Twist Downs

This was super easy!! It's like doing a french braid but twisting instead. You just twist your piece while adding the pieces from the sides to make your way down.
Start at the top with on section, start twisting.

Start adding pieces from the sides to match along the same way of the twist.

Okay - for some reason - this is sideways even though I flipped it. But I don't have time to mess around with it right now so next time I'll make sure it's the right way:) Do both sides & when you get to the end of one, I added an elastic & then pinned it so the twist wouldn't let loose. Do the other side the same & bring them together with an elastic of course taking out the pins from holding it previously.

Again, another flopped picture, but you get the idea. Add a bow to the end & spray to hold & you are finished!!

I love this one and I think I might even be able to do it on my daughters shorter hair.

This looks very similar to a rope braid. Instead of just twisting the hair which the end result is not very smooth, take 2 strands of hair and follow the rule.(1) twist both to the right and (2) cross to the left. (3) if doing it french braid style, only add to the left.
You will have a very neat "rope" style braid. I could send a pic if its more helpful to learn it!
