How to waterfall braid

I love learning new hair styles and trying them out on people. I have been seeing this hair style cropping up everywhere and I think it looks so beautiful! It is actually quite simple to do as well. It would be great for weddings, proms, parties, festivals and just about any event you can think off. It works best on second or third day hair as this gives the hair texture and helps keep the braid in place.

I have not yet mastered it on myself, so I have been doing this hair style on my little sister. 
First brush the hair through, I use a Tangle Teezer as it helps with knots. Then I sprayed it with Tony and Guy sea salt spray to add even more texture. 

Then starting at the temple start with three pieces of hair, then do a normal plait towards you until it is about an inch long ( this depends on how long your hair is, my sister has a lot of hair do if yours is shorter maybe do it a few centimetres long)

Then drop the piece of the far right, and from underneath pick up another strip of hair to replace the one you drop.

Add a small strip of hair to the piece on the far left and then do the plait as normal crossing the sections until the piece on the far left is on the far right. 

Then drop this and repeat the steps.

When you get the the bottom of the hair you can either plait it normally or go all the way across your head. 

I hope these instructions are easy to follow, and that you enjoy this post. 

Lots of love
