Watch: Close-Up Knotted Rope Braid

Knotted Rope Braid by Naeemah LaFond

Everyone loves a good hair cheat, and this knotted rope braid by amika Global Artistic Director Naeemah LaFond is the ultimate cheated braid. Here’s what we mean—instead of braiding, the technique requires knotting the hair repeatedly in the same direction. This creates a pattern that gives the illusion of a braid. Watch the video how-to below to see exactly how Naeemah creates the style.

Technique Takeaways:

  • Keep the knots in the same direction—this keeps the knots looking like an actual braid!
  • The braid above is a little more textured. For a sleeker look, use the amika Haute Mess Texture Gloss and braid on damp hair—this creates a super clean, shiny finish.
