This hair barette (half up) style was inspired by a Youtube video showing how to create a pretzel knot (or celtic knot) bracelet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6nGKJ... This knot can be challenging at first, but with practice, becomes quite easy and quick. It is definitely helpful to spray the hair with water or hair gel before you begin. This hairstyle would be cute for teens, moms, girls.... all ages! You will need fairly long hair to create the knot. If you are working with shorter hair, I would suggest using strands from the top of the head that are close together (to fully utilize the length.) I have seen this knot called a Carrick Bend, Infinity Knot, Pretzel Knot, nautical knot, or Celtic Knot. I think this looks most like a pretzel made from hair, so we are going with that!
