How-To Video: Knotted Updo

This week Ruth creates disheveled knots and braids with fellow Pureology Artistic Director, Wendy Bélanger. Knots are a fresh take on updos, especially when texturized before tying…and working with natural texture is always a plus when creating braided looks as it gives them more character. These are undone, yet glamorous and perfect for the holiday season!
