Knotted Roll and Tuck Updo

I’ve found that my hair grows best when I leave it alone! Therefore I’ve been wearing updos, twists and braids about 90% of the time. Because I protective style most of the time, I have to find styles that are work-friendly, elegant and relatively easy to complete. This updo is one of my go-to protective styles because it is so simple, but still looks very elegant and intricate. Keep reading below to see I how I complete my very simple knotted roll and tuck updo!

Knotted Roll and Tuck Updo

Step 1

Work on stretched hair. Part hair down the side and separate front two sections with hair clips.

Step 2

Start with the back of the hair. Separate two sections on both sides.

Step 3

Tie the two sections together as if you were tying a knot.

Take the left-over hair from the first knot, gather more hair from below and tie another knot.

Repeat Step 4 until you reach the end of your hair (I had 3 knots).

Bobby pin the left-over hair around both sides of the last knot.

Now move to the front two sections you separated in the beginning and make 3-4 loose, chunky twists.

Step 10

Bobby pin the last 1-2 loose twists around the same side they are on. Keep the twists fluffy so that they create a voluminous look.
