I love the ease of braids. If you haven’t had time to wash your hair in a day or two, a chic braided ‘do is the solution. Here’s a tutorial for a fun twist on the traditional braid: the knotted braid. It takes knots to a sassy level, and it’s so easy to pull off.

Supplies:

  • clear elastic band
  • light hairspray

Instructions:

Step 1: Take second day hair and create a deep side part.

Step 2: Take a two inch section, starting at the part, and split the section in two. Proceed to tie the two sections into a knot.

Step 3: Pull hair to secure your knot.

Step 4: Grabbing sections from both sides of the knot, add them to the tied ends.

Step 5: Next, add another knot under the first and pull tight.

Step 7: And a fourth. You can continue if you’d like, but I like the look of four total knots.
