Waterfall Twists into Mermaid Braid | Cute Hairstyles
To be honest, I haven’t loved the style enough to film one because I didn’t particularly like how the strands pulled into the braid from the front and sides.
Thinking about it for some weeks now, it hit me that we should create a hairstyle combination using the Waterfall Twists as a base for the style… and then use the falling strands of those twists as the “add-ins” for the Mermaid Braid!
Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 small hair elastic, hairspray, and accessory {if desired}.
Time Requirement: 8-10 minutes
Skill Level: Hard
Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by brushing hair, and making a center part right down the head…
  2. Complete a waterfall twist on both sides of the head, beginning near the temples and ending at the back of the head…
  3. Take the ends of both twists {you should have 4 strands total} and create three strands from them {I do this by joining together two strands, one from each side, to create one strand}…
  4. Now begin a simple braid….
  5. After one complete stitch, pick up the nearest waterfall strand {the hair running through the twist} on the left side of the head and add it into your left-most braid strand…
  6. .Now pick up the nearest waterfall strand on the right side of the head and add it into your right-most braid strand…
  7. Next, complete a regular braid stitch without adding in any hair {this will space out the stranding and create the mermaid braid look}..
  8. Repeat Steps 5-7 by adding in the waterfall strands until you run out…
  9. After all waterfall strands are included, finish the rest of the hair off into the simple braid…
  10. Secure with a hair elastic…
  11. Add any accessory or ribbon as desired.

Enjoy!
