Waterfall braid

Think the waterfall braid is pretty, but too hard to actually do on yourself? LetsMakeitUp’s video tutorial makes it way easier than you might’ve thought. She even shows you two different ways to finish off a waterfall braid. Watch the video to the left for the entire tutorial.

Things to keep in mind: When you pick up the new section of hair from the bottom after you drop each section, keep those pieces the same size for a uniform look. And don’t pull your hair too tightly as you braid. You want to keep the braid nice and loose to get the cascading waterfall effect.
