Many of you know that this is the first time in my life-since I was 5, anyway-I’ve had long hair, and as such, I’m new to the whole styling thing. I swear it took me a whole week to figure out how to braid my own hair, I’m that much of a n00b.
This 20 second knotted updo is among my fave new styles, because it is so easy, and so quick, and doesn’t require anything more than a hairpin or two and it looks great in that effortless, yet messy kind of way. I can wear this day in and day out without a problem, but I do recommend trying this on 2-day-old hair, because it slips right out after a fresh wash.
To start, part your hair into two halves with your fingers.
Next, cross one side over the other.
Pull the bottom half over the top and push it through the middle, making a tie, like you would do with a shoestring.
Continue to tie knots until you run out of hair to tie.
Take a hairpin and pin back the upper pieces of hair to hold the style in place.
Aaaaaaand, you’re done! 20 seconds knotted updo for the win!
Give it a try when you’re in a bind, you’ll love it!
