half knot tutorial

we LOVE the half knot hair trend! it's a perfect style for 'dirty' mid week hair, a post workout do or you can dress it up for a night out.  high fives all around!

step 1: part your hair from the corners of your forehead to your crown. I like to use one hand to pull both sides back or both of my index fingers.

if I am working with clean hair - which is a little rare ;) I will tease the section that I am putting up at the roots.

I like to loosen it + add volume a bit by pulling a few pieces forward.

step 2: hold your hair in a pony and wrap it somewhat loosely around your index and middle finger making a little bun.
