If you love braiding your hair, then you should learn how to waterfall braid. This new trend is a back to basics one. Waterfall braids represent a fantastic way to wear a braid, and these braids become accessories for you. Some women may prefer combining waterfalls braids with other types of braids for a more complex and gorgeous look.
You just need to follow the next steps to obtain the result you wanted. Firstly, after dividing your hair, take a section of hair on the heavy side of the part. Next, divide this section into three smaller ones and cross the back strand of hair over the middle and then the front strand over the middle strand. Then, you need to cross the back strand of hair over the middle and add one more section of hair to develop a French braid.
Next, cross the front strand over the middle and add one more section of hair like you did before. Then, cross the back strand of hair over the middle one and add another section of hair. This time, instead of crossing the front strand over the middle one, like you did before, drop it and choose a new section of hair which is directly behind that hair strand. Then, cross it over the middle, replacing the dropped hair strand.
