Ponytail Hairstyles: Learning the Double Knot


Detangle hair.

Wash hair with Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smoothing Shampoo followed by Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Smoothing Conditioner to start your hair off with a sleek and frizz-free base. Be sure to brush or comb your hair to thoroughly remove tangles. If you are doing this hairstyle on-the-go and don’t have any hair care products available gently use your fingers to detangle, beginning at the very ends of your hair and work your way up.

Create two sections.

Create two equal sections in your hair, then twist them over one another. Hold your hair in place and proceed to the next step.

Create first tie.

Loop hair sections into each other as if you were fastening a pair of shoelaces or a bow. Hold hair taut and pull this first loop tight to keep it in place.

Create second tie.

Loop ends into one another again, and gently pull to create the section part of the knot. This tie will be a bit looser than the first since you want to create an effortless looking hanging effect to your ponytail.

Knots in place.

Your hair should now look like this. If you do have styling tools available, you can add in hairpins to secure the base of your ponytail. Additionally, if you want this hairstyle to last throughout the day, finish it off with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray.
