Before you begin, you need to start off this braid with tangle free hair. Add a small amount of your favourite leave-in conditioner on the ends and lengths of your hair. Brush through your hair to eliminate any knots.
Step 1: Gather the crown section at the back for your head and hold it with your hand.
Step 2: Like with the traditional rope braid, you will only need two equal sections for this braid. So, split this section into two.
Step 3: Wrap the left section over the right to form the rope twist. Make sure you keep the twists tight as you twirl them.
Step 4: Continue twisting the sections and holding the strands tightly so they don’t unravel.
Step 5: After two twists, take another section of hair from the side and incorporate it into the rope braid.
Step 6: Continue twisting this section.
Step 7: Now take another section from the other side and incorporate it into the rope braid.
Step 8: Continue twisting the sections until you run out of hair.
Step 9: When you reach the end of the ponytail, secure your rope braid with clear hair elastic.
Step 10: 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.
