Hair Romance - Knot a braid hair tutorial

Is it a braid? No, it’s knots!

Yes, it’s a terrible pun but I had to do it. This cute style pretends to be a braid but really it’s a series of knots. Best of all, it’s really easy to do.

Hair Romance - Blondes Week

This hairstyle tutorial marks the start of Blondes Week on Hair Romance! Curls Week was a hit so I’m keeping these theme weeks going. Don’t worry brunettes and redheads, your time is coming soon.

This knot-braid style is perfect for blondes, but it will also look great for brunettes or redheads. Ideally you want to have a mix of tones in your hair so that it highlights the detail in this style. Often in darker hair that’s all one colour, it’s difficult to create styles that stand out.

I’ve had this photo in my inspiration folder for ages. I love how her style looks like a braid but is really just a series of knots. It’s so simple to do and it can be worn in lots of ways.

Hair Romance - the Knot a braid hair style tutorial

Even if you can’t braid, you should give this hairstyle a try. It’s knot as hard as it looks! (and I promise that’s the last pun too)
