Waterfall Top Knot | Day 16

32  4crazyfaces

What?  I’m not weird.  Why would you say that?  I’m FUN!  hehe!  I saw todays hairstyle on Albion Fits homepage months ago and immediately knew I needed to figure it out.  It’s simply a waterfall braid with the falling pieces falling back instead of down.  Genius right?  I wish I could take credit.  I love that the braid is flat against your head, it doesn’t poke out which leaves your face shape in tact.  I tend to shy away from styles that frame my face weird or give me an awkward shape.  This one is just perfect.  It’s fun and flirty, it’d be great to wear to the gym, to soccer practice, cheer practice, and when you’re running errands being mom.

Step-by-step Instructions:

  1. Section off a chunk of hair from one inch behind the ears and up.  Tie the rest of the hair into a clip
  2. Divide a one inch section next to your part into three sections
  3. We are going to braid the front section over the middle section and then braid the back section over the middle section
  4. The new back section is going to be clipped back onto the ponytail.  We just want to get it out of the way.
  5. Then replace the section we just dropped with a new section from behind the braid
  6. That new section is going to go over the middle section, all three sections will be transferred into the back hand and then add a new section of hair to the front section
  7. Braid the front section over the middle section, and braid the back section over the middle section
  8. Drop that back section into the clip and replace with a new section.
  9. Continue these steps until you’ve wrapped the braid around to your ear.  Tie off with a bobby pin
  10. Tie the hair up into a messy bun and spray with hairspray

This hairstyle is much easier to understand when you watch the video!  The video is at the bottom of this post — MUAH!
