So a rope braid, wrapped up going around itself (I think? It's not too easy to see from the second last picture) and secured somehow.
I can't do rope braids.
But I can do Dutch braids. I usually wrap them down around the neck before going up again through.
It's worth a try to see if it looks better or different from going up first and wrapping them around themselves.
Unimpressed Igor is unimpressed.
This was really not cute at all.
I think this would be a super cute style if your hair was just long enough, that the braids can "reach" each other and do the little twist on top before tucking them under themselves.
A lot of length is definitely not good for this one. I had to wrap them around the "base" of the braids before wrapping up again.
Or maybe if you have less volume? It did get very bulky.
Oh well. Was worth a try.
