In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the steps to create Boho Half-Up Rope Braid and share tips on how to optimize this style using high-quality tape in hair extensions from BigG Hair.
- Step 1
Start with dry hair and create a center part. Apply a thermal protectant throughout the hair, including BigG’s Tape-In Extensions. These extensions come in various shades for added fullness, length, and contrast. Take 1-inch sections of hair and wrap them diagonally around a 1-inch barrel curling iron, slightly twisting the hair as you wrap it.
Note: To achieve the desired foundation, used 16″ to 20″ Tape-In Extensions in three shades: #613 (Sunset Blonde), #4Q (Caramel Brown), and #9C (Golden Brown).
- Step 2
Create effortless waves by alternating the directions of the curls in the back. This technique adds texture and dimension to the finished look.
- Step 3
Frame the face by angling the waves away from it. Allow the curls to cool and set.
- Step 4
Section out a small horseshoe-shaped section on the top of the head, leaving extra hair to frame the face. Working in sections, gently backcomb the hair from the front to the back. For added texture and support, you can use volumizing powder.
- Step 5
Lightly brush over the top of the backcombed section and pin it toward the back, twisting the hair in the direction of the right side. Secure it in place with bobby pins.
- Step 6
Take a 2-inch wide section of hair from the left side of the backcombed area. Divide the section into two equal parts. Wrap the bottom section loosely over the top section. Switch hands and continue wrapping the bottom section over the top until you reach the back of the head, gently pulling out the hair as you go to create a loose rope braid.
- Step 7
Secure the rope braid with bobby pins, ensuring it stays in place. Repeat this technique on the other side of the head.
- Step 8
Finish the look by applying a texturizing hairspray to add hold and texture to the waves and braids.
By offering Boho Half-Up Rope Braid as a stylish option in your salon, you can attract clients looking for effortless yet fashionable hairstyles.
