Why not try something a little different this Valentine’s Day? Give this knot braid hairstyle a try! Combining classic luscious curls with this season’s hot braid trend, you’ll be onto a winner with this look. Our Creative Director Kieron Fowles show you how to create the style at home…
STEP 1: Begin by applying a smoothing cream like TIGI Bed Head After Party to damp tresses to combat frizz before blow drying.
STEP 2: Separate a central section of hair on the top of the head.
STEP 3: Take two small sections from the hairline and gently tie them into a knot.
STEP 4: Take two more sections and add them to the front two, tying together again.
STEP 5: Repeat the process, bringing in more sections of hair until you reach the crown. Then continue to knot just the two sections until you reach the ends of the hair.
STEP 6: Repeat the process on each side of the head.
STEP 7: Pull the three braids together and secure with a hair tie.
STEP 8: Pull the loose hair through the gaps between the braids.
STEP 9: Use a large barrel curling tong like the ghd Curve Soft Curl Tong to loosely curl 3-4 inch sections of hair. Once the curls have cooled, gently brush them through to soften the finish and spray with a shine mist like TIGI Bed Head Headrush.
