Ladies, in case you haven't noticed -- braids are one of the most popular hair crazes around the world. From the classic fishtail, to the more complex braided updo -- they're taking over and we're definitely not complaining about it. Whether it's a messy braid (seen in the video below) or something a little more sleek, there's just something about them that make us feel pretty and trendy.
If you love braids as much as we do, then prepare to be absolutely mesmerized by one of the most gorgeous braids we've ever seen. The "knot" is unlike any other braid you've done on yourself or seen on anyone else.
Start with a triangular section of hair from your hairline back to your crown
Separate that section of hair into two pieces and tie a knot.
Hold the two ends in your right hand and pull another piece of hair from the left side of your head
Create another knot with that piece and the section you were already holding in your right hand.
Hold the ends of the two pieces of hair you just knotted in your left hand and grab a section from the right side of your head to create another knot
Continue knotting, alternating from which side of your head you draw hair, all the way to your ends.

This hairstyle can look good nice and sleek, or a little messy. It makes it even more reason to have this as one of your go to hairstyles on busy days. The messy look isn’t a bad thing at all! Embrace it!
First off, braid a section on the side of your head. Do a french braid that is about 2-3 inches wide and french braid it to your ear. Finish off the braid to the ends after you get to the ear. Next, pancake the braid. You do this by putting an elastic in the bottom of the braid and holding the braid down by the elastic with one hand while you gently tug at each of the sections of the braid. It makes the braid look fat, full, and fabulous!
Pull your hair back (including the braid) into a low ponytail and before you pull your hair all the way through the last loop of the ponytail, don’t pull it all the way through. Leave a bubble on the bottom and have the ends of your hair facing up. All of this seems pretty normal, except for that random piece of hair that you see in the picture, right? Well, before you pull your hair into the ponytail, grab a section that is about 3 inches wide on the opposite side of your braid and have it stay outside of your ponytail.
