Instructions:
Begin with hair wet or dry {we did dry here, but some people find it easier to section off strands of hair when it is wet}, and part the hair in the middle…
If your hair is fine or silky, add a little bit of spray wax to the hair to add texture and grip, which will firm up and help hold the loops in place…
I like to start about 1-1.5 inches back from the front of the hair, pick up a decent size section of hair and wrap it around your pointer and middle finger, giving the loop a twist counterclockwise to create your first perfect loop {the looping direction should have the hair going downward, then back up and around creating a loop, and then the hair should fall straight down behind the loop as your waterfall strand}…
Keep your two fingers in the middle of the loop and pinch the falling strand of the hair with your thumb against your ring finger…
With those two fingers, reach through the loop and pick up another same-sized section of hair {feel free to add some pomade to each strand of hair if you need help controlling flyaways}, pulling it halfway through the first loop…
Then twist that hair counterclockwise to create a second matching loop…
Have your daughter {or use your teeth for DIY} to hold the fallen strand of the first loop for extra security as you work your way around the head…
Repeat Steps #4-6 all the way across the back or the head…
On your last loop, pull the new strand completely through the loop and let it fall…
Then, using two small bobby pins to pin that loop in place, being careful to pin under the falling strand to help hide the bobby pins out of the way}…
If your loops have stretched or fallen out of shape, you can now go back and gently adjust the falling strands to either tighten or loosen up the loops to the desired look…
With the first strand that your daughter is holding or you in your teeth, use two small bobby pins to pin the first loop in place just as you did on the other side {this will secure the front of the braid}…
Add a setting spray or hairspray {if desired}.
*Optional: Pull remaining loose hair into a loose braid or fishtail to secure the ends and help the style last all day.
