It’s Raining in NYC, So We’re Learning How to Waterfall Braid


Whether you are experiencing the massive rainstorm in New York right now or not, we decided to take the time to learn how to do the latest trend in hair; waterfall braids. Whether you do it yourself or have a friend help you out, this hairstyle is quick, easy, and fun to do!

If you already know how to braid, then you basically know how to create a waterfall braid. Start out with a French braid at the beginning of the crown, then as you continue around your head, continue to braid normally. The only catch is instead of using the same three strands of hair the whole way around, drop the left strand and pick up a new one from the bottom.

Watch this video tutorial to get the big picture. Once you master the basic braid, you can do double waterfall braids, or crazy wavy waterfall braids. Glance through the gallery for the more advanced versions and happy braiding!
