The Best Waterfall Braid Hairstyles

Waterfall Braid: A Classic Style

Classics are timeless by definition. When in doubt, choose a classic waterfall braid. A larger waterfall braid is better for beginners. After you are comfortable with the technique, try smaller braids like the one shown above.

Rose Waterfall Braid

Make waterfall braids on each side of your head. Then, weave the tails in a regular braid. Wrap the braid around your neck in a bun. You can pancake the braided bun to make the braid look more romantic. This hairstyle is great for prom!

Waterfall Half Ponytail

This hairstyle is very pretty and easy to do. It is important to leave the braid loose so you can easily pancake it at the ends. This will look like a casual, messy finish. This hairstyle is perfect for pairing with boho clothes.

Intricate Waterfall Braid

Although the waterfall braid may seem complicated initially, it will become easy for you. This intricate waterfall braid will take your Khaleesi braids up if you already know how to do it.

Deep V Waterfall

Another hairstyle you might see on Game of Thrones and Vikings is this. Two waterfall braids should be placed on each side of your head. To create unique twists, twist their tails. To form the deep V, join them just a bit above your hair.

Elegant Waterfall Braid

You can make the waterfall braid look elegant by itself, or you can add delicate flowers to give it a romantic touch. This braid creates a forest-like aesthetic that will make you feel like a forest princess.

Crown Waterfall Braid

Don’t be afraid to add accessories if you don’t like them. The crown waterfall braid can be worn alone. Even though it is made of your hair, the crown stands out and looks stunning.

Messy Waterfall Braid

Everybody is looking for the perfect messy style, and here’s mine: the messy waterfall braid. This style is great for any occasion and can be worn with any clothing. It’s versatile!

Double Waterfall-Single Fishtail braid

It reminds me of a waterfall that flows into one stream. It is stunning. Make two waterfall braids, one at each side and one at the back. To achieve this look, combine the waterfall braids and weave them into one fishtail braid.

Waterfall Fishtail Braid

Make a fishtail braid with your beautiful locks. Here’s the twist: instead of adding hair to one section of the braid, continue adding hair to the sides. This will make the hair look like a French twist in the middle.

Double Waterfall Fishtail Braids

This is a great style for young girls. Split your hair in the middle, and create two waterfall braids on each side. Don’t limit your hair to one section of the braid. Instead, add hair to both the top and bottom sections. Secure the waterfall braids using elastic bands once you reach the back hairline. Make fishtail braids with the rest of your hair.
