Do The Rope Braid!


Labor Day is right around the corner, and if you’re on the hunt for the perfect ‘do for your final summer blow-out picnic, we’ve got the perfect profile for you long-haired ladies. Pureology Artist Sandra Joseph shares how to create the Twisted Rope Braid, a cool and hip look anyone can do and wear (even if you’re not Nina Dobrev, pictured below in her braid!).

1. Prep damp locks with gel (try Pureology Smooth Perfection Shaping Control Gel) and blow-dry with a medium round brush.

2. Gather length to one side and divide into two section (it’s okay to let some pieces fall around the face!). Apply Pureology Colour Stylist Anti Breakage Twist for added texture and definition.

3. With a section of hair in each hand, twist each to the right until all the hair is twisted, creating two strands of twisted hair. Cross the right strand over the left and continue until there’s only a couple of inches left at the bottom; tease the ends and secure with a covered elastic band (the teasing helps the braid stay twisted). Mist with hairspray to hold.

BONUS TIP! For an evening look, simple wrap the rope braid into a bun and secure with bobby pins.
