Getting Knotty

Here’s a look that works best for medium to long hair. Scarbrough tells us how to get this style:

1. For this look, pull your hair into a traditional ponytail at the nape of your neck. Secure with an elastic, and then separate your hair into two sections.

2. Separate one section again and tie it into a knot around your original ponytail.

3. Secure the outer edge of your knot with pins directed in toward the elastic.

4. Finger-comb the loose ends to bring all the pieces of your ponytail back together.
