Halocho#498 - Braids on Shabbat

It's a Torah prohibition to braid threads or hair on Shabbat. Twisting 2 or more threads together is also forbidden.

One cannot braid hair on Shabbat - nor untie hair that is already braided.

On Shabbat one is allowed to gather loose hair and tie them into a ponytail or hold them in place with a headband.
