How to Make a Waterfall Braid is a new Back to Basics tutorial.
I’ve introduced some basic braid tutorials like Braid and Fishtail Braid, so I thought it was a good opportunity to release a waterfall tutorial.
Waterfall braids are a beautiful way to wear a braid because most hair is still down and it’s as if your hair becomes your own hair accessory.
I personally like to pair waterfall braids with other braids and have done so in many other tutorials, including the following:
- Waterfall, Dutch, French Braid in Braided Bun
- Double Waterfall Braid and Fishtail Buns
- Double Waterfall Braid and Fishtail Side Braid
- Waterfall and fishtail side netting
- Double Headband Waterfall Braid
** Throwback: The original tutorial for the Waterfall Braid.
Follow these steps for the “How to do a Waterfall Braid” tutorial:
- With a part on the right side, take a hair part on the heavy side of the part.
- Divide this into three sections and cross the back strand over the middle then the front strand over the middle.
- Next, cross the back strand over the middle and bring in a hair section to create a French braid.
- Now cross the front strand over the middle and bring along a hair part as in step 3.
- Next, cross the back strand over the middle and bring in another hair section.
- This time, instead of crossing the front strand across the middle, drop it and pick up a hairline just behind this strand. Cross it in the middle instead of the fallen strand.
- Now cross the back strand and bring the hair as usual.
- Next, repeat step 6 to drop the front strand and insert a spare strand.
- Repeat steps 5 through 8 until the braid reaches the back of the head.
- Braid the three strands into a regular braid and stab it against the head.
- Put the hair over the tip of the pencil to hide it.
- Ready with hair spray and ready!
