weekend hair: THE DOUBLE KNOT

YOU ALREADY KNOW I’M A HUGE FAN OF THE ‘MESSY’ DO

so you can imagine how happy I was when I discovered these step-by-step how-to-do’s for the double knot:


1. To ensure that your hair has enough texture for the hairstyle to hold, use a spray-in mousse applied to the roots and work through with a hair dryer; if you have flat or fine hair, simply apply more mousse or use a surf spray.

2. Using a comb, divide hair down the centre, beginning at the crown of the head and finishing at the nape of the neck.

3. Hold both sections of hair separately, ensuring that you have all strands of hair in your hands.

4. Tie a single knot in much the same way you would tie any knot, placing one section of parted hair over the other, then looping that section though the created hole, pulling the two parts tightly.

5. Now that you have a single hair knot, repeat {step four} to tie a second knot, layering on top of the previous one; twist slightly for effect.

6. Secure with a bobby pin through the right hair part and hair knot, and another pin through the left hair part and hair knot; you may also wish to use a third bobby pin for the second knot created; finish with hair spray to hold any stray strands in place.
