Take a section from the low crown to the tip of your ear on each side to create triangle sections and clip them back. Make a low pony at the nape of the neck. Divide it into two sections and create a ropebraid by taking the section to the right, twisting it to the right, and taking it over to the left side. Repeat until you reach about 1 in (2.5 cm) from the ends. Secure with a hair elastic.
Twist the ropebraid up around the hair elastic. Bobby pin in place.
Drop out the top sections and part on one side. Split the hair in half and make a Dutch braid.
When you reach halfway across your head, do a three-strand braid to the end. Repeat on the other side. Secure the ends with a hair elastic.
Wrap the braided sections across one another and pin into place.
