How To do a Waterfall Updo On Yourself Hairstyle

Waterfall Updo Start this style with 1-inch wand curls and teased roots. If you need to brush up on your Waterfall Braid technique

 

1. Section off the front layers of hair on the heaviest side of your part. I’ve sectioned off only a few inches back from my forehead.

 

2. Tie the remaining hair into an upside down bun, meaning that on your last pass through just simply flip the ends up.

3. Create whatever shape you’d like with the bun.

 

4. I wanted something very elegant looking and I think it’s very pretty when you have the Waterfall’ed section from the front meeting with hair that’s Waterfall’ing out of the bun. Get creative and be patient getting that perfect bun.

 

5. Gather a layer of hair near the part and start a Waterfall Braid. Divide the hair into three sections, pull the back section over the middle, then pull the front section over the middle section, move all three strands into your front hand, and add a new section of hair to the back section. Braid the back section over the middle, transfer all three strands to the back
hand, then drop that bottom piece. Replace the section you dropped with a new one, and braid it over the middle.

 

6. Continue these steps until you reach the end.

 

7. Wrap the Waterfall Braid around the bun and secure with a bobby pin.
