French Knotted Bun Tutorial

1. Flip the head over and take two small sections of hair from the nape at the bottom hairline. Tie these sections together once.

2. Now add a bit of hair to both sides like you would a braid, but instead of braiding them, tie them together!

3. Repeat by adding more hair to both sides and knotting.

4. Do this again, working your way towards the top of the head.

5. Now, gather all the remaining hair, twist it together and wind it into a bun on top of the head.

6. Use your bobby pins or pretty comb to secure the look.

This hairstyle will loosen a bit and soften throughout the day, but do not fret. It just gets more beautiful with more wear!
