Here's how you do it....
Step 1: Pull front section of hair back and rope braid. Secure at the end with hair band.
Step 2: Wrap the rope braid into a bun, securing with hairpins as you wrap. If you don't secure with hairpins as you go, the bun won't stay well, and will eventually fall. I have had this happen before!
Step 3: Rope braid the remaining hair and secure with a hair band.
Step 4: Take the rope braid and wrap it around the bun. You may want to twist the braid at the base a bit before wrapping it around so there isn't a lump as you wrap. Secure with hairpins.
