Back to School Hairdo: Twist-Back into Square Knot

August 14, 2009

Begin by straightening hair. This step isn’t necessary, but I like the look better if the hair is straight. It makes the knot stand out a bit more. If your DD’s hair is naturally straight then you are all set!

Items Needed: Brush, comb, hair straightener, bobby pins, and hairspray (pomade optional).

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Now part hair wherever natural part falls. Section off a small piece on each side of the head and twist it back. You can use a little Pomade to help the twists stay together and eliminate flyers from static…

Take the two pieces and tie half a knot. Like you are tying a shoelace. One piece under the other and tighten them against the head. You will now have this…


Now using bobby pins secure this in place. I do it in such a way that the bobby pins are hidden. I think I used about 4-5 bobby pins…


Once the first 1/2 of the knot is secure take the remaining ends and tie together again in the same way… like you are doing a double knot. I think the official name of this is a “square knot“. Use bobby pins to secure in place once again. Leave the ends sticking out a little and fluff if necessary. Use hairspray to help hold in place…
