Here’s how to create a knotted braid
1. Split hair into two and knot
2. Add to each section from both sides and knot again
3. Repeat knot down head and tie with elastic
4. Roll under the nape and secure with grip to create an effortless knotted braid up-do
step one: Split hair into two and knot
Starting at the crown, split the hair to create two equal sections and create a knot with the two strands.
step two: Add to each section from both sides and knot again
Take another section of hair from both sides of the head, cross over and create another knot.
step three: Repeat knot down head and tie with elastic
Continue steps one and two down the entire head, creating knots with the sections of hair until the ends. Then secure place with an elastic tie.
step four: Roll under the nape and secure with pin
To finish the knotted braid, roll the end of the braid up to the nape and tuck underneath, using a bobby pin to secure it in place.
