How to create a Waterfall Braid (DIY) in 2 Minutes

OK, girls, many of you have expressed that you LOVE our hairstyles, and would like to see some of the more complicated hairstyles done on one’s self.

Perhaps one of the more complex hairstyles is the Waterfall Braid, and so many YouTube viewers have left comments wanting to know how to do this if you do not have anyone to help you with it. Today we wanted to show you how to create a Waterfall Braid on yourself in under two minutes

What I love about this style is that it can be done on short hair (like mine) as well as long (my daughters).

Waterfall Braid Hairstyles Tutorial

I do this hairstyle on myself all the time. It is very possible to do this braid by yourself, although it may take some practice. Don’t be upset if it doesn’t turn out perfectly the first time… it may take a few tries. I decided to film a tutorial to show you exactly how I handle the stranding as well as the falling pieces in this waterfall braid.

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, one hair elastic or 2 bobby pins, hairspray or accessory {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 2-3 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

I plan on posting in the near future more styles like these that you can do on yourself, so keep checking back!  To view the tutorial, simply click below…

Happy Hairdoing!
