It seems like a lot of the styles I’m seeing out there these days just keep getting more and more complicated and intricate. While I love those kind of styles, I also love the simple ones that use basic hair “techniques” but turn out awesome too! This is one of those styles.
Step 1 – Make a side part – ours was zig-zag
Step 3 – Make a rope braid
If you don’t know how to do a rope braid, check out our old video here. Twist enough that it will reach around the back of the head. Temporarily secure the rope braid/twist with a claw clip.
Step 4 – Make a 2nd rope braid
Step 5 – Repeat steps 2-4 on the left side of the head
Step 6 – Join the front rope braids/twists toward the left side of the head & secure with an elastic Step 7 – Join the 2nd (the ones above the ear) rope braid/twists in back underneath the first set
Step 8 – Make one big rope braid with remaining hair
Make sure you pull this off to the side below the smaller rope braid/twists. By doing that, hopefully you’ll get some hairs that stray out of the twist because the angle you are pulling it. (More on that in a minute.) Secure the end with an elastic.
Step 9 – Wrap the rope braid
Step 10 – Hide the tail of your rope braid
It’s almost like I made the shape of the letter “P” when I did this. Bring the tail of the rope braid back toward the base of it & tuck it behind & secure with bobby pins as needed. Depending on the length of hair you’re working with will make the look you get vary. Let all the loose hairs stick out if you get those!
