The Waterfall twist braid steps!

The Waterfall Braid steps!
First part your hair â€¦ if you want to add waves itâ€™s best to do this before you start with the waterfall braid. Take a section from the front of your hair, right on your parting and split it into 3.
Take the highest of your 3 sections and place it over the middle section, then take the bottom section and place it over the middle section, Â just as if you were doing a normal plait/braid. Angle your hands so that your hair is moving towards the back of your head and not down the side of your face for the next step.
Pick up a little more hair from right beside the top section before you move your top section over to the middle once again, Â you will need to combine the extra hair with the top section and fold over the middle section.
Now instead of folding the bottom section over the middle you should drop that hair and pick up the section of hair that is hanging loose next to this section. As you fold this over the middle section you will see the section you dropped is now acting like a waterfall.
Continue with steps 3 and 4 until you have reached the point at which you want to stop!

- Â After youâ€™ve French braided the left section of hair (now in the center) drop the right strands and let them fall along the side of your head.
- Pick up a new piece of hair in the dropped sectionâ€™s place, as well as a new piece on the left side like a traditional French braid, and braid the three sections again, dropping the right portion after youâ€™ve completed the braid.
- Continue this process, wrapping the waterfall braid toward the back of your head as you go.
- Â Once youâ€™ve passed the back of your head with the waterfall braid, end with a traditional braid and secure the end with an elastic.
