How-To | How To Do A Waterfall Braid
  • Step 1: Prep hair by curling with an iron if you want the option of soft curls. Then, leave the front pieces out (1/2 inch to an inch in front on each side).

  • Step 2: Begin braiding on your right side. For the first section, split into three (like a normal braid). Cross the right side over the middle and then cross the left section in, but instead of threading the left through, just drop it down so it "waterfalls."

  • Step 3: For the next piece, add in your left section and your center section and then drop out your right section (essentially like French braiding, but leaving a strand to fall each time).

  • Step 5: Repeat on the opposite side and secure both ends by criss-crossing bobby pins together at the back of the head.
