Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, hair elastics, bobby pins, and hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level: Hard

 

Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1. Part your hair to one side.
  2. Pick up a small section of hair on the strong side of the part.
  3. Divide into 4 pieces.  We will label them 1-4.  The highest strand (closest to the top of the head) will be number 1, and then go down 2,3,4.
  4. Cross strand 1 under strand 2 and over strand 3.
  5. Now take strand 4 over strand 3 and under strand 2.
  6. Now we start again, label the strands 1-4.  #1 is the highest strand.  Only this time pick up a new section of hair at the top and add to strand 1 before you start step 4.
  7. Then you pick up a small piece of hair and add to #4 and repeat step 5.
  8. Start over again and label pieces 1-4.  #1 is the highest strand.  Repeat step 6.
  9. This time, before you start with strand 4….. drop strand 4, pick up a new piece to replace strand 4.  Cross strand 4 over strand 3 and under strand 2.
  10. Repeat steps 8 & 9 until you reach the other side of your head.  Stop your water fall and do a couple of 3 strand braid stitches to secure your braid.
  11. Secure your braid as close to the head as possible with a small elastic.
  12. Go back and pancake the edges of your braid to create more volume.
  13. Pick up a small section of hair from the front of the other side of the head (opposite of where you started your braid), twist backward and lay over your elastic.  Secure with a bobby pin.
