To make this updo, I divided my hair into three. I made a part on each side of my head from the crown to the ear. The back section was the largest.
I took the back section, wrapped it around my fingers, then pulled the ends through the loop that was created by the wrapping. Essentially it's a slip knot. I then just pinned the knot into place.
Then I took the loose hair from the right side, crossed it over the pinned knot and then created a second knot, which I then pinned into place on the left. Finally, I took the loose hair from the left, crossed it over the two knots and created a third knot on the right side, and also pinned that into place.
The reason I crossed the left to the right and the right to the left is so that the parts wouldn't show.
If I wanted to make this style more polished, I could take the ends of each knot, wrap them around and pin them under. I could also use a smoothing hair-friendly gel or spray if I wanted to reduce the flyaways. However, for a casual summer day, I like the flyaway, ends-sticking-out look.
I can do a step-by-step of how to make the knots in a future entry if anyone is interested.
I hope that everyone is enjoying a lovely weekend. Myself, I'm feeling a bit better than I was yesterday.
Love to all.
