Triple French Double Waterfall Braided Bun

Well! Waterfall braid hairstyle looks so intricate and tricky, yet beautiful. I must say that it’s an advance version of braiding.  The tricky part for this hairstyle is picking the right strand of waterfall pieces while taking the stitch. Here I started braiding from center by grabing the hair from eyebrows to eyebrows. This one is similar to the criss cross waterfall braid I did. http://tanvivayla.com/portfolio/criss-cross-waterfall-braid-2 Then take the hair from temple on both sides and incorporate the waterfall pieces. After you are done, grab all the hair into a high bun. Also check out the double waterfall braid I did a while ago.  http://tanvivayla.com/portfolio/double-waterfall You’ll Need: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, hair elastics, bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}.
