DIY Waterfall Braid

Hey guys! So, I love braids and people have been asking me how to do a waterfall braid so I decided to share how to do the trendy waterfall braid!

Step 1 Section & French Braid
(refer to 2nd pic) This style works best on straight or loose waves. Brush out all the knots with a wide tooth comb. Part your hair how you normally would, and begin your braid on the right side of your part. Grab the top section and divide into three strands.

Braid your strands regularly three times, beginning from the right strand. When you get to the left strand (the part closest to the middle of the scalp), add more hair to it like a French braid and fold that strand to the center.

STEP 2 Drop The Strand
(3rd and 4th pic) This is where it gets tricky. After you`ve French braided your left strand (now center), drop the right strand and let it fall down. Pick up another small section of hair next to where your original strand fellthat`s your new right strand. Braid it into your style as usual and repeat this processFrench braid the left strand, drop the right strand, and pick up an adjacent new piece. Gradually cascade the style towards the middle of your head.

STEP 3 Pin & Secure
(5th pic) Once you`ve reached a comfortable point to stop your braid, secure it to your scalp with bobby pins. You don`t have to pin up your hair perfectly in this section since you`ll cover up the pins with a hair accessory later.

STEP 4 Fishtail Accent
(6th pic) Braid the remaining piece of hair left from your cascade into a fishtail braid. If you want a post about DIY Fishtail braids, just comment and I`ll make one. Fishtails are also very popular now.

STEP 5 Add Accessories
(7th pic) Add a cute bow or flower to hide your bobby pins and give this look some extra hair flair. Secure your barrette tightly to your scalp and braid for a firm hold.

AND VIOLA! You have a waterfall braid~
