I love the updo by Elainehali but cannot work out how to do a rope crown braid. Is there anyone here willing to do an detailed article on it with pictures. Pretty please.

Im sure there is someone. Iv done the rope crown braid on a styling head, and it wasnt that hard, once you know how to do a French rope braid.

PS: I dont have hair, so cant do it from a personal perspective.

I'm not sure I'm good enough at it to do an article, but I attempted this for my summer ball. It didn't come out exactly like it looks in the original article, but I was quite pleased with the results.

I practiced it lots of times- at least 15- before I felt even remotely confident of being able to do it on the day. I found I could only manage it when my hair was quite greasy.

My best tip for this was to section off in advance the bits of hair that I was going to add in for each twist of the crown braid. I used mini jaw clips and sectioned the lower half of my hair into about 20 sections before I started.

Hope this helps :)

I would link to some pictures, but I'm not sure how to, but I've got some in an album :)
