1. Comb the hair smooth & create a side part. Pick up a section from one side of the front hairline.

2. Direct the section to the center back. Select an equal amount of hair from the opposite side and direct it to the center back.

3. Cross the left strand over the right one and hold the two strands in position.

4. Secure the two strands by pinning a bobby pin across the overlap. Position a second bobby pin from the opposite side to ensure a firm hold.

5. Repeat the procedure, picking up, crossing and pinning with two new strands. Position the overlap of the two strands to cover the bobby pins holding the previous overlap.

6. Continue picking up and crossing down the center back until the last section has been picked up from the scalp.

7. Temporarily pin this last crossing to hold it in place. The pins will be removed once the remaining hair is braided.

8. Divide the remaining hair into three equal-size strands. Under braid by crossing each outside strand under the center strand, alternating from left to right.

9. Fasten the ends and remove the bobby pins from the last crossing.

Two-Stranded Rope With French Twist

The classic vertical roll, also known as a French twist, is combined with a two-strand rope in the front for a sophisticated design. To create the rope, two strands are individually twisted and then twisted together. New sections are picked up on either side and combined with the strands as the rope continues.

1. Begin this design by sectioning the front from the back. Here we used a diagonal sectioning line from behind the ear to the crown.

2. Secure the back lengths out of the way and section a triangle at the front hairline. Divide this section into two equal-size strands. Twist both
    strands clockwise close to the base of the strands at the scalp.

3. Holding your right hands palm up, insert your forefinger between the two strands.

4. Turn your hands counterclockwise to position your palm down.

5. Pick up hair from the left side of the two strands and add it to the left-hand strand. Do the same on the right side.

6. Twist both of the enlarged strands clockwise, remembering to twist close to the scalp. With your palm up, insert your forefinger between the two
    twisted strands.

7. Turn your hand palm down to twist the two strands together.

8. Continue down the center of the head until all of the hair from the front has been picked up. Try to pick up equal amounts of hair when you add
    new sections to each strand. It is very important to maintain tension on each strand as you twist it clockwise.

9. Continue the two-strand rope down the length of the free strands. Hold both strands and twist them both at the same time. Your forefinger should
    position itself automatically between the strands. Then turn your hand over so the palm is down.

10. When you reach the ends of the strands, fasten the ends of the rope with a coated band.

11. Release the back hair lengths.

12. Place the rope out of the way and comb the remaining hair to one side, angling it slightly upward. Lay the tail end of a comb down the center
     back. The comb should be angled away from the head.

13. Wrap the free lengths around the tail of the comb. This will help you make a clean fold in the hair.

14. Remove the comb and twist the remaining ends in the same direction. Pull the twist upward and fan the twist to balance the vertical roll.

15. Curve the free ends down in a circle at the crown and pin to secure.

16. To hold the edge of the roll, insert hairpins along the rolled edge.

17. Wrap the free ends of the two-strand rope around the top of the twist and pin the ends to hold it in position.

18. You can add an ornament or hair swatch to balance the design, if you wish. Here a four-strand braided hair swatch is wrapped around the rope to
      increase the rope’s size and texture.
