    To start, part your hair in your normal parting and be sure to brush out any tangles. If you want to add waves to your hair it’s best to do this before you start with the waterfall plait. Then take a section from the front of your hair, right on your parting and split it into 3. Take the highest of your 3 sections and place it over the middle section, then take the bottom one and place over the middle section just as if you were doing a normal plait/braid. Angle your hands so that your hair is moving towards the back of your head and not down the side of your face for the next step. Before you move your top section over to the middle once again, you will need to pick up a little more hair from right beside the section, combine this with that section and fold over the middle section. Now instead of folding the bottom section over the middle you should drop that hair and pick up the section of hair that is hanging loose next to this section. As you fold this over the middle section you will see the section you dropped is now acting like a waterfall. You should continue with steps 3 and 4 until you have reached the point at which you want to stop! Some people start their waterfall braids on one side and continue all the way around and end with a normal braid/plait, others do one on each side and join them together and many just have them on the one side and secure them with a pretty accessory. Whichever look you choose you’ll be sure to attract a lot of attention with this cute waterfall plait.

    The Waterfall Braid

    Waterfall Braid

    I will be trying this.


    In a regular braid there are 3 strands. For this look, all you do is braid one of those strands beforehand and loosen it up with your fingers, then braid as usual. This creates extra texture breaks up the mundane pattern of a regular braid.

    love this!

    Split and braid your hair into two sections and tie with a rubberband. Twist the braid away from your face and then twist the flat iron onto your hair in the same direction your hair is twisted. Do not touch rubberband or else you will get that weird crease. Repeat this process twice! After hair is cooled, then take them out and run your fingers through the braid. Saw this on Rachel Ray Show. It gives you nice beachy waves!

    This collection of styles from Hair Romance is enough to make me want to grow my hair out again... almost! When I was a kid, I grew my hair out so I could braid it; now that braids are coming back in style, I'm tempted again :)
