Technique: Bowerman shares how to create her “knotty updo.”

Saretta Bowerman Updo

1) Curl hair with a 1.25-inch curling iron.

2) Tease the front fringe area and create a small bump, securing with bobby pins.

3) Take two sections from either side of the head, meet in the middle behind the bump, and create a knot.

4) Continue these knots, adding previous hair to the next until you reach the nape.

5) Pin the last knots up into a small bun.

6) Wrap updo in a Pink Pewter headband.
