Salon Owner David Bamford says if we can tie a knot, then we can easily take our locks to the next level through knotted hairstyles. Here are a few easy, do it yourself styles to try!

 

LOOK #1: KNOTTED SIDE PONYTAIL

Grab a one-inch section from the ear to the nape of the neck. Separate the section into two pieces and knot. Then, double knot to secure the starting point.
Grab another section of hair right next to the first knot. Separate into two. Take the original knotted two strands, lay it on top of the new two strands, and tie a knot. Repeat this ‘separating, laying, and knotting’ until you’ve reached the other ear.
Then, tie knots down to the end of the hair until there is no hair remaining and secure with a rubber band.
On the same side that you’ve just rubber banded, there will be some hair around the forehead and in front of the ear remaining. Starting at the ear, knot this area to the end, rubber band, and bobby pin behind the ear and under the first set of knots.
Finger rouge the knots to give it a frizzy, static look, and you’re finished.

LOOK #2: KNOTTED HEADBAND (Best for gals with long hair)

Clip the hair in front of the ears out of the way.
Take a section of hair behind one ear, and start knotting a two-strand knot. Continue until the end and secure with a rubber band.
Repeat knots on the other side.
Remove clips and brush hair back.
Start forming head band. Grab one side, bring it to the top of the head, and secure with bobby pins along the braid.
Repeat on other side.
With the remaining hair left out, tuck them in and hide them. Finished!

LOOK #3: SINGLE KNOTS UPDO (Great for gals with fine hair)

Add a texturizing balm
Starting at the crown, take a pie section down the middle to about half way down the back of the head, single knot it, and bobby pin it.
Repeat the same thing to the right and left of the middle knot.
Take the extra hair surrounding the face and pin it underneath the first row of knots.
With the remaining hair under the first row of knots, separate the hair into two sections. Make a single knot in one section. Take that knot to the opposite side and pin it. Then, make knot with the other section, cross that knot to the opposite side and pin it.

LOOK #4: REBECCA’S HALF-UP ‘DO

Section the hair right behind and clip out of the way.
Half way down from the natural part, create another part parallel to that one on one side of the head. Clip the top part out of the way.
With the remaining hair, grab a small vertical section and do a series of double knots then pin toward the back of the head. Do another one with the remaining hair so there are two knotted strands.
Unclip the top section and do the same thing. However, this time, start the knots about one inch from the scalp and do three strands, rather than two.
Repeat the same pattern on the other side of the head.
Unclip the hair to cover the bobby pins.
To complete the look, flat iron the hair.


How to Achieve That Beachy Hair Look.

David Bamford, top hairstylist in Houston featured on TV Show, “Mirror, Mirror” showing how to achieve sexy, beach waves.

 

Messy, sexy, beach waves are still in style! Since this hair trend is sticking around, here are a few easy, yet unusual, ways to get waves!

Salon owner David Bamford says there are several ways to make waves, but here are a few you probably haven’t heard of:

BUTTERFLY CLIP WAVES

Have 10+ butterfly clips handy.
Spray thermal protector and texture spray in your hair (David uses Kevin Murphy Resort Spray).
Grab a small section of hair and lay it over your finger.
Clamp the butterfly clip over the hair, over your finger then pull your finger out of the clip leaving the clip in your hair.
Put another clip in your hair the same way right under the first clip (and another if your hair is long).
After you get a head full of clips, blast your head with the heat from a hair dryer.
Allow hair to cool about 10 minutes.
Take all of the clips out and tussle with your fingers.

DEEP WAVE CRIMPER

Start with a deep wave crimper (similar to a crimper from the 1990s, but with a deeper V formation)
Crimp hair all over the head.
Allow to cool.
Flip your head upside down and tussle with your fingers.

KNOT WAVES

Start with thermal protector and texture spray.
Grab a small section of hair and tie a knot.
Tie another knot directly under the first knot.
Tease the end of the hair to keep the knots in place.
Continue knotting and teasing until all of your hair is in knots!
Heat with a hairdryer and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
Take out the knots and toss with your fingers.
Apply a styling product to tame.

WAVE CLIPS

Start with Kevin Murphy Wave Clips.
Clip one clip in a small section of hair.
If hair is long, clip another wave clip underneath the first one.
When all your hair is clipped, heat with a hair dryer and allow to cool.
Remove the clips and toss with your fingers.
