    Does thickness affect this style? And/or does hair need to be really long for it? My hair is between waist and hip, closer to hip, and when I try this I have MAYBE 3 inches of hair sticking out for the ponytail. Also, the only way I can get a tail is by wrapping around 2 or 3 fingers rather than the whole hand, which makes it much harder for me to pull the tail through. My hair is also slippery and it's hard to get it to stay in the knot long enough to stab it with a fork.

    Any tips? I like the idea of this style!

    gin, if you haven't already, definitely try SarahLabyrinth's Lazy Wrap ponytail linked in the first post. It gives the same look as a knot but leaves the full length of your ponytail.
    Finally made a signature!

    So funny story, what I was trying WAS the Lazy Wrap ponytail! I just tried the actual comet knot and it's definitely much more difficult for me.
