The Knotted Headband | Back-to-School Hairstyles

I always appreciate when our fans email links or photos of hairstyles I have not seen previously.

This knotted headband style was emailed to us by a fan from St. Petersburg, Russia and we really loved the look of it!

It looks complex, but if you know how to do the first step of tying your shoelaces, then you can certainly do this braid! The pattern to the braid is essentially overlaying loose square knots.

  1. I started with the hair wet, and used a little pomade to control the flyways.
  2. You then take as small section next to the part, and divide it in two, and interlace them just like the first step of tying your shoe. I then did this two more times, each time adding the top strands to an alligator clip.
  3. After creating your third set of strands, bring the first two strands under the next two, and interlace them again just like the first step of tying your shoe.
  4. Repeat these steps until the braided headband has the look you want.
  5. Secure the end with a bobby pin and spritz with hairspray as desired.
  6. When the hair dries, the loops of the knots spread out a little and look absolutely gorgeous!

This braid is perfect for any formal occasion, or for dancers, cheerleaders, or simply wearing around town! It can also be worn in any number of combinations for a super cute and unique hairstyle!

The knotted headband is also great for women of any age!  We have worn it on my CGH#4 {fourth daughter with short hair}, and I have done this braid on myself as well!

  4. CGH! First of all, I wanted to let you know that I absolutely LOVE all of your styles and videos. You are very clear on things and I really appreciate that. I LOVE doing hair but unfortunately, my 5 sisters I have have super super thin hair and normally doesn’t end up looking right. I wanted to try some stuff on my hair but there isn’t I lot I can do on myself. Would it be possible to make a section for styles to do on yourself? Thanks!
