For a romantic hairstyle that is simple but looks anything but beautiful, then go for a waterfall hair braid. Follow this easy tutorial to do it yourself. First, make sure you have hairpins, elastic bands, hairspray, brush and comb, and texture powder.
1. Add Volume
If you need or want to, you can add tiny clip-in extensions close to the root to make your braid thicker especially at the sides.
2. Section Hair
Make a deep side part before dividing a section of hair on the right side into 3 pieces.
3. Cross Sections
Take the piece closest to the hairline and cross it over the middle piece.
4. Start With The Waterfalls
Take the bottom piece and cross it over the middle piece. Unlike in a French braid when you would cross the hanging piece, you will need to leave it hanging so you have a waterfall effect. Take the top and bottom pieces again and cross them over once.
5. Continue Braiding
Repeat steps 3 and 4 again and again until you have reached the desired length. Take some new hair from above, cross it to the middle and drop it. You will see the waterfall effect taking shape.
6. Elevate The Braid
Finish your braid by twisting the last 2 pieces together and tying it with an elastic. Tuck the end under your hair and use 2 bobby pins in an X shape to keep it in place. Sprinkle some texture powder on the braid and pull it loose slightly to make it look fuller.
7. Set In Place
Keep it in place with hairspray.
Whether you have one or two waterfall braids, this is a look that is elegant and beautiful for any occasion.
