How to Do: Rope Braids

Rope braids are one of my favorite hairstyles to do because they’re incredibly easy but look really complicated. All you need is a good grip and some small hair elastics. Let’s get going.

How to Do: Rope Braids

Decide what kind of braids you want. This style works as a single side braid, two braids, or even a small braid that you can pin on the top of your head like a head band. Gather the hair you want for a single braid and separate it into two sections. Twist both of those sections in the same direction. I usually twist them outward but inward works too.

Then, twist those two sections together in the opposite direction. So if you twisted them outward individually, twist them inward together.

Secure with a small elastic. Make sure it’s tight or the braid will fall out.
