When it comes to elegant and fashionable hairstyles, there is nothing that can beat the classic and timeless appeal of the twisted braid look. So, this tutorial will show you how to create the twisted rope braid effect in a few simple steps. It is an easy and very cute hairstyle for both everyday and fancy occasions. Now scroll down and see how!
Step 1: For this tutorial you will need a comb, rubber bands and enough bobby pins to make the twist secured in place. Now, follow the simple steps below and you will learn how to recreate this amazing hairstyle! Before you begin, you need to start off this braid with tangle free hair.
Step 2: Gather all your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with a rubber band at the back of your head.
Step 3: If you prefer, you can also do this hairstyle as a side ponytail or low ponytail.
Step 4: Smooth the ponytail with your hands to prevent any loose hairs.
Step 5: Like with the traditional rope braid, you will only need two equal sections for this braid. Split the ponytail into two sections. Twist each one counter clockwise around itself.
Step 6: Twist each of the sections around itself.
Step 7: Wrap the left section over the right to form the rope twist. Make sure you keep the twists tight as you twirl them.
Step 8: Continue twisting the sections and holding the strands tightly so they don’t unravel.
Step 9: When you reach the end of the ponytail, secure your rope braid with clear hair elastic. You can gently stretch the sides to emphasise the shape. If you have bangs, you can either pin them on top or leave them hanging loosely.
