Back 14 of 22 Try This Different (and Easier) Take on the Braid Heard of a rope braid? It's one of the easiest hairstyles to pull off, and, after seeing how Fendi showcased them on the Fall 2012 runway, we decided to create our own interpretation for an everyday, wearable look. On Kirbie: H&M Comments 1365598 4 years Kirbie can you tell us what nail polish you're wearing? I love that it's kind of a "bold" nude. :) futuralon 4 years Kirbie girl I think you did this wrong. You are twisting each of your two strands clockwise (to the right), so when you "braid" those two twisted strands together, to look like a rope you have to braid them a certain way in this case right strand over left. Test it out right over left vs. left over right. Only one way looks like a rope, the other way looks like one big twist instead. I do rope braids all the time but if it's been a while since , I'll start doing it wrong and after a few braid motions it's obvious. Give it a try each way. hth. Jaime-Richards 4 years I have short hair so braids don't always work for me, but I feel like the rope braid is a great alternative. Thanks for this! Amy3145567 4 years I love how that looks!
