How To Create a Flower Knot Braid

Adding accents to our guests’ hair adds value!  The process is not time consuming and can easily be done to compliment the end result.

In this video, we're going to show you a very easy, cool and unique trick by tying two sections of the hair into a flower knot braid pattern.  Just as in braiding and knotting, it’s all in the rhythm.

Before braiding the hair, texturize the hair with the Sam Villa Texturizing Iron.  The indentations created with Texturizing Iron enable the hair to have more ‘tack’ - any style prepped with Texturizing Iron will have staying power and added textured interest.  (An alternative approach to create this look if you do not have the time to prep the entire head is to just prep the two front sections).

Product plays an important role in all styling creations – product is a necessity, not an option.
