First I just wanted to remind everyone not to forget to go enter the fabulous giveaway we’re hosting for your chance to win $25 to spend at Stylish Mode on some beautiful headbands. Go check it out HERE!
I realized it’d been ages since I did a Hawser braid and since you make them using rope/twist braids I thought it’d be fun to try it out using my new & fun variation the uneven rope/twist braid.
You really only need to know how to do those 2 things, so if you don’t, or need a refresher, go HERE to watch my video on how to make a Hawser braid, and HERE to watch my video on the uneven rope/twist braid. If you are real new to all this and need help with just a basic rope/twisted braid, you can watch THIS video.
Part out a square or rectangular piece of hair on top of the head. I did mine off set to the right a bit because I wanted her ponytail in back not dead center either.
Make an uneven rope/twist braid & secure it temporarily with a clip once you get to the end.
Take the remaining hair and pull it back into a ponytail. Add your rope braid. I secured it with a 2nd small rubber band rather than including it into my main ponytail.
Divide the ponytail into 2 sections.
Make 2 uneven rope/twist braids. Be sure to make the left strand be the small one for each twist.
Not sure what I did, but my left one went a bit wonky! Secure both twists with little rubber bands at the ends. Be sure you twist both these uneven twist braids the same direction or your Hawser braid won’t work.
Then twist them into a Hawser braid. You should just simply be able to twist them the opposite direction of how you made your twist braids & have this work. Twist it nice & tight so it stays tight & cool looking! Secure the ends together with another rubber band. I didn’t bother pulling the other 2 out, just for added security! 🙂 Looks pretty cool, huh?!
We added one of our favorite big white bows from All Things Ribbon to cover up where things join together and curled the end of the braid & that was it. A really unique but awesome looking ‘do!
Perfect do to keep her hair up off her neck since it’s finally starting to get warm here. If you try this one out, we’d love it if you’d share with us on our Facebook Page! And don’t forget to go enter our giveaway!
