Waterfall Braid, Triple Braided "Cheat" Hairstyle

Waterfall Braiding, Cheater Style!

This cute and intricate hairstyle is super easy to complete. No french braiding skills required! You may remember awhile back when we posted our waterfall braid video "cheat" showing how to do a waterfall braid, floating braid, or fairytale braid (whatever you call this fun braid) using a topsy tail to pull the hair through the braid (instead of french braiding.) This is a variation of that hairstyle, just taken up a notch.... or 3.
waterfall french braidsThis style would work well with long hair or medium length hair. I think this princess hair style would be great for a renaissance faire (very "Maid Marian.") This may even be a cute style for prom, homecoming or other dance. My daughter thought it looked a little bit like a crown braid when we were done.

Btw, we found the "design weaver" used in this video online here: Scunci - Design Weaver

Here's the video tutorial, enjoy!

The princess and I are both loving boho, hippie type braided styles lately. :)

  6. Another awesome hairstyle... you sure get a lot of use out of that Design Weaver tool. I don't think even Scunci knew you could do so much with it!

  7. I did this style on my daughter yesterday and then braided the bottom portion to keep it all secure - three of her teachers took pictures of it with their camera phones because they loved it so much! :) Also, I was watching a show on HBO called "Game of Thrones" and one of the characters on there wears her hair this way....beautiful!
