    Twisted Hair Knot Tutorial

    Up Hair Knots with Twisting Curves

    Try a New Twist to Hair Knots

    This flexible updo works surprisingly well on most  hair types. If you can wear a ponytail you can wear this twisted hair knot. However, if your hair is extremely thin or fine, this may not be the best look for you.

    Support products such as a medium hold gel or mouse can be used to add texture and hold to the hair.  That being said, I used only a leave in conditioner on this model. My choice; Vitamino Color, from Serie Expert, a Loreal Professional product. To refine and hold the look I finished with Kenra Volume Spray.

    Updo Hair Knots Step 2 Twist

    Step 1: 

    • Begin by parting the hair into thirds. The sections can vary so go ahead and be creative. Brush each section up and away from the scalp. As you hold the hair begin to twist it down onto itself.

    • My last section is much larger than the previous two, this creates an asymmetric design. I brush this section all together and take it to the other two sections.

    The twisted hair knot is a great way to change things up! For a more finished look, simply add soft curls to remaining face framing layers.
