STEPS
Step 1:
Prep the hair with detailing cream.
Step 2:
Part the hair down the middle.
Step 3:
Starting in the front, take equal size sections from both sides and comb the hair smooth.
Step 4:
Separate the section off center. You will have two sections, one in each hand.
Step 5:
Take the section from the left side and cross it over to the right side grabbing it with the right hand.
Step 6:
Take the section from the right side and with your right hand facing down pinch the hair with your thumb and index finger.
Step 7:
Twist your right hand so your palm is facing up and the right section is brought forward.
Step 8:
Reach your left hand between the sections and pull the right section through creating your first knot.
Step 9:
Have your clients hold the sections - one in each hand.
Step 10:
Take another section of equal size, comb the hair smooth and divide into two equal sections.
Step 11:
Tie your second knot.
Step 12:
Have your client drop the first sections and hand them the sections from the second knot.
Step 13:
Take another section, comb the hair smooth and create two equal sections.
Step 14:
Reaching underneath the sections from the second knot, grab the sections from the first knot and add it to the third knot.
Step 15:
Tie your third knot.
Step 16:
Have your client drop the sections and hand the client the sections from the current knot.
Step 17:
Repeat these steps until you reach the final section in the nape. Pivoting your sections as you work around the head.
Step 18:
Continue tying knots until you reach the ends of the hair.
Step 19:
Secure the ends of the hair upside down by not pulling the ends all the way through. This hides the ends of the hair.
Step 20:
Soften the look by gently pulling on the knots.
Step 21:
Roll the ends of the hair up to the nape and secure with bobby pins.
Step 22:
If needed, open the knots more by gently pulling on them and pin any loose hairs.
Step 23:
Finish the look with a light-hold hairspray.
