For twisted styles, rope braids and folded twists are interchangeable. So interchangeable, in fact, that I have them as the same category. If one is easier for you or works better, go ahead and switch techniques for styles that you may want to try. During Emma week, I will use both, but the method doesn’t matter as much as the finished look. Same destination, different ways to get there. Here’s a quick comparison-contrast of the two techniques.
- No “tassel”
- Best for longer, thinner hair
- Has a “tassel”
- Better for thicker, shorter hair
Personally, I prefer to wear a folded twist if I want to wear my hair “down” and ropes for updos. Which method do you prefer?
P.S. Emma week starts on Monday!
