How to make a Greek knot?
- The Greek knot is a classic and very feminine style, inspired by the images of the beauties of ancient Hellas.
- Hair should be combed on a straight part and curled in soft, not too steep curls with the help of curling iron or curlers.
- Then most of the hair is collected in a knot at the back of the head - tight or more loose, as you like. The knot can be fixed with pins, combs, ribbons.
- Several thin light curls are released from the knot and frame the cheeks.
This hairstyle can be worn with a bang or without. If the forehead is open, then as an original accessory, a beautiful head bandage or hoop is suitable.
"Shell" - another classic option. This hairstyle at first glance may seem strict, but its sophistication is simply stunning. At the same time, it is quite appropriate in combination with an evening gown, and with a business suit.
There are several options for constructing a "shell", we offer you one of them.
- The hair gathers in a high tail, but not on the vertex, but slightly away from it, to the left.
- Now they need to start twisting into a bundle. As the twisting, the tourniquet becomes denser, folding a small loop at the top. At this stage it needs to be fixed - best of all with the help of an ordinary small scallop.
- With a concave side down, stick it into the harness on the left and then turn it to the right - this will perfectly fix the "shell".
Additionally, studs can be used. The tips of the hair you can hide under the tourniquet, and you can reverse the issue, slightly dishevel or curl - this will make the styling a little more relaxed and frivolous.
"Ponytail" is a very well-known hairstyle, andAlmost universal. Like the "shell", with the help of styling and various accessories "tail" can be built for a solemn occasion, and for every day.

Hair at the back of the head is better to fix using hair clips or clasp-invisibility - so the hair will look neater.
To hide the gum and give the styling a special charming note, separate one strand from the tail and wrap it around the base of the tail, hiding the tip with small pins.
You can wrap the entire tail around the base and fix it, thus obtaining an original high beam.
"Ponytail" is equally good and without bangs, and with a thick straight or oblique bangs, and with a light, "torn".
