Tutortial: Waterfall Braid

The waterfall style braid is an adorable variation of the average french braid. Once you learn the technique, the options of how you choose to wear it are endless!

The best part about this style is that it’s so versatile regardless of hair length, color, thickness or texture. If you’re already comfortable french braiding your own hair you’ll pick this up quickly. If not, you may have to try it a few times before it looks the way you want. You can change the look depending on how big you choose to make your sections. Have fun and make it your own!


Step 1- Gather hair on one side and start a french braid. If you start the braid close to your hair line, create a regular french braid for the first 1-2 sections of hair you add to the braid. This will make sure that the cascading hair doesn’t fall in your face.

Step 2- Every time you grab a section of hair from the top of your head to add to the braid, let it fall and replace it with a new section of hair. Make sure your new section is below the braid but IN FRONT of the section you let fall (as shown above). You will not re-incorporate the dropped piece into your braid whatsoever! The new section of hair you grab will take its place and create the waterfall effect (as shown below)

Step 3- Continue your braid until you reach the other side of your head

Step 4- Secure with bobby pins and spray with hair spray to hold your braid in place

The final product!
