The simple knot
I’m always looking for quick and easy tricks to add a little something extra to my hair. I”m not that great at braiding. My hair is shoulder length, so I don’t have long locks to create messy updo’s with. But sometimes I just want something different. Enter the knot. Super fast and easy, and a great way to add some visual texture to your hair. Whether it’s one simple knot as shown in the picture below, or a few knots in a single or multiple sections, they can add whimsy or sophistication, depending on how you use them.
It’s as easy as:
- Section off a piece of hair
- Keep the hair straight or twist it
- Tie it in a knot (can take a few minutes of practice, but you’ll get it)
- Fix in place
I’ll usually spray a little hairspray in my hair prior to creating the knot, than give it a little spritz for hold once I’m done. So easy, fast, and painless. If you have longer hair and don’t mind a few more minutes effort, here’s a video tutorial on creating a sophisticated updo with two knots.
