Knotted Pullback | Easy Hairstyles

This knotting style is perfect for combinations in hairstyles, such as pairing it into a ponytail, sock bun, messy bun, etc.

Your friends will definitely wonder how you did it!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 2 bobby pins, hairspray and accessory {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 2-5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Brush the hair so that it is parted to one side. You can leave the hair straight or style it with waves. {Even super curly hair will work for this hairstyle!}
  2. Pick up a small section from the front on the heavy side of the hair, the side where the majority of the hair falls…
  3. Split that section into two smaller strands…
  4. Now tie the first step of a knot just like you would begin to tie a shoelace. Pull that “knot” so that it sits snuggly against the head…
  5. While holding the two ends in your hands, add a small section of hair to each side. {Please allow me to clarify… you are going to add hair from both sides of the knot into each strand. So you will pick up hair on the right side of the head and add it to the right strand. Hair from the left side of the head will go into the left strand.}
  6. Now tie another Stage 1 knot as in Step #4, again pull until snug…
  7. Repeat Steps #5 and 6 until you have 3-5 knots…
  8. Secure ends with a tiny elastic that matches your hair in color…
  9. Now, pull up some hair near the top of your head at the end of the pullback.
  10. Pin the pullback against your head using crossed bobby pins…
  11. Now lay that top section of hair over the bobby pins, and end of the pullback, to help hide them.
  12. Feel free to add hairspray or an accessory.

There you go… pretty easy, right?  Feel free to try it and enjoy the compliments!

    • Some ungrateful people like you don’t appreciate what these amazing people have done for us! I applaud them, especially Mindy, on how far they have come since 2008 and I think I heard that the father even gave up his JOB to support his family in the magical world of hair.Not many husbands would leave their job to film their wife doing hairstyles on his kids. You are very lucky what these people have had to do in order to please us with all of these wonderful hairstyles!
