The Waterfall Braid is Actually Quite Simple

My first attempt at the waterfall braid

I was recommended to look up about the waterfall braid. My youngest likes her hair braided and often went to school with her hair in braids. Her teacher had told me of the waterfall braid and told me to look it up and we may like it. So I went home and Googled "Waterfall braid" and found a very easy to follow video on YouTube. I didn't have a lot of time to try it in the morning since they are hard to get ready quick enough to allow time for something new! At the bus stop, I had enough time to try it out quickly on my oldest. It will take a little practice to get it perfect, but it was actually pretty simple.

She didn't really like the fact that I did 2 braids and ended it in a V, but I am going to practice it and try it as one braid that wraps around the back of the head.  That is what she said she was hoping for.  Now I have to figure out how I will end it off if we wrap it around the back of the head.  She did like the waterfall braid, just not the way I did it here.  But of course when I took the picture and showed it to her, she liked it.  Once she got home from school she told me she took it out because she didn't like the V.

Practice will make perfect :) We will have plenty of time over the summer to practice and by next school year, maybe I will be fast enough to do it for both the girls before school!

This is the video that I watched to learn it.  She is doing the waterfall braid on her own hair (I will have to attempt this) and doing a great job! She shows you exactly how easy it is and it looks quite nice too.  The waterfall braid is the perfect cute hairstyle for little girls and also adults.
