This hairstyle is a continuation of the rope braid I've been playing with for the past few weeks. This time it's similar to a french braid. For a true french twist you don't have to twist each section before you cross them, but I find the twists help add dimension to the look.
-take a small section of hair from the top of your head and split it into two sections
-twist each section to the right, then loop the right side over the left
-add small pieces of hair to both sections on either side of your head
-twist them to the right again and loop the right over the left
-continue adding small amounts of hair before looping/crossing them
-at the base of your head add the rest of your remaining hair and create a rope braid
