This hair style requires waistlength or longer hair. If your hair is shorter than this, we provide an alternative option at the end of this tutorial.

Instructions:

step1 How To Make The Knotty Bun Hairstyle

Make a ponytail and twist the hair clockwise. A rubber band is optional but I recommend using it for slippery hair.

step2 How To Make The Knotty Bun Hairstyle

Twist the ponytail clockwise around the center. Give the length a couple extra twists as you wrap.

step3 How To Make The Knotty Bun Hairstyle

Push two fingers through the center of the hole in the bun and grab the loose hair.

step4 How To Make The Knotty Bun Hairstyle

Pull all the hair through the hole. Use your free hand to hold the bun in place close to your head. This will make a knot on top of your head.

step5 How To Make The Knotty Bun Hairstyle

Insert hair stick by pushing toward your head and weaving it back out the other side. Note: if you used a rubber band, you can insert the stick through the band, making the style more secure.

step6 How To Make The Knotty Bun Hairstyle

Insert the second hair stick from the other side. For added interest to this style, the loose hair can be curled, crimped or straightened.

If you do not have waist-length hair, try this style using only your crown section of hair. Curl, crimp or straighten shorter, loose strands to achieve a glamorous look.
