How to Create Textured Knots

Step 1) Prep the hair with Ouidad Play Curl Volumizing Styling Spray ($22, to boost the volume and texture of your hair.

Step 2) Tousle dry the hair, then boost the appearance of natural texture by using a 3-barrel waving iron.

Step 3) Use Ouidad Wave Create Sea Spray ($23, Ouidad.comto break up the texture, hold the style and provide a matte finish.

Step 4) Gather the hair back into a ponytail and use a hair tie to lightly secure the hair.

Step 5) Use hair pins to create an easy breezy knot with soft wisps at the neck.

Step 6) Finish with Salon Series by Ouidad Mongongo Oil Multi Use Hair Treatment ($36, to smooth frizzies and flyaways.
