Knotted Braid Tutorial
Hey guys! Sorry I've been MIA lately! I've been super busy with moving and finishing up the last touches to my wedding! (in less than a month!!!!!!) While I'm getting more and more excited for my 12 day trip to Mexico for wedding and honeymoon I knew I needed to get back to posting on here! My lovely friend Morgan Newton, who's filmed all my tutorials thus far, sat down with me *gasp* all the way back in April to film this tutorial! I wanted to focus this tutorial on a no-heat braid because I want to have my hair grow as long as possible with as little heat damage as possible. In order to do that I needed to step away from my signature look of beachy waves and focus more on BRAIDS! This knotted braid is super easy to do and I've done this look in several Braids & Bikinis shoots, one being the Salton Sea/For Love and Lemons shoot and another the Venice Beach/Bossa shoot! This braid can be worn several different ways and its easy to learn, just like making a... knot!
Start with a small section, in this tutorial I'm doing a french knot braid and incorporating all my hair.
Divide section into two holding each section in different hands, tie a knot using both sections of hair. Don't think too hard about this, it's just a knot, like you've always done!
Add more hair to each section making your original section a little thicker, now knot this section. Again don't think too hard about this!
Continue all the way down your hair incorporating more hair as you go and tie with small elastic at ends to secure braid!
Unless you're really good at this it'll most likely look really loose for your first time! That's great, work with it! Use the palms of your hands and lightly rub your front hairline to release "wispy" pieces to accentuate the looseness of the braid!
