Spiral Rope Braid
I watched Lilith Moon's amazing tutorial on this spiral twisted braid and tried it myself. Well, either my hair is too long or I just don't have the coordination it takes to braid in a spiral pattern around my own head. So I came up with a faux-version of this hairstyle that I actually really like! Instead of starting the spiral braid in the center back of my head, I started in the upper left-hand corner and braided around the outer edge, leaving the hair in the middle out of my braid to be added in later. When I had finally finished adding all my hair, I finished the rope braid and wrapped the length of the braid around my head, between the French-rope braided sections. I held everything in place with bobby pins, and my hair is still up and in place tonight.
