braid/plait is the latest style to emerge as part of this yearís plait/braid
trend for spring and summer. Many people are confused about how to achieve this
gorgeously girly look so follow our easy step by step guide to create your own
If using your
HeadKandy hair extensions for this look then be sure to fit them before you
start styling. You may find that you will need to wear the side wefts a little
higher on the head than normal to hide the top of the wefts. A side parting can be helpful as you will
have extra hair for coverage!
part your hair in your normal parting and be sure to brush out any tangles. If
you want to add waves to your hair itís best to do this before you start with
the waterfall plait. Then take a section from the front of your hair, right on
your parting and split it into 3.
highest of your 3 sections and place it over the middle section, then take the
bottom one and place over the middle section 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.
move your top section over to the middle once again, you will need to pick up a
little more hair from right beside the section, combine this with that section
and fold over the middle section.
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! Some people start their waterfall braids on one side and continue all
the way around and end with a normal braid/plait, others do one on each side
and join them together and many just have them on the one side and secure them
with a pretty accessory.
look you choose youíll be sure to attract a lot of attention with this cute waterfall
