If you haven’t seen the waterfall braid floating around Pinterest, then you probably don’t actually have a Pinterest account. It’s E.V.E.R.Y.W.H.E.R.E. I’ve pinned it here and here and here, so I figured that I probably ought to finally try it. First you ought to know that it’s way easier than I expected.
Here it is after I did it. I quickly curled my hair first using a method I’ll be posting tomorrow (and that I now love). See how it stops right there in a weird place? My arms are short and I couldn’t figure out how switch them over to the other side without totally losing my strands, so that’s where it ended. And then the husband-man pointed out that it looked a little strange (which I knew, but was trying to deny to myself). When a man such as him notices that a hairstyle looks weird…it looks weird. So I had to figure out what to do with it now, and the next picture is what I came up with.
I took out the bobby pins holding the end of the waterfall braid down, braided it (normally) as far as I could and tied it off with an elastic. Then I pulled the rest of my hair into a loose side-ish ponytail, wrapped the braid around it and bobbypinned it in place. It kind of loses the effect of the waterfall though.
I *like* the waterfall braid, but I’m not quite sure what to do with it yet. Any brilliant ideas for the hair-styling challenged? I’m not so talented enough in the hair department as to make it go all the way around my head. And even if I were, I wouldn’t know what to do with it once I finished.
So, have you tried the waterfall braid? How did you like it?
