A rope braid is different from most braids in that you only need to separate your hair into two sections instead of three. To achieve this look, first pull your hair into a high ponytail, adding hairspray or gel as needed to get a smooth look. Then, separate your hair into two sections. Twist both sections clockwise separately until you are about halfway down. At that point begin to twist them with each other counter clockwise until you reach the bottom of your hair. It sounds complicated, but all you do is twist your hair in opposite directions from each other to achieve this look.
