A Cute Side Braid Hairstyle
Our tutorial today is showcasing another hairstyle idea featuring the "waterfall scissor braid."
If you did not see our video last week, we did a variation of this scissor braid (using rope braids) which ended up as a pretty "tie back waterfall hairstyle" linked here: Waterfall scissor twist braid.
As mentioned last week, we originally saw this new braid on the wonderful "Viriyuemoon's" Spanish YouTube channel and loved it so much, that we just had to sneak in one more style utilizing the braid this week!
There are so many different styles and variations that could be made using this braid, we had a hard time deciding what we wanted to do for this tutorial. We finally settled on a simple side fishtail with the scissor braid diagonally curving over the top.
I'm predicting the Princess will be wearing this hairstyle to school quite often (since this is fairly quick and stays in place quite nicely.) We noticed that having the hair run through the scissor braid before it is braided into the fishtail helped to hold any stray pieces from the side in place better than wearing a fishtail by itself. ;)
Depending on the look you are going for, of course you can make your fishtail braid more messy, full, and deconstructed looking... or leave it as is for more of a sleek looking plait.
- 1 hair elastic to tie off the end of the braid
- Pomade, wax, gel, or water to help prevent flyaways (optional)
