{winter hair how to: the double knot}

perfectly-pretty-hed-23
double-knot2

. . . have had this fun tutorial planned for well over a week now, as a follow-up to the ultra-chic and wildly popular side chignon, {which some of you had great success with}, but in all this week's excitement, hadn't a chance to post until now . . . perfect for unruly winter hair, this look is a beautiful, more casual alternative to the sleek classic chignon and goes easily from a day at the office to dinner reservations at seven . . .




knotted2

{step one}
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

{step two}
using a comb, divide hair down the center, beginning at the crown of the head and finishing at the nape of the neck



knotted3

{step three}
hold both sections of hair separately, ensuring that you have all strands of hair in your hands

knotted4

{step four}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

knotted5

{step five}
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


double-knot4

{step six}
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

knotted1

{step seven}
a romantic silk or lacy blouse and a spritz of heady perfume and you're set for late matinée or an afternoon at the shops . . .


{p.s.} perhaps a little more ambitious than the side chignon, and may require an extra set of hands, but if you do attempt, would love to hear! x

Oh, I had seen this hairdo but thought it was too complicated to even attempt it... I just tried it on my daughter, and it looks pretty good for a first attempt... Hope it is as easy to do it on myself - and keep all my hair! ;-P
Thank you for sharing! Xo, Si-

This is a lovely idea! I might have to ask for some help, but I would love to try the look this weekend... Also, have you tried the side chignon?

So many great things coming your way Roséline—I'm so happy for you!

Going to try to attempt this in the next week - I saw it earlier today on fashionising. Might need a girlfriend to help me out.

Congrats again on the Lonny feature. Can't wait to see all of the fabulous things you do in 2011!

xx, C

I love this! I'm often tying my hair in a knot to get it out of the way but it rarely lasts longer than a couple of minutes - at Last I have a way to keep it in place! "Undone Hairdos" are my favourite...

Julie and Lauren [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

Amazing how-to! I'll let you know when I try it. New follower.

That's so cute! I'm going to get my sister-in-law to help me out with this because I'm helpless in the hair department!

Alice [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

This is amazing!
I remember seeing a photo of a knotted hair do a while back. I filed it away somewhere and kept trying to figure out how to make it work!
Then months and months passed by without me ever figuring how to do the knot. I showed the photo to all of my friends to no avail! I think I gave up on ever doing it myself :(
One day, out of the blue, I stumbled across this blog! Somehow, I found my way to this post and I remembered the photo that I had saved away somewhere! So yay! Life works in mysterious ways :)

One of these days, I'll have to try this hair do! If I'm successful, I'll definitely share some photos on my blog.

Thank you guys so much for this lovely tutorial! <3
