Day 28: Funky Knotties {30 Days, 30 Ways}

Day Twenty-Eight : Funky Knotties
Skill To Learn: Full Head of Coiled Knots
Difficulty: Moderate
Time Commitment: 20 Minutes
What You Need: Gel, Comb, A Bunch of Bobbies

For Day Twenty-Eight of 30 Days, 30 Ways, I’m going to offer you a funky version of the knotties we learned on Day Fifteen.   This look won’t be for everyone or everyday, I know, but I wanted to throw it in the mix anyway, because sometimes there are days or events where the funky knotties are just the thing! 

Begin with a damp head, not too wet, but not too dry.  Start sectioning out hair in small squares and/or triangles and coiling them into individual buns, anchored with crossed bobbies.  Just work from the front to the back, trying to keep the partings as clean as possible.  If it makes it easier, you can subdivide your hair into two sides or even quadrants and work through the sections that way.  I opted not to because I think the randomness of the partings compliments the randomness of the knotties themselves.  

And just know, that when you take this hairstyle out at the end of the day, it’s gonna look a little bit crazy.  Seriously.  But honestly, I have been known to take that wiry, hot mess and tease it a little and wear it as a separate style.  Add in a big flower and you just took funky to a whole new level!  😀

Have a great day and remember that someone needs a ray of light today that only you can shine.
Make time for inspiration, be yourself without apology and always light your world with goodness!
