A step-by-step guide on how to do a waterfall braid
Wash your hair.
Prep and curl your hair.
But before you do this, spray your hair with the VO5 Smoothly Does It Heat Protect Spray, as this will help protect your hair from tempertatures up to 230°C.
Then, starting at the front, loosely place a couple inches of your hair into the curling tong and turn it away from your face. Hold for a couple of seconds, then release. Repeat this process with the rest of your hair.
Weave your waterfall braid.
Begin weaving your braid across the back of your crown by crossing the section of hair nearer to the top of your head over the middle section. Then cross the bottom section over the (new) middle section.
Now, these next waterfall braid steps are crucial: pick up a new top section, cross over the middle section and then drop it. After crossing the bottom section over your dropped section, begin the weaving process again, working your way around the crown of your head.
Editor’s tip: To finish this waterfall braid tutorial, complete your ‘do with a spritz of the Toni & Guy Casual Flexible Hold Hairspray. And just like that your waterfall braid with curls is complete!
