Waterfall Braid

While at cCm's graduation party, bVc mentioned that she knew how to waterfall braid. I didn't hesitate to ask her to try it out on my hair! I've seen the waterfall braid gain popularity on Tumblr and Pinterest so I was very interested in what it would look like on a "real person".bVc did it so quickly and just did it on one side. I loved it so much that when I went out that night, I kept the braid in!

This woman from Cute Girl Hairstyles explains how to do it best. It's probably easiest to pick up if you learn how to french braid first. The woman also says to secure with a ponytail holder, however, we used a clip and then I changed to bobby pins as soon as I got home... I think bobby pins that match your hair color are the best bet to make it look most natural.

I don't do much to switch up my hair style. I'll change the cut and slight variation on the color every so often, but as for styles, I always part my hair on the side and either straighten it or curl it or wear it in a pony tail/down/headband. This was a fun way to update my look without looking too childish (as I think a lot of braided hairstyles can look.

What do you think? Have you tried the waterfall braid look?
Have a fabulous day!

That is so neat! I just learned how to fishtail braid last week, so I'm just now getting onto the funky braids bandwagon!
