Today we have not 1 but 3 great hairstyles to show using a Waterfall Braid. Abby loves this option for several reasons. First, it’s Gorgeous! Second, it’s great to cover crazy flyaways. Last, it looks way more complicated than it is.Option #1- Cascade Waterfall
This is such a beautiful and unique look. We love this as an option to tame crazy flyaway hair, growing out bangs, or simply because you want to keep your hair off your face.Option #2- Cascade Waterfall + Messy Bun
Adding the Messy Bun is pretty versatile. It works for day, night, home or office. This build-able hair option is perfect for any age and is sure to draw the compliments from friends and family!Option #3- Cascade Waterfall + Side Braid
Time Requirement: 5-10 minutes
Skill Level: Medium
- Start by parting your hair to the preferred side.
- On the heavy side of the part, pick up a small triangle section of hair. Split the section into 3 small pieces and begin a regular waterfall braid.
- Braid down until you have dropped 4 stitches. (see video for further details)
- When you add hair into the 5th stitch you will be adding the pieces you dropped in the first 4 stitches. (Shown in video)
- When you run out of the dropped sections to add, finish with a regular 3 strand braid down and secure with an elastic.
- Tug and loosen your braid to get the beautiful cascade effect.
- Abby added loose curls to remainder of hair for this first look. Add hairspray if desired.
- Option #2– Adding a Messy Bun.
- Pull all of your hair over to the side of your braid. Using a regular elastic, pull the hair thru once. Leave the ends hanging out just a little, twist the elastic and pull the hair thru one more time. (shown in video)
- Fluff your messy bun and pin where needed.
- I like to also pull out a few whispies around my face on the opposite side of the braid. Add hairspray if desired.
- Option #3– Adding a Side Braid.
- Pull all of your hair to the braid side.
- Take a small piece of hair close to your neck and another small piece of hair on the outside of the hair. Essentially you are creating a topsy tail. (shown in video)
- Bring those two pieces to the front and secure with a little elastic. Now, flip that little section up and under.
- Repeat steps 14-15 all the way down until you run out of hair.
- You will want to tug and loosen here and there to get a nice fluffy look.
- Finish with a little hairspray if desired.
