I've gotten a few requests for the popular waterfall braid, but I thought this version would be much easier to do (I can do a tutorial as well for the original waterfall braid if desired). Once you get the concept, it takes only 5 minutes to do. It looks great on straight, curly, or wavy hair. Here's how to:
T O O L S:
1 or 2 bobby pins
M E T H O D:
Pick a side to start working on. I started on the right side.
Take a section above your ear and divide it in half.
Put that piece in the middle of your two pieces of hair. Those two pieces will sort of clamp it down.(aka the last piece you grabbed aka the same one that you just clamped down) and twist your original two pieces together.
Clamp, drop, and twist, just like you did earlier.
Repeat until you get to the other side of your head.
Pin into place. You're done!
T I P S:
- The size of the hair you grab, clamp, and drop doesn't matter, but I would keep it consistent. I used smaller pieces there.
- To get more of the falling effect, go a little bit further down the hair shaft with each piece you grab, instead of grabbing across.
- Try practicing this on someone else's hair first if you can't get the hang of it.
- I would also try using much smaller pieces/section just to practice. I know doing a mini fishtail braid helped me when I was learning how to fishtail.
If you've a request for a celeb hairstyle, let me know, below.
