Knotted up hair do

Posted on: July 19, 2010

While I enjoy the recreations that summer brings, I don’t really care for the heat of summer. I especially can’t stand having my hair down for very long, which means I wear ponytails. A lot. And while I’ve gotten creative with my ponytails, I’ve decided to try my hand at something new {after all, this is my year to start being a fashion mama}.

Knotted up hair do:

{Hannah looks a little shell shocked – and is covered in bbq sauce!}

Here’s how to do the ‘do:

1. Wash {or just wet} and dry only the front until only damp.

2. Part hair down the side, pulling out a front section about the width of your thumb.

3. Pull 2-4 sections of hair from the front sides {by your temples and top of ears}.

4. Twirl hair, pull back to the bottom of your crown, pin down with bobby pins.

5. Grab small sections of your hair, one at a time, twirl and pin down.

You will need a lot of bobby pins to secure all your hair, so I suggest getting pins that match your hair {less likely to see them}. Keep in mind that it doesn’t need to look “perfect” since the whole idea of the ‘do is for it to look messy. You can use hairspray to keep the fly-aways in control, but I’ve found that I really don’t need it {and I have really, really fine fly-away hair}.

What I love most about this up do? I can wear it for days without taking it down. Not even kidding. I will do it one morning, then wear it up for 2-3 days until it’s time to wash my hair again. Since it’s all fairly well pinned down, it’s easy to sleep in; and if it’s messy in the morning, that just adds to the “look”.

Ooo very cute, someday when my hair is long enough I want to try it!

Love it! I get so many comments on this type of hair and it is so easy to do, except finding all the bobby pins when I am done! I could not sleep on it ever though!! And you don’t really need very long hair!

Sweet! I might have to try it. The idea of wearing it for a few days is VERY appealing. 🙂 Thanks!

[…] I decided to spruce up my ponytails by adding cute flowers to them. I will even add them to my favorite knotted up hair do. But, for some reason, I’ve never put flowers in my hair while it’s down. Until […]
