Today I tried my hand at a spiral rope braid. I actually only French braided the first circle or two, and from that point I pinned the length of my rope braid into the spiral look that you see here. It really did not take me very long at all, because my hair was freshly washed and combed out from the night before. I'm pretty certain it took less than 20 minutes (I always forget to check the clock!) My hair has stayed up all day long, so I guess I used enough bobby pins!
Merry Christmas to all of you! I hope you have a wonderful week full of celebration and joy.
