5 Step Waterfall Braid Tutorial

When it comes to eye-catching trends for long hair, the waterfall braid is one of the styles at the top of our list.Waterfall braid tutorial, Scizzors, Shrewsbury, Massachusetts However, it may also appear to be one of the more complicated hairstyles. Luckily, looks can be deceiving. A waterfall braid is actually easy to achieve, especially if you already know how to French braid. There is really only one key difference between the French braid and the waterfall braid.

With this waterfall braid tutorial, a few elastics, and several bobby bins, you can master this new style with just five easy steps.

Waterfall braid tutorial: Step 1

Start a waterfall braid by gathering about an inch or two of hair at the top of the right side of the head. Divide this part of your hair into three equal amounts.

At this point, you will begin French braiding by crossing over the left piece of hair with the middle one and then the right piece over the left. Don’t forget to add more hair to the overlapping sections as you go.

Continue braiding normally until you are ready to begin the waterfall effect create by pieces of hair hanging down from the braid. Typically, an ideal spot to begin this effect is after about three inches of braiding. At this point, simply drop the hair that crosses over the top section. Pick up a new piece of hair near the section you just dropped and add it to the braid.

Continue this process of dropping every section of the hair that crosses over the top and picking up new strands of hair to braid in its place. Once the braid is complete, tie it with an elastic band so that it doesn’t fall apart. Clear elastics are recommended because they will make the braid look neater.

Now just repeat steps one, two, and three again on the left side to get that same effect on the other side. (Or you can skip this step to achieve the trendy, one-braid waterfall.)

Waterfall braid tutorial: Step 5

Once you have two braids, connect them together at the crown of your head by pinning one braid under the other. Keep the braids in place with more bobby-pins. Now you’re ready to show off your hair to all of your friends.

Waterfall braids are a fun new spin to the classic braid look and it’s a relief to know that they are not as complicated as they look. Now that you have these five steps, you may begin creating your own waterfall braid.
