Pretzel Knot Headband Hairstyle

 Knotted Hair Headband
A style idea using pretzel knots.

Unfortunately we didn't make a video or step by step photo instructions for this hairstyle.  We did this style the other day for school and decided  it was just too cute not to share...so we are!  Just another fun idea using the pretzel / celtic knot we posted the other day. Click here: Pretzel Knot Video if you are not sure how to make the knots.  As a side note: If I did this again, I would definitely scrunch up those knots to center them more over the middle of the headband (hindsight.) 

We used a total of 8 tiny elastics to create this style  (4 in the front and 4 behind the headband in the back.)  I have found it is easier to add the elastics in the front first, and then place the headband.  After I placed the headband where we wanted it, I added the knots, and lastly secured them with the elastics behind the headband.

This style could be made with or without a headband or ribbon underneath the knots.  I think the headband really makes the knots stand out and pop instead of just blending into the hair though.  My friend Becky over at "Babes In Hairland" introduced us to the idea of placing a headband using elastics quite awhile ago, and we utilize the idea quite often with different styles! 

Enjoy!
