The Modified Rope Braid Updo
Gals, this easy summer hairstyle does not require any hair prepping or heat styling! Moreover, it will also survive the heat and stay put all day.
- Pick up some hair close to you parting and divide it into two strands.
- Twist the lower strand (the one closest to your hairline) in the direction towards your face and cross it over the other strand in the direction away from your face. repeat again with what is now the lower strand (twist to the front, cross over to the back).
- Pick up additional hair from the front (hairline) and incorporate to the lower strand. The two sections will merge and form one strand that you will now twist to the front, then cross over to the back.
- Here comes the twist – you will only add in hair from the hairline every other time. So this time, don’t add in new hair, just twist to the front, cross over to the back. This way you’ll only keep adding in hair to one of the strands while the other remains thin. That will give it that interesting effect.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you reach the top of your ear, then stop adding in new hair and just twist the strand around each other a bit further down. Secure with an elastic and repeat on the other side. Pull a little bit on the one strand that is thicker, to accentuate the difference between them even more.
- This is optional, but you can now tease the hair in your crown gently and smooth it out. Now tie both twist in the back of your head. This will form a sort of headband in the back of your head.
- Separate the rest of your hair into five sections or more (depending on hair thickness). Twist each section and tuck the ends over the “headband” hiding them and securing in place with bobby pins.
You can twist and tuck the hair with headband that will depend on you hairs length. Have fun and play around with it. It can be as neat or as messy as you like. Twist the section, then grab on to a thin strand of hair at the ends and pull the rest of the hair towards the roots. You will able to hide the ends easily afterwards.
