I absolutely love braiding my hair, and when I get bored, I love discovering new types of braids to try!!
The Waterfall braid is so pretty and modern!
It’s a fresh take on a normal braid. Beautylish.com teaches you how!
STEP 1 Section & French Braid
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
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 fell—that’s your new right strand. Braid it into your style as usual and repeat this process—French 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
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
Braid the remaining piece of hair left from your cascade into a fishtail braid. Not sure how to create this mermaid-inspired style? It’s easy with this helpful fishtail braid tutorial. Secure the braid with a thin hair tie.
