Thin Knots

I know I say this a lot but I LOVE this hair do!! Really it may be my favorite! Here’s why, it is easy, quick, it can be fancy or everyday, and it works for everyone’s hair and every age AND it is a great next day do!!! It can be changed up too. Right now I will show you the basic idea with many alterations to come!!

One Sunday in church a cute teenager was giving a talk and I notice how cute her hair was. I altered it so that it would fit younger more active girls and have LOVED it ever since!!!

Without further ado, here we go!!

Start with a thin, long section of hair from the top of the head!


Secure with an elastic an inch above head and make a knot.


Now do another one! In a perfect world, these elastics would be even, but I left them a little off to show you it doesn’t matter!! It will turn out beautiful! They don’t have to be perfect!!


This day on K I did four thin knots sometimes I do three.

    This “knot” is really like a topsy tail…right? You are putting it in a ponytail and than separating above the elastic and than threading the entire ponytail through that, right?

            You have to pull in under the elastic and through! Check under Beginner on the tool bar and look for Basic Knot for a better tutorial on knots! Good luck! We love this do!
