If there’s something I love to do with hair more than anything, it’s braid. And today, we’ve got a DIY Hair Tutorial for you so I can teach you how to do one of my favorites: a Waterfall Braid! This is a beautiful style that would look perfect for an engagement session, bridal shower, or even just a date night out with your sweetie.
Step 1: Take a small section of hair where you’d like your braid to start and separate it into three pieces.
Step 2: Take the right piece of hair and cross it over the middle piece of hair.
Step 3: Take the left piece of hair and cross it over the middle piece of hair. (This completes one full weave of a basic 3-strand braid.)
Step 4: Let the left piece of hair fall (you no longer need to hold onto it) and pick up a small piece of hair near the right strand of hair…
Step 5: …and add it to the right strand of hair.
Step 6: Now, take a new piece of hair from the left side. (Do not touch the piece of hair that you let fall, you will not incorporate it back into the braid!) You now have 3 pieces of hair which to start the process over with.
Step 7: Take the right piece of hair and cross it over the middle piece of hair.
Step 8: Take the left piece of hair and cross it over the middle piece of hair. Let go of the left piece of hair and continue from Step 4 – repeating until you have braided as far as you’d like to.

A special note: Typically you will not see scalp after completing this braid. I have done so for this tutorial to help the reader better understand the method of the braid and see where the hair is going. Happy Braiding!
