Trend: The Rope Braid

WE’VE all been there: you’ve just finished a crazy day of work, you’re off to go meet your friends for coffee or out to meet a date, and you’ve got 10 minutes to fix yourself up. This simple braid can be done in minutes with a number of different hair lengths. Plus, if you find braiding your own hair difficult, this is a much easier option. As a bonus, you can look just like Gigi Hadid with her effortless ponytail.

Step 1

Simply begin by taking two strands of the front of your hair right by your face. That’s right – only two strands. We told you it would be easy!

Step 2

Pull the strand closest to your face over the other strand. Then, add more hair to the newest strand that is closest to your face, and pull it over the other strand.

Step 3

Repeat this until you’ve added all the hair next to your face into the braid. You can pin it back with a few bobby pins and let the rest of your hair cover them up!

Step 4

The braid itself will take just a few moments depending on the length of your hair, and it’s a classy looking way to keep your hair out of your face for an evening out.
