This braid exudes romance and femininity, and once you’ve mastered the art of twirling your hair the right way, you’re going to be able to wear the ‘do in so many ways. Ahead — a step-by-step breakdown, and some iterations of waterfall hairstyles.


10 Waterfall Braid Aesthetics To Recreate On Days You Want To Amp It Up

  1. Minimal 

Minimal | Waterfall Braid

You can recreate this waterfall braid by dividing the front of your hair into two sections. Begin by crossing the two over one another before bringing in another section of hair from the top, and placing it in between the two chunks. Let it go, and cross the chunk at the bottom over the one at the top, and continue doing this until you have reached the end of the length. Secure it with a hair-tie, and repeat on the other side. You can pin the two together at the back of your head. 


Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Mangosteen & Avocado Hair Mask

A conditioner is necessary for your hair-care routine but you must also invest in a hair mask as it is an integral part of any thoughtful hair-care regimen. This mask is infused with superfoods like avocado as well as mangosteen to nourish and repair dry and damaged hair.  Enriched with the goodness of Vitamin B5 to reinstate your tresses’ long-lost lustre, it retains their natural moisture balance too. 


  1. Halo

Halo | Waterfall Braid Hairstyle

Divide your hair into three sections at the front  — like you’d do with a three-way braid. Do one loop like a three-way braid. Pick up a chunk from the top of their hair — above the top-most chunk — and cross it over the chunk in the middle. Cross the bottom-most strand over the middle, and pick up another chunk — from the bottom this time — and cross it over the new middle chunk. You can let go of the bottom chunk now. Repeat the process by crossing the top over the middle, and picking up more hair from the top of the head. Add it to the middle chunk, and continue toward the back of the head. This is the prettiest waterfall braid hairstyle.


Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Cacao Coconut & Coffee Shampoo

Recharge your hair by indulging in this superfoods-charged shampoo. Infused with coffee, coconut, and cacao, it moisturises the hair intensely, treats dandruff and frizz, improves circulation for accelerated growth of hair, and adds volume and strength without weighing your tresses down. 


  1. French 

French | Waterfall Braid Hairstyle

Now that you know how to attempt a two-way and three-way waterfall, you can recreate this look as well. Bring both the braids to the back, and when you’ve reached about mid-way, join the two, and create a three-way braid until you’ve reached the end. Secure with a hair-tie, and add roses to the braid.
