    Default Great updo video

    I just stumbled upon a great updo. It's the same concept as French braiding, but entails "knotting" two strands.

    If you do it, please post a pic here. I'll do the same!

    hmmm... the knots aren't really staying right now, maybe on wet hair?

    That's a pretty updo, but I won't be trying it. I'm afraid it would be an nightmare to take apart.

    Yes, you need to be very careful..not only undoing the knots, but knotting them in the same direction each time you knot.

    I've seen an updo with knots..very pretty..but have never attempted it.


    Thanks for the video link, Neoma!

    I've done the braid crown with knots and few other styles, and actually i had no probles at all to take them off. But really need to be carefull while making knots, and making sure that you really taking whole strand into knot. I think knots are the best for not too curly hair.

    You're welcome, Madora.

    Good point about making all the knots in the same direction.
