14. If it doesn’t, try again. It took me a good five or six times to get it right. Once you have that last step looking something similar to mine go ahead and fiddle around with the pieces of hair. You can loosen the knot to make it look fuller and you can also tighten it just a bit so that the pieces in the front aren’t too loose and baggy. Make sense? If that strand on the right is poking out go ahead and insert a bobby pin underneath it to tuck it back and secure the knot.
It might help you to try this hairstyle when your hair is wet. I didn’t use any product to smooth down fly aways. I kind of like the messier bohemian look.
Is this seriously knot the cutest hairstyle ever? hahaha oh my gosh, I cannot help myself right now! Thing is it only takes a couple of minutes and people are like… whoa what? How in the world did you do that?! It’s the best. So go ahead and practice while you’re watching tv and I promise you’ll get it in no time!
And as always, if you love this hairstyle help me share it by pinning it to one of your beauty boards!
