 PREP:
Since my Asian hair is straight and I have a lot of layers, I’m doing this on damp hair with some soft gel on my ends – other wise, it would get a tab “too” messy.  I suggest you do the same.  icon smile EASY HAIRSTYLES: FRENCH ROPE BRAID BUN CHIGNON UPDO ON LONG HAIR

French Rope Braid Bun-Chignon Coiffure

STEP 1:

Starting from the sides, split the hair into 2 even bundles and twist them twice. After the initial 2 twists, start French Rope braiding towards the back.

STEP 2:

Unlike the regular French braid, you can not twist or braid until all bundles (2 in this case) have a piece of hair from each side.

Therefor,  keep the 2 big bundles -  we’ll call them bundle A and B -  immobilized while you gather hair from each sides before  twisting them – once.

Example:

  • grab some piece of hair from the left then give it to bundle A
  • grab some piece of hair from the right and give it to bundle B
  • now that both bundles have a piece of hair, we twist.

You simply repeat this process until all the hair is put up before you tie it with a rubber band at the nape.

STEP 3:

  • Wet the ends again to continue rope braiding until the end.
  • After tying the ends, create a tight bun/chignon and simply secure it with a few bobbi pins.

 BOHO Side Loose Rope Braid:
For the loose braid version of this hair tutorial, simply stop at Step 2, loosen the rope braids and wear it as is. icon smile EASY HAIRSTYLES: FRENCH ROPE BRAID BUN CHIGNON UPDO ON LONG HAIR

If you like tight looking rope braid look, then you’ll need to twist the 2 bundles separately in 1 direction, before connecting them and twisting them together in the opposite.

  Example:  if you had twisted the 2 strands “clockwise”, then you will combine the 2 strands and twist them together “counter clockwise”.
