Easy Tutorial for Getting the Knotted Bun Look

3 Materials
5 Minutes

This is an easy tutorial for getting the knotted bun look. I love these types of looks when you don’t need any fancy clips or accessories because the hair is the accessory.

It’s a fun and modern way to create a really fresh and dynamic look.

Putting hair back

1. Put back half your hair

Take the top section of your hair from one side of your head.

Pull it to the back and tie it with a hair elastic. This will be the base you tie the knot around.

Then take the top section from the other side of your head, wrap it over, under and around the first section.
