Double Knotted Braids

When Brooklyn & Bailey were little, we used this hairstyle all the time. (Not sure why we stopped…?) Not too long ago I saw an old picture with this hairstyle and decided I should share with you!Double Knotted Braid | Cute Girls HairstylesDouble Knotted Braid | Cute Girls HairstylesShoelace Braid | Cute Girls HairstylesWe called this the double knotted braid but you may have heard of it as the shoelace braid.  It’s very similar to tying your shoes.  Shoelace Braid | Cute Girls HairstylesWith a little practice, you will find this hairstyle fairly quick and easy.  Double Knotted Braid | Cute Girls HairstylesTo see your own photo recreations of this style featured in our app, feel free to tag your photos on IG with: #CGHDblKnotBraids

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 2 small hair elastics, hairspray or spray wax {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 3-5 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

 

Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1. Start by parting the hair down the middle.
  2. I prefer to do this on wet hair.  If your hair is dry, spray a little water to dampen the hair.
  3. Go to the top front and pick up a small piece of hair and divide into two sections.
  4. Take the left section under the right and tie a knot like a shoe lace.  (see video for visual instructions)
  5. Add hair  to both pieces and use the same technique by crossing the left piece under the right and tie in a knot like a shoe lace.
  6. Repeat steps 4-5 until you run out of new hair to add.
  7. Secure with an elastic.
  8. Repeat steps 3-7 on the opposite side of the head.
  9. I added ribbons for a pop of fun.
