Waterfall Braid, Scissor Twist Technique

A Waterfall Braid, With A Twist.... Or Two.  ;)
Scissor Twist Waterfall Braid Tutorial

This week, our hair tutorial (the "scissor twist waterfall braid") is a variation of a lovely braid we first saw on a Spanish YouTube channel ("ViriYueMoon") called the "waterfall scissor braid."

Our Princess has worn the original scissor braid several times and loves it! In the original version of this braid, regular strands of hair are used in the plaiting. We wondered what this unique braid would look like if we added some "twists" or rope braids in place of the regular strands, and we both ended up loving the outcome of this variation, so we wanted to share our results.

This tie back hairstyle has a similar look to a waterfall twist braid (or more accurately... a double waterfall twist braid with rope braided strands.) But as you can see in our video tutorial (below) this technique is quite different.

As shown towards the end of our video, you can choose to spread these twists apart to create a ladder braid type of effect (which is what we chose for our photographs here.). Or, keep the twists closer together for a completely different look.  Also, we chose rope braids for our individual strands, but you can really use any type of braid you want.

We wanted to include a front view of this hairstyle.  ;)  The Princess doesn't have bangs, but we left some hair out of the braids around her face for a soft and feminine look.  After the braiding was complete, we curled her hair using a curling wand.

Supplies Needed:
  • Several "temporary" hair ties or clips to help hold the braids while you are working.
  • 1 clear hair elastic (or an elastic which matches the color of hair you are working with.)
  • Gel, pomade, finishing hairspray (optional.)
  • Curling Iron, Wand, or similar (if you choose to add curls.)
FYI: The curling wand we used to create these curls was our 19mm from NuMe.

Cascading Bows Ponytail Hairstyle

A cute and girly hairstyle.

This tutorial features bows made from hair, cascading down a ponytail.

The basic idea for our video today is based off of some cute hair bows that we first saw on an Instagram account called "kares84." If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you may remember seeing the photo we are referring to (as we shared it a few weeks ago on our pages.) In the original hairstyle, the bows were utilized in a "French bubble braid."  We decided to try them out cascading down a regular ponytail for our video today.

Of course, you can add as many bows as you want to your style (some of this will depend on the length of hair you are working with.)  As shown in our tutorial below, you can stop at just one (which our princess has named the "eyeglasses ponytail") or you can add several bows down the length of your ponytail.  Also, the strand of hair in the middle of the bow is optional and can be left out or added in, for two different looks.

As shown below... the "eyeglasses ponytail." ;)  This is The Princess's favorite variation of this style!

I think incorporating these bows would make such a cute hairstyle for a flower girl or other special occasion. And really, they are not time consuming to create, so I could see this working as a hairstyle for school mornings... when you want something more than just a standard ponytail.

Supplies needed to create this look:
  • 1 elastic for the top of the ponytail, as well as 1 small elastic for each bow.  (Depending on how you finish each bow, you may need one more elastic to secure the end.)
  • Gel, pomade, finishing hairspray (optional)
