Definition  
Hair is a modified form of epithelium and grows from a papilla upwards from its bulb. The Hair follicle bulb is divided into a lower and upper section. The lower section is composed of mitotic or dividing cells. The upper section has the cells that produce the inner hair sheath and the hair shaft. Hair consists of the outer layer which is the cuticle, the middle layer or the cortex and the inner layer or the medulla.

A perfect hair knot is one of the simplest ideas to jazz up the back of any hair. The most important part of having a hair knot is that it look immaculate and be pinned securely. If your hair is too short to form a hair knot you can clip on a fake ponytail and twist it into the knot of your choice.
