    Thank you, BerrySara!

    I'm wearing a lazy wrap ponytail today. I've really enjoyed it!

    These all look incredible! Sarah I love the light in your pic.

    Last time I tried this, I didn’t have enough length to tie it (please excuse the spider bite on my neck)

    I tried this the other week. Issue I ran into: if the "loop" was big enough for me to pull my hand back through, I had trouble tightening the knot as the knot itself would tighten to its max before I got it up against my head. I had to try to put as few fingers through as possible as could still grip the hair to pull it through (and leave as small of an opening as possible that the hair would still fit through) and then tighten very carefully. The other problem is that care must be taken in orientation of the knot-- if the part where your hair comes through is at the top rather than the bottom, you get a weird "waterfall" effect of hair cascading over the hidden knot, rather than a visible knot with the hair coming out of it.

    Yeah,it took me about 10-15 minutes and several tries before I got one that didn't necessarily look good, it just iddn't look ridiculous! This is going to take way more practice than I expected (it was not something to attempt for the first time while just running to the bathroom at work quickly!).

    Once I got it in, I liked it okay. Easy to secure with a couple hairsticks.

    Thanks expecto, kept it in for about 5 minutes then wanted my bun back haha. Yeah Kat, I ran into the same issues with tightness and angles. I think it was a combination of luck and fluke that got it on like the 6 th try.

    Lovely knots ladies, I really enjoyed scrolling through this thread.

    I tried this today and mine looked like a floppier version of yours, Tinyponies. I couldn't get the knot to sit nice and tight against my scalp. Also, because of how tapered my lengths are, the knot to tail ratio didn't look very nice on me. I think I'll have to wait a year or two before I attempt this one again.

    Thanks, Tinyponies, it was right before sunset where you get that golden soft light . Your hair is just the perfect length for a beautiful knot pony!
