Waterfall Twist

Hey everyone! Today I’m going to show you all a great hairstyle for looking nice with minimal effort. Out of the ‘nice’ hairstyles I do on myself, this is one of my favourites because it’s so easy but looks so pretty. (I’m doing it on my sister today) The waterfall twist I’ll show you today is similar to the beautiful waterfall braid-style in Sophia’s post Waterfall Twist and Reverse Fishtail, but it uses two pieces of hair instead of three to create a lovely twist. (If you like this post, I’m sure you’ll love her combo hairstyle!) This hairstyle is definitely DIY as well, and looks great on just about any length of hair. I hope you enjoy it! 😀

Items needed: hair tie, accessory (optional)

Skill level: easy

Time: 5 minutes

Step-by-step:

  1. Part hair as desired (I used a middle part) and separate out a piece of hair at the front of the head, on one side of the part.
  2. Take another section of hair next to it, and wrap/place it over the first strand.
  3. Drop the first strand, pick up a piece of hair next to it and wrap/place it over the strand you’re still holding. Repeat until you reach the back of the head and clip out of the way.
  4. Repeat on the other side, tie the two ends together, and accessorise as desired.

And there you have it! Because this style is so loose and gentle anyway, you don’t really need to pancake it, unless you have fairly long, heavy hair. If your hair’s a bit too short to do a waterfall twist all the way around your head, it looks really nice if you just go partway round, and pin the end back with something pretty.

#2 Tips/3 Tips for thin, curly, and hard to hold hair

Here are a couple of tips for thin, curly, and hard to hold hair:
  1.  Say you were going to braid all of your hair but it won’t stay in place, what you can do is get a water spray bottle and fill it with water and a small amount of conditioner, then shake it up, then spray all over your hair before braiding so it’s easier to brush through.
  2.  If you’re braiding or styling dry hair add a little bit of mouse into your hair to help the braid hold, then hairspray once you’ve finished.
  3. Another tip to keep your braids secure is to try braiding as tightly as you can and then loosen it when you’re done. 😉
I always find it easier to answer questions, than to just giving overall advice, so if you have any specific questions, I’d be more than happy to try to answer them!
