Simple Summer ‘Do: The Knotted Half Updo

You can make this casual half updo in the time it takes to tie a knot. Really! It’s easy, fresh, and perfect for any day, outfit, or social gathering!




Knotted Half Updo



I like the casual, effortless feeling this cute half updo evokes. Wear it for an everyday look, or wear it to dress down an outfit. The hairstyle would pair perfectly with a party dress and heels or with jeans and a cute T-shirt. The hairstyle works well on medium to long hair and different textures. I did it on straight hair because it´s my favorite way to wear it. Follow these steps to create the look:



Knotted Half Updo Steps 1-2


1. Take a piece of hair from each side of the face.


2. Create a knot in the back with the two pieces of hair.

3. Make one more knot so you have a double knot


4. Secure the knot with a bobby pin, crossing over the end of the knot just under the knot you created. Also secure the knot on the other side from up to down, making sure you hide the bobby pin under the knot.



Now you have a cute knotted half updo—easy peasy!
