rope braids [Jun. 2nd, 2008|11:37 pm]
Hair Braiding Community


Hi again! I figured I may as well post my hair from a wedding I went to last weekend. There was swing dancing so I had to have my hair up and secure so that I didn't accidentally (or not-so-accidentally, haha) whack anybody with it.

It's sort of a variation on a hairstyle that I do kind of often. First I did a rope braid down either side, then gathered all my hair at the nape of my neck into ponytail. I split it in half and put each half into a rope going in opposite directions (the right rope twists to the right and the left rope twists to the left). Then I took the left rope and wrapped it around the other in a bun going anti-clockwise and pinned it down, and wrapped the remaining rope clockwise and pinned it down. Pretty simple and straightforward. Yay. Wish I had a better picture of it.

Oh actually here's a picture of it (without the side ropes) from last November. :-)

Wow, that's lovely and looks very useful. How fast can you do this? Did it stay up all night?

It took me about fifteen minutes.

Yeah, it held really well. It can hold pretty much for forever. When I do it for a Scottish country dance it holds up as well (which involves a lot of jumping up and down).
