ROPE BRAID

This ain’t your ordinary braid; it’s easier, more chic and definitely unique!

  1. Create a side part on the opposite side where you want your braid to be
  2. Start with a small rectangular section of hair and divide it into two
  3. Take the front section and pull it over to the back
  4. Add more hair to the front section and cross it over to the back again
  5. Repeat steps until you reach the area around your ear
  6. Make sure that the twists are tight and smooth as you go
  7. Once you reach your ear, add thicker chunks of hair to your twists
  8. You should be finished adding hair before you reach your shoulder
  9. When you’re out of hair to add, twist both sections counter clockwise until you reach the bottom
  10. Twist the sections together clockwise
  11. Secure end with an elastic
  12. Gently pull on the twists to add volume
