5. As you are holding the look, take the other chunk of hair right next to your look but don`t let them mix. Pay attention, this is going to be sensitive. As you have completed the loop with your left hand, hold it and grab the chunk from your right hand. Hold the other chunk with your Pinky. This way, both chunks will be kept apart as your hand is between them.

13.  As you have pulled the strand, and it should start resembling a Celtic knot.  Don`t worry if you don`t do it right for the first time. It had taken me eight tries before I reached perfection. It`s time to fiddle up the strands together. Loosen the knot a bit and give your knot voluminous look.
