This fun waterfall/feather braid is a variation of the "flip knot braid" we posted last week. Of course, waterfall braids have always been a favorite braiding technique of ours.... a favorite most likely shared with many. I mean really, who doesn't love the intricate, yet relaxed bohemian look of a waterfall braid? So gorgeous! This knotted variation is great if you are looking for something unique and a little bit different from the standard braided waterfall (which has become so popular.)
This braid can be worn on the side (as shown in our tutorial below.) Or, you could bring the braid all the way around her head horizontally or diagonally. You could make a braid on each side and join them in the center. Or, you could use this braid as an accent to a ponytail, updo, bun etc. This could really be the base for an endless amount of hairstyles if you want to get creative. ;)
You could wear this hairstyle for school, work, every day, the beach, etc. Or for more formal or special occasions. With the right dress, I could see this working for Prom, Homecoming, Weddings, Brides, Flower Girls, Communions, or photos.
Supplies needed to recreate this hairstyle:
- 1 small elastic to tie off the braid
- comb or brush
- water, gel, pomade or wax (to help control flyaways)
