The low ropebraid is simple and sweet and works for daytime and casual occasions. This hairstyle is good for the beginner braider and works best with mid-length to long hair that has few layers. It suits straight hair because you will be able to see the definition in the twists of the braid. It’s great for days when you don’t want to wash your hair; the natural oils will help smooth down any flyaways so you can achieve a tidy ropebraid.
Brush your hair and apply a lightweight shine serum to help smooth any flyaways so that you will see the true definition of the ropebraid. Split the hair in half from your hairline down to the nape of your neck.
Twist the hair on your right side, going to the right.
Go up and over the left section with the twisted right section.
Take the section that is now on the right and twist it a few times to the right. Take this twisted section up and over to the left.
Continue with this pattern of twisting to the right and going up and over to the left until you don’t have any more hair to work with. Secure the ends with a hair elastic.
