The rope braid is my all-time favorite braid. With only two strands, rope braiding fast and easy. The buns and styles than can be produced with a rope look really cool, too, with that “How did she do that?!” quality. Here’s how to do the basic rope braid.
3. Twist that section you just crossed to the middle with about three turns. If you’re not sure what to do with your hands, hold the section that you aren’t twisting with your thumb, ring and pinky finger. This method leaves your index and middle finger free to hold the section being twisted between turns your you can “re-set” your twisting hand. Clear as mud?
*Note* Most instructions say to twist before you cross, but I find this way easier. Do what is easier for you.
