How to Create a Knotted Ponytail | Cute Hairstyles


[MUSIC – “PICTURE PERFECT”] -Hey guys. I’m Mindy from Cute
Girls Hairstyles and this is, of course, Camry. -Hi guys. -And today we’re
going to show you how to do a knotted ponytail. Now the best part
about this hairstyle is it’s most effective
when your hair is wet. So, if you’re running
late to school or your just out of
the shower, or you have an after school
practice where you have to shower when you’re
done, or you just go done swimming, this is a
great hairstyle for you. OK now, to begin
this hairstyle, I’ve gone ahead and just
done three little flips in the front of her
hair, only because I just love to add a little dimension
in the front of the ponytail. But, basically, what
you’re going to need to do is have your hair pulled
into high ponytail. And you can see her hair is
wet and I have my trusty water bottle here. This is just water
in case it, you know, dries out a little bit. I can spray it down. So, you can either spray it or
just jump out of the shower, either one. And then you’re
going to take a comb and you’re going to
want to just smooth the hair as much as possible. So make sure you are combing
through combing any knots or little rough spot out
until it’s pretty smooth. When you’re done doing
that, I have two clips. You’re going to need two
of these little tiny clips. I just have them
clipped on her shirt so that I know where they’re at. I’m going to reach back
behind the ponytail and pull just a little
tiny piece of hair. So, not too big. You can do big if you want. I just like the way they look
when they’re a little smaller. I want a little
bit more than that. And you kind of want them
coming from the middle of the ponytail. So when you get your
little sections, you’re going to take them, and
I comb them out again because now, see they have
a few rough edges. So it’s best if you just kind
of give them a nice little comb, so they are nice and smooth. At this point, this
is optional, you can even take a little bit of
dry wax and just gently spritz on there. Or even use some
pomade if you want to make them really
looks smooth. You’re going to tie a knot. I’ll do it again. I’m just taking the pieces,
just like a shoelace, just once and then pull it down tight
against the ponytail like this. Now, this is where
the clips come in. You’re going to
take this and we’re going to clip it to the side. Take this end and just
clip it to this side. That way we don’t have
to use extra hands. You can do it on
yourself if you want to, but we’re still holding
that knot in place. And we’re going to
reach back again. Pull little section of hair. Right here. Reach back towards the middle. Pull another little
section of hair. And again, you can see that
they’re kind of cattywampus. So, I’m just going to go
ahead and comb through. Make them nice and smooth. Again, dry wax optional. And then I’m going
to tie another knot right on top of the first one. We’re going to pull
it pretty tight. It’ll loosen naturally as we go. Now I’m just going to move
these down a little bit more and hang onto that
newest add in. You’re going to reach behind. You can see this is kind
of a repeating pattern at this point. Get my section of hair I want. Come around front. Comb them out. And tie it in a knot. And the farther down
we go, the more you’re going to see the hair
hanging like this draping effect on the sides. And that’s fine. Just keep moving those down. [MUSIC PLAYING] Now about halfway
down, I’m going to go back just with
my comb and make sure everything is nice
and smooth, very gently here, specifically underneath. You just want to kind of
comb out anymore knots and we’re going
to continue to go. Make sure when you’re
clipping, another trick is that you’re clipping these
just to the very outside edges so that it holds
that knot in place. If you clip in the center,
the knot kind of pulls funny. So, we ‘re going to keep going. [MUSIC – “PICTURE PERFECT”] OK. So when you get to
the end, and you’ll know when you’re done because
you start running out of hair and the little pieces
start falling out as you’re tying those knots,
as it shortens the hair. Just take an
elastic, and go ahead and secure the entire thing off. Nice ponytail. And then if you
want, could go back and these move a
little tiny bit, so if you don’t like the spacing
exactly the way they are, you can adjust just a
little bit accordingly. And you are all finished. And not only does it leave this
really pretty knotted affect on the front, it gives you this
really pretty draped effect on the sides which is really
fun and kind of unique as well. OK guys, let’s do the final
spin on this hairstyle. Voila! It’s like a snaky ponytail. You’re thinking it’s just a
normal pony tail and then BAM! It’s not normal BAM! Normal. BAM! That’s pretty cool. Anyway, don’t forget
guys that we just had our app release
a couple weeks ago. We’re really excited about it. It required a ton of work. If you want to find it, I’ll
put a link in the description box below as well as a link
at the end of the video. So go check it out. As a mom, I personally love
it because it kind of keeps the kids on my channel
only instead of, you know, out into
the YouTube space where they might stumble
upon other thing, which is really nice. But it’s also very searchable
and very user friendly which I appreciate. And gives you access to
all of our hairstyles which is fantastic. Do you have anything to add? -Just love you guys and have a
great time with this hairstyle. -Perfect! We’ll wrap it up. See you guys next Sunday. Bye guys. [MUSIC – “PICTURE PERFECT”]
