Two Strand Rope Twists

Two Strand Rope Twists How To:
Step 1: Part as small or big of sections as you would like, we decided to go with medium sized boxes.
Step 2: After you’re done parting a section, pin the rest of the hair back to make it easier to work with, and take half of the hair in one hand and half of the hair in the other hand.
Step 3: You’re going to twist both sections the same direction, and wrap them around each other the opposite direction that you twisted the hair in. For example: The twist on the right side will go clockwise and the twist on the left side will also go clockwise. When you wrap them around each other (do not let go of the twisted sections keep them twisted tightly) you will wrap them counter clockwise.
Step 4: You can put beads or hair clips on the ends for a cute and fashionable flair!
And you’re finished, now go try it.. two strand rope twists are a lot easier than ya think!!
