We have had enough of sleekest twisted braids which have been worn by many women as these are the easiest hairstyles a woman can make at home. The newest version of twist is cornrow on the temple and then intricate weaving, which might be easy to handle especially if you are a beginner. It’s not like twisting the hair loops and making a braid, pinning it up to complete the makeup, in fact it’s very complicated.

Fortunately, there are some twirled knots that you can try on your lovely hair as they are a nice alternative of simple knotted braid which takes time and a lot of energy for being complicated. You sometimes feel angry on your knots loosening up in the middle, they are not suitable for silky hair.

Twirled knots look very impressive on two toned hair. If your hair has ombre in it, you will receive a lot of compliments for the style, if you have dyed your hair in two colors you will enjoy the combination of dark and black in your braid for sure. Anyways let’s get started with the tutorial of twirled knots.
