Rope Braids and Twisted Ponytail

Rope Braids and Twisted Ponytail from BabesInHairland.com I’ve got to be honest, sometimes coming up with a name for a hairstyle is almost harder than coming up with an actual hairstyle! This is one of those styles that is really simple, but looks so pretty in the end.  Those are my favorites!  You could probably do this with braids instead of twists for a really great look too!

Step 1 – Make 2 rope braids/twists

Feel free to watch our rope twist/braid video if you don’t know how to make them or need to brush up on your skills!

Make a side part on the right side of the head back to the crown, and then down to the left ear.  Divide that section into two different sections, and then proceed to make 2 separate rope braids/twists.  Temporarily secure them at the end with clips.

Step 2 – Make a side ponytail behind the right ear Rope Braids and Twisted Ponytail from BabesInHairland.com

Step 3 – Add rope twists/braids to the ponytail with another elastic Rope Braids and Twisted Ponytail from BabesInHairland.com

Depending on where you started your twists (high or low), when you draw them back to the ponytail, they may lay differently or the front one could cross over the back twist.  Place them however you think looks best. Rope Braids and Twisted Ponytail from BabesInHairland.com

Step 4a- (optional) Wrap the ponytail base with hair

Step 4b – Make a small rope twist/braid on the right side of the ponytail & secure the end Rope Braids and Twisted Ponytail from BabesInHairland.com

Step 5 – Make another rope twist/braid with the remaining ponytail and secure the end Rope Braids and Twisted Ponytail from BabesInHairland.com

Step 6 – Wrap the small rope braid/twist around the thicker one

I didn’t combine these two twists as if I was making another rope braid, I simply wrapped it gently around the thicker rope braid.  You could always twist them like a rope twist which would create a Hawser braid.  Check our Hawser braid/twist video to see what they look like.     Rope Braids and Twisted Ponytail from BabesInHairland.com

FINISHED!

If you opted not to wrap the base of the ponytail with hair for Step 4a, top the ponytail off with a fun accessory.  This cute flower is from Gimme Clips.

      So glad you like this one. Despite it being one I did on a “whim” it turned out pretty good in the end I think!
