Instructions
1. Take dry hair in your two hands, and pull in backwards towards the nape of your neck.
2. Separate the hair into an upper and lower layer, as if you were doing a half-up style. Take the upper section hold at the crown of your head. If you have bangs or shorter layers, allow them to fall free and frame your face.
3. Split the upper section into right and left sections, then tie the two together in a knot.
4. Take a small section of the hair from the lower area which you left out of the original knot into each side of your newly created knot. Then recreate the same knotting motion. Think of it like a French braid, but only using two strands instead of three.
5. Repeat this move a final time, incorporating all of your hair. Hold at the base of your neck with one hand, and use the other to fan out the knots.
