My name is Hasblady Guzman, and I'm here to show you guys the difference between the Senegalese and the rope braid. So the reason to go Senegalese is if you want a more silky smooth sort of a braid. If you want just your plain rope, then you go with kinkier thicker hair which is going to give you a bigger effect on the braid itself. They are both braided like a rope. They are both beautiful. Since one is more understated, one is thicker. Because they are both the same technique I'm just going to explain it once. So I part the hair away so I can hide the piece that I'm adding. I part it in twos, I turn the hair, the two pieces of hair, I start twisting along with the extension hair to the right in the same direction and then I start to twist right over left, right over left and keep it taut and keep it going. If there's hairs that come out, just trim them or hairspray them and then secure it with a rubber band and you could wear one, you could wear five. It's really really fun and when you take your hair down from them it also looks really beautiful and it's just fun. It's a great look and it's easy to do. It's just your choice whether you want it skinny and slender or you want it really thick and showy.
