How to Create a DIY Waterfall Braid | Cute Girls Hairstyles


This 2-minute tutorial is the most-popular Waterfall Braid tutorial on YouTube! It’s a follow-up to our original tutorial, the first on YouTube, after fans said it was impossible to create on yourself!

This video was filmed back in 2010, before the craze of the Waterfall Braid hit the world, with all its many hair tutorials. We filmed the original tutorial on KamriNoel, but the comment section was ablaze with many viewers saying that this Waterfall braid was IMPOSSIBLE to do as a DIY. I knew this wasn’t true.

So, I had been doing it on myself for about a year now, so I asked Shaun to grab the camera and quickly film me showing how to do this on yourself.

As you can see, if you can get the braid stranding down, it is fairly easy to do on yourself. If you can braid a french braid on your own, you can do this braid!

My little girl Kamri was the one who coined the term “Waterfall Braid”, since the strands look like water falling through the rocks at the top of waterfall.

This plait makes for a perfect base for homecoming, Prom, a wedding, dance, or any other formal or informal occasion!

Where would you wear this beautiful braided hairstyle?
