Double Waterfall Braid | Cute Hairstyles

I promise to keep bringing you updated Waterfall Braid hairstyles from time to time, since this braid is so popular.

This tutorial incorporates a very beautiful double-version of the braid…

To just prep the style, I had her hair in simple braids the day before.  Taking them out left a very subtle curl with waves that really accented well the waterfall braids.  {This style will look just as cute on straight hair, but I wanted those of you with curly hair to see that the Waterfall Braid looks great on you, too!}

I started by joining two waterfall braids from the front going backward, and secured them together with one clear hair elastic. {If you do not know how to Waterfall Braid, please see the links below the video.} 

Now, for the lower waterfall braids I repeated the exact same process… however the hair I pick up from the top is actually a cascaded strand from the upper waterfall braid.  I then finished it off into a hair-wrapped ponytail, to hide the elastic.

One of the best parts of this hairstyle is that it can be incorporated in any number of combos.

For example, yesterday I did this on myself {I have shoulder-length hair} and finished it off into a low messy bun.  Yesterday was my shopping day and I must have had 1o comments or so on just my hairstyle, with a few of the girls really wanting to know how to do it. You could also finish it off by separating the remaining hair into messy/loose side braids, or pull it all back up into a fun and curly updo.

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 2 clear elastic bands, hairspray and accesory {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 10-15 minutes

Skill Level: Hard

  1. I love this hairdo but I cannot figure out how to do it on myself. I can only doxit on my friends and family. Anyways you should do a video on a double waterfall twist.

  2. I love the waterfall braid, but find it a bit hard to do, so I did your waterfall twist. I did about five twists and then brought it into a side pony-tail. All my friends now ask me to do their hair! You are my saviour!!!! 🙂

  3. I did this but made the second braid into and ordinary French braid. It looked like a very cool woven style and brushed out into incredible curls the next day

  4. So glad I found you! I can’t make a decent french braid but your styles are simple and clear enough that my daughter and I just spent a fun time on your YouTube channel trying out all the different braids. She’s sporting the Slide-Up braid and is begging for a Waterfall braid for church tomorrow. Thank you!
    (And my daughter totally squealed when she saw your girl’s CTR ring in one of the videos. Looks just like hers.)

  5. I LOVE this hairstyle!!!!! You did such a GREAT job on it. You do all your hairstyles so perfectly and clean. How do you get all your hairstyles to look SO good? I LOVE all your hairstyles. I am definately going to try this!

  6. Thank you! I love styles that leave part of the hair down for my daughter. Love the waterfall braids. 🙂 I do find that hair wants to pop out of them – but I feel like with the double it may stay in better. Can’t wait to try it!
