Waterfall Bun | Updo

Waterfall Bun | Cute Girls Hairstyles

Everyone loves the Waterfall Braid! And a great bun is in the love column as well.  Put them together and you get a little magic!  Combo hairstyles can be so much fun.

I love that this keeps the hair off my shoulders during the summer heat.  Styling tools are really not good for the hair so the more hairstyles I can do without adding heat is such a bonus!

Waterfall Bun | Updo

To see your own photo recreations of this style featured in our app, feel free to tag your photos on IG with: #CGHWaterfallBun

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, a few small hair elastics, bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes

Skill Level: Medium


Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1. Start by taking a small section at your part line.  Divide into 3 pieces. Begin a waterfall braid.  Continue to add in new hair until you reach your ear.  (See video for further waterfall tutorial)
  2. When you reach your ear you will stop adding hair and braid your three strands all the way down.
  3. Secure your first braid with a clear elastic.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 on the opposite side.
  5. Next take all of your hair except the two braids and pull it up into a high messy bun.
  6. Pull and loosen your waterfall pieces so they are not tight to the head.
  7. Now take your first braid and wrap it around the back and up under the bun.  Secure with a bobby pin.
  8. Repeat previous step with braid number 2.  Finish with hairspray if desired.
