DIY; Double Waterfall Twist Braid

July 22, 2013

diy waterfall braid 1

After my Daydreamer post I received a thousand (well not quite) requests on a tutorial for the braid.  It is actually really rather simple. And it is much easier to do than a classic waterfall braid as it is a twist waterfall braid. Yet it still looks just as wonderful. I have only done one hair tutorial before, and I don't claim to be an expert on the subject of hair, but here are the simple steps in my Double Waterfall Twist Braid Tutorial so you can try this as well;

-Begin with three sections of hair long enough to go as far as you want the braid to go.
-Do the first step of a normal braid but drop the top piece down through. You will now have two sections.
-Twist the two remaining sections up (so the bottom of the two goes up and the top piece goes down)
-Take another section of hair and drop through. Twist upward again.
-Continue taking new pieces, dropping them through, and twisting up.
(Having trouble? Check this out.)

You can always stop at one, I often do, or you can continue on and make a second waterfall twist braid.

-Take two sections of hair from the front below your first braid.
-Take the first section of hair you dropped through the first braid, and drop it through the second braid.
-Twist your two sections up like you did for the first braid.
-Continue dropping the sections from the first braid through, and twisting.
-When you reach the end remove the bobby pin from the first braid and pin the braid together.
-Creating an X with the pins secures the braids best.

And then you are done! I have even done three waterfall braid before, repeating the process, just using much smaller sections. Hope you liked it!
