I could not, for the life of me, get this to work in my hair. I have mid back length hair, but I can’t seem to get steps 2 & 3 to work. I can’t get the tail end to not go through the knot. Maybe my hair is too slick?? Maybe not long enough? All I know is that I really want this to work and it isn’t! Can somebody point me to a video of this so I can watch somebody do it?

Step 1: Put hair in ponytail.
Step 2: Twist.
Step 3: Pixies and leprechauns show up and use magic to make hair look perfect.

I love the knotted bun and this tutorial is so helpful! It is such a beautiful classic look that can look so chic on straight hair and a little boho with textured hair. Love this!
