Follow these steps to get this double dutch waterfall headband style braid!

Step 1 / Beginning with a part on the right side, separate out a section hair at the front; from the part down to the left ear.

Step 2 / Tie off this front section to work with later.

Step 3 / Next, take a piece of hair right behind the section we tied off, near the part, and separate it into three sections for the first braid.

Step 4 / Begin a dutch braid by wrapping the back strand under the middle.

Step 5 / Now wrap the front strand under the middle strand.

Step 6 / Next, wrap the back strand under the middle again and bring in hair.

Step 7 / Then, take the front strand, that would normally go under the middle next, and pull it to the other side of the head and clip it out of the way.

Step 8 / Now take a section of hair directly behind that strand and wrap it under the middle strand in its place.

Step 9 / Repeat steps 6-8 until you reach the top of the ear.

Step 10 / Braid the hair into a regular braid and tie it off with an elastic band.

Step 11 / Next, release the clip holding the strands we separated out as the waterfall portion.

Step 12 / Take a piece of hair at the top of the had near the crown and divide it into two sections.

Step 13 / Grab the first waterfall strand and include that so you should now have your three strands for the next braid.

Step 14 / Braid the hair downwards into a dutch braid pulling in the strands from the waterfall portion on the back side.

Step 15 / When you reach the ear, finish in a regular braid and tie off with an elastic band.

Step 16 / Now pull all the hair up into a ponytail.

Step 17 / Gently loosen the top strands from the first braid.

Step 18 / Now carefully loosen the side strands from the front braid so the woven aspect can be seen more clearly.

Step 19 / Grab a curling iron and curl the ends of the ponytail.

Step 20 / Finish by smoothing down any flyaways with hairspray.

And that is my first ever written tutorial with 20 steps, my friends!

    So I tried this one and ended up with an ugly part going down the side of my head behind the second braid. Did you continue to pull hair as you turned the braid?

      If you pull on the edges of the braids at the ends, this will help hide the part between them. I do pull hair all the way through until the end.

    I really love the more challenging hair styles, but maybe some easier ones would be nice when you’re running late in the morning and need to do something quick to look put together! Love all the styles though!
