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!

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

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.
