Knot it up
1. Once you’ve teased your hair, gather all of it at the nape of your neck. Without losing too much volume, split your hair in half, down the center of your head.
2. Tie the two sections into a knot (the same way you would tie string). Then, tie the two sections again to create a double knot, and pull both ends to tighten it. Use two bobby pins on each side underneath the knot to secure it. (Tip: Use bobby pins that match your hair color to hide them.)
3. If the ends look too polished, use the small tooth-comb to backcomb right at the bottom to give it that messy look.
