How to do a Chunky Rope Twist Updo | Protective Style with Added Hair

This week I’m wearing my hair in a protective style in order to keep the ends of my hair tucked away.
The goal of these styles are to reduce the amount of time I spend manipulating my hair.

When my hair is in braids or flat twists it requires less styling throughout the week.

This weeks style was achieved by flat twisting all of my hair up toward the crown of my head and securing it. You can secure it in a french braid, bantu knot or any other method as long as it’s not too bulky.

 Then using some synthetic hair similar to the texture of  my hair, I created two chunky twist. Starting from the rear crown of my head I pinned down one end of the twist, swooped across my forehead and pinned the other end at the back of my crown.


I repeated the process for the next layer but instead of pinning the end of the second twist, I pinned it about 3/4 of the way. I used the remaining strands to fill in the very top of this style to cover my hair.
This is style is very easy to maintain and the top can be restyled in so many different ways.
In my next post, I’ll show you how I created a total different style later on in the week.
