Waterfall Braid


Before starting we recommend curling your hair and adding product to tame any fly-aways.

  1. You will begin with a 3 strand braid at the front of your crown as if you were going to begin a French braid.

Waterfall Braid step 1

  1. French braid the hair BUT leave 1 strand down.

Waterfall Braid Step 2

  1. Continue this around the head to make a head band following the curve of the head.

Waterfall Braid step 3

Pro tip: Pay attention to your body and posture. The way you are standing our sitting can all affect the outcome of the braid.

  1. When you reach the other side, do a simple 3 stand braid tucking it under any unbraided hair. Secure with an elastic or back-comb the ends. Loosen the braid.

Waterfall braid step 4

  1. When your braid is secured you can pull out the braid slightly to add fullness and accentuating the head band.
