This pretty style is quite simple & resembles our Twisted Knot Hairstyle I did several months back. It’s a great one when you are wanting to get the hair out of your face but is just a bit fancier than two braids joined in the middle on the back of your head.
Step 1 – Part the hair
You can part your hair however you like to get the 2 sections of hair on either side of the head. We did an off-center part and then parted down to the ears.
Step 2 – Braid
On both sides, braid the hair that you’ve parted out in front of the ear. Temporarily secure the ends of each braid. You could give this a messier look by doing much looser, flat pancake like braids if you want.
Step 3 – Pull the braids back so they meet in the middle
Step 4 – Cross the braids
Step 5 – Make a half knot
Just like you’re going to start tying your shoe – I passed the left braid over the right braid and then tucked it under the right braid, pulling the left braid back over the top. You are not going to make a full square knot here — just half of one.
Step 6 – Secure the knot with a rubber band
You could stop here, but we took it a bit further!
Step 7 – Loosen the braided knot
I wanted to loosen or “mess” up the braid of the knot, so I gently pulled on the plaits a bit to make it messier.
Step 8 – Wrap the rubber band
I didn’t want to put a flower or bow in or it would have covered up our fun little knot, so I covered up the rubber band by wrapping it with some of her hair like I showed in our post HERE. Then I curled the ends of her hair ever so slightly with my flat iron.
