Rope twist braids

When we were kids, my sister had a Pocahontas doll with a styling attachment that twisted her hair into these lovely plaits. I thought they’d be a good idea for my daughter’s hair so off to youtube.

I did not do the zig zag part thing (HA HA HA, the very thought of attempting that!) Since this was my first time doing this I made a plain one on the side of her head, and then another. Then I decided to try the “gathering up into the twist” on the other side and that wasn’t any harder to do and it makes a sort of crown around her head, taking her hair far away from her face. I heavily wet her hair before starting to keep all the hairs in one place.

The secret is “turn right, twist left”.
