Braided Knot Pony

Looking for a fresh take on a classic three-strand braid? Jenny Strebe (@theconfessionsofahairstylist) shares her how-to for creating a beautiful mermaid style your clients are sure to love. Combining a traditional three-strand braid with funky knots gives this look a fashion-forward edge that’s perfect for every type of client. “I’m really into combining a few different braids with knots because I feel it creates a really different hairstyle,” notes Jenny. Whether she wants a casual day look or an elegant evening style, this look fits the bill. Kenra Ultra Freeze Spray 30 locks this style in place all day and all night! Here’s how it’s done!

    Moving forward, split the hair into three sections, leaving some of the middle hair out. This is where you’re going to connect your knotted hairstyle to your braids.
