How to Create the French Rope Braid Updo
Nourish your hair
A beautiful French rope braid updo starts with healthy hair. Renew your hair’s strength with TRESemmé Total Salon Repair Shampoo and TRESemmé Total Salon Repair Conditioner. They also help get rid of signs of damage, so your hair is ready for any hairstyle you want.
Divide into sections
The French rope braid secret: divide your hair into sections so that the twisting will be a lot easier. Do this by taking one section of your hair from one side, then dividing it into two smaller sections.
Twist all together
Now, the twisting starts. As you twist your hair together, the sections come in play by adding more hair as you go along the way. Do this until you reach the nape of your neck.
Bun it up
After all the twisting, make the final one by twisting your hair into a bun. Secure it with bobby pins spritzed with TONI&GUY Body Amplify Creation Hairsray. Use as many pins as you need so you’re sure your bun is all secured.
Strike a smile
All done! Now wear a charming pair of earrings and your pretty smile to seal your French rope braid updo look.
That was easy, right? Now you’re all ready to go out and mingle. With the French rope braid updo, you’ll be looking your best as you greet everyone.
