Head Zopf is not a new braid, but it’s a new combination on Missy Sue! It is created by combining a waterfall and a French braid, similar to this tutorial, but … keeping the two braids at a distance creates a cool effect that looks truly unique! I love to try new techniques with old styles and think that this is a cute braid to wear every day of the week. As soon as you enter the waterfall, you will master this style in no time!

Half Up Ladder Braid Instructions:
- Step 1 / With a part on the right side, take a strand of hair on the heavy side of the part and divide it into three sections.
- Step 2 / Cross the back strand across the middle and then cross the front strand over the middle.
- Step 3 / Next, cross the back strand over the middle and insert a strand of hair into the strand.
- Step 4 / Then split the front strand into two equal halves, one half over the middle strand and the other half over the middle strand.
- Step 5 / Braid the head towards the back of the head, split the bottom strand and cross half to form the waterfall braid.
- Step 6 / Once the braid reaches the back of the head, tie it with a transparent rubber band.
- Step 7 / Make a second braid under the first by picking up a section of hair near the hairline and dividing it into three parts.
- Step 8 / Braid the section in a French braid and bring the waterfall sections into the top half.
- Step 9 / When the braid reaches the back of the head, tie it with another elastic band.
- Step 10 / Insert the braids against the back of the head and remove the elastic bands.
- Step 11 / Take a 2 “section of hair on the right side of the head, over the ear, twist it together and wrap it around your head to hit the braids.
- Step 12 / Attach the section over the braids with a clip.
- Step 13 / Brush the rest of the head to smooth tangles.
- Step 14 / Add some curls to the ends of the head.
