Easy Twisted Hairstyle For Beginners


Mastering The French Rope Braid Step by Step Guide

Time requirement: 15-20 minutes

Skill level: Medium


Prep your hair: 

Brush your hair through so there are no tangles – If you have really fine hair or healthy hair that is really slippery, then try out a texturizing powder to add some grip to the hair.


Step 1: Take a small section of hair at the front of your head and split the hair into 2 equal sections

Step 2: Twist both sections clockwise so the hair gets twisted

Step 3: Cross the lower strand over the upper strand so they switch places

Step 4: Pick up some new hair on the lower side

Step 5: Twist the new hair and the lower strand together

Step 6: Pick up some new hair on the upper side

Step 7: Twist the new hair and the upper strand together

Step 8: Cross the lower strand over the upper strand so they switch places

Step 9: Repeat steps 4-8 until there is no more hair to add in

Step 10: Braid the rest of the hair like a basic rope braid (steps 1-3) and then you are done!
