How To Guide: Rope Braid

A sleek twisted ponytail, or rope braid, is a great update on a classic style and was a dominant trend on the autumn/ winter 2015 and also spring/ summer 2016 runways so it’s definitely a useful style to master for the coming months! We think it’s also the perfect way to add some glamour to your next night out or big date – follow our Creative Director’s simple step-by-step guide to recreate the look at home…

STEP 1: Work a smoothing lotion like TIGI Bed Head After Party through the lengths and ends of damp hair to help banish frizz before blow drying.

STEP 2: Set your hair into a side parting and gather hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck, keeping the hair tight to the head and secure with a hair tie.

STEP 3: Mist a shine spray like TIGI Bed Head Headrush over the hair before smoothing the length of the ponytail with straighteners (we love the ghd Platinum).

STEP 4: Split the ponytail into two sections and tightly twist each one to the ends.
