A couple of weeks ago, Molly and Belle came by to give me (and YOU) a DIY braid tutorial. One creation was so special, so romantic, I knew it had to be for a Valentine weekend event.
The Zinnia Knot works on any hair type shoulder length or longer. Start with your hair texturized to keep the knot in place and give it volume.
Divide your hair into four sections, two on the right and two on the left. Braid each section into a traditional three-strand braid and secure the ends with a clear elastic.
Start with the lower braid on the left hand side. Wrap it slightly up and towards the right side of your head, securing with pins as you go. If your hair is longer, twist the braid back towards the left, continuing to pin.
Next, wrap the lower braid on the right hand side towards the left. Keep the braid nice and tight against the first braid.
Repeat the process with the two upper braids, overlapping each section slightly for lots of volume. Make sure everything is secure and tuck in any loose ends. Work your fingers through the entire knot, loosening slightly for a more relaxed, boho look.
That's it! An elegant, romantic updo, finished in just minutes.
