Braiding technique French waterfall photo
One of the most fashionable trends of recent years is braids. Spit “French waterfall” got its name for its similarity to the waterfall. Strands of braids are neatly stacked in cascading rows and resemble a real waterfall. In this article you will learn how to weave a braid “French waterfall” with your own hands.
For the “waterfall” braid, you will need a comb comb and a thin elastic band to match the color of your hair.
For those who are familiar with other types of hair weaving, weaving a braid “waterfall” is not difficult. It is woven according to the principle of the classic “spikelet” braid. The difference is that the strands on the one hand must be constantly released, and in their place to collect new ones.
Best of all, such a braid, like any weave, looks highlighted. Because highlighting favorably emphasizes the pattern of strands, and also creates an unusual effect.

2. We pass to the very weaving of the braid. A fairly deep side part should be done. First you need to take the hair from the front of the head and divide it into three even and identical strands as shown in the photo.

3) We start weaving like a classic braid. Only the lower strands should be constantly released from weaving. In place of the released strand, a new one is taken, from the top of the hair, moving along the head.
4) To securely fix the weave - grab one of the strands above the ear.

5) Moving along the head, braid the braid and release strands until you reach the next ear.

7) Now we should repeat the weaving on the other side.
8) As soon as free hair ends and you get to the second braid, remove the elastic and connect the last two strands to each other. Fasten them together with an elastic band so that the joint is imperceptible, and then your hairstyle will look perfect!

Kosa French waterfall is perfect for both daily and evening hairstyles.

The hairstyle has many advantages:
- it can be worn on short hair (square up to the chin),
- Looks great on straight and wavy hair,
- it’s not difficult to weave,
- Ideal hairstyle for thin and liquid hair. Thin hair first needs to be combed a little and weave, capturing thin strands,
- if you have highlighting or coloring - the scythe waterfall will successfully emphasize the locks that are different in tone. The hairstyle will look voluminous, with an outstanding pattern of weaving.
Scythe-waterfall is also woven in several versions. It can be braided from one temple and finished weaving from the opposite side, while securing with a hairpin or invisibility. You can also finish braiding with a regular pigtail, which will be on the side and playfully hang - this option is suitable for straight hair. Or lay a braided pigtail in a flower. You can braid the braid, starting a new weave on each side and connect the two braids on the crown. Also beautiful are hairstyles created from a two-tier braid waterfall. That is, under the first weaving, you can braid the second waterfall pigtail.
What hair is suitable
Before proceeding to the procedure for creating a braid-waterfall, you need to understand what hair is suitable for this procedure:
- Thick. If the hair is very lush and thick, then during the creation of the hairstyle you will have to use wax. This tool will pacify naughty hair and simplify the weaving process.
- Rare. Since the hairstyle itself is magnificent, it is ideal for thin and rare hair.
- Thin. With the help of a braid, a waterfall manages to add volume to thin hair. At the same time, they will have to be pre-curled using a curling iron.
- Direct. The hairstyle looks great on such a head of hair. If you need to give playfulness to the loose ends, then it is worth curling them with a curling iron.
- Curly. If the strands are naughty, then you can treat them with mousse.
- Long. This is the best option for creating a braid-waterfall. With the length of hair open up a ton of ways to create hairstyles. Thus, the girl will be able to get new styling at least every day.
But who will have to abandon the scythe-waterfall is the girls with very short hair.
On the video how to weave a hairstyle a waterfall:
Scythe-waterfall, how to weave, diagram. Photo step by step
Comb your hair well before weaving to unravel all the knots that might interfere with the weaving. Separate 3 strands of the same thickness on the side.
Start weaving a regular braid: put the top strand in the middle (through the top), then the bottom strand in the middle. Make two such bindings.
- Again shift the upper strand to the middle, now move the lower one to the middle. Then, the strand that is at the bottom is left (photo 4) and no longer participates in weaving - this will be that first trickle of the waterfall, a free falling strand.
- Instead of the left lock, take a small new lock from the total mass of hair from below.
- To the upper strand add a small strand of the total mass of hair on top, as if weaving new hair into an existing weave.
We continue weaving according to this scheme further. The pigtail can be taken a little down and weaved diagonally, or keep the same level. It is better to lead the falling strands during weaving and let the girl who weave this braid hold. If weaving a braid a waterfall on its own, falling strands can interfere, it is convenient to hold them with your mouth very conveniently.
Weave in the same way to the opposite side and fasten the pigtail with invisibility behind the ear. The strands can be slightly straightened to give the effect of a volumetric braid. It is advisable to fix the hairstyle with hairspray.

If the strands during weaving are not shifted over the top, but across the bottom, as with an inverted, voluminous French braid, a slightly different pattern of weaving is obtained, the pigtail is voluminous.
Scythe waterfall looks great on short hair and allows you to diversify your image.
You have to go through the hair with a comb. Run a parting. Grab three strands, equal in thickness from the side of the face. Proceed to weaving the usual three-row pigtails. When the first crossing occurred, it is necessary to release the lower strand, replacing it with a new one. It is to be taken from the total mass of hair on top. Therefore, to obtain a braid, a waterfall will have to involve upper strands in the process, capturing idle curls, and lower ones outside the braid.
Perform similar actions until the braid reaches the desired length. To fix it, use an elastic band. The remaining hair will remain fluffy. To make the hairstyle more luxurious, you need to curl them with a curling iron.
On the video, the classic way to weave hairstyles waterfall step by step in Russian:
What is a scythe waterfall
The main emphasis is placed on flowing curls flowing from the base of the braid. Hairstyle will be a great addition to any romantic look, it is relevant for celebrations and for working days. Looks great on long curly hair, especially highlighted - the game of shades successfully emphasizes the bends, which are the highlight of this hairstyle.
Classic version step by step instruction
- In the center of the head we draw a parting line.
- Then we separate the strand from the temple, form three identical parts from it and begin to weave the braid. The tension between the cells should be relatively loose.
- At the ear level, we leave the lower strand of the formed pigtail at work and replace it with a new one, taken from the lower tiers. As a result, you have the first curl of the future cascade.
- Next, add part of the hair to the upper strand of the braid and place it in the middle of the weave.
- We continue to work on this principle, forming more and more flowing strands.
- At the final stage, we fix the braid with a hairpin.
Scythe waterfall step by step with twisting
- We draw a parting line with a comb, then a strand taken from either side of the head is divided into two equal parts.
- From the formed curls we make a semblance of harnesses and hide the upper twisted strand under the lower.
- Next, we put a new one in the center of the already processed strands.
- The affiliate “colleague” remains lying on the hair, and the previous two are again folded with a flagellum. By this principle, we continue weaving further.
- Thus, every third strand will form a trickle of water in your waterfall. The direction of movement of the braid can be either parallel to the back of the head, or diagonal.
Diagonal braid waterfall weaving
The main highlight of the hairstyle in the diagonal braiding. In this variety, you can do without a parting. We comb the hair back and weave the braid according to the method described in the classical version with one slight difference - a change in the direction vector. Instead of moving the braid from the left temple to the right (or vice versa), form it from the temporal zone to the earlobe region from the opposite side.
Weaving a zigzag braid a waterfall with a ribbon step by step
- We designate three strands at the front of the head and attach a narrow ribbon to the middle.
- We weave a braid a waterfall according to the classical pattern, placing it diagonally, and use almost the entire volume of hair.
- The tape must be passed on top of the right curl and below the left. When the braid reaches the opposite side of the head, turn it back and continue weaving.
Slightly above the ear area we braid a classic scythe waterfall, moving from one temple to another. We complete the weaving with an ordinary oblique and fix it with an elastic band. From the beginning of the first pattern, in parallel, we form another braid-waterfall with the inclusion in its frame of strands remaining after the first braid. At the end, we switch to a normal pigtail and as a final stroke we combine two braids into one. If hair length allows, the number of wicker fragments can be increased.
How to braid a two-sided braid yourself
- After preparing the hair and creating the necessary curly curls, we form a deep parting.
- Then, in the front of the head at the right temple, we separate the three strands necessary for your spit of the waterfall.
- Then weave parallel to the nape line according to the scheme:
- When the movement of the braid reaches the center of the head, fix it with an elastic band and start weaving a new braid of the waterfall from the area of the left temple.
- When the second pigtail reaches the level of the first, connect them in any way you like.
How to braid a French braid a waterfall with a beam
This option is based on the classic way of weaving a waterfall spit with only one small variation. The hair hanging from the pigtail and the pigtail itself must be combined into a bundle fixed on the side opposite from the base of the pigtail. To give volume, it can be slightly combed, and the hair is fixed with hairpins.
On both sides
First, divide the hair into two equal sections using a parting. Start weaving on one side of the head using the technique described above. When weaving is over, fasten the pigtail with an elastic band and start creating another element of weaving.
But only its beginning will be on the other side of the face. When the two elements of the hairstyle are finished, you can combine them into one braid, secure it with a hairpin.
Pigtail with a bundle
Proceed to the creation of the braid is also necessary, as described above. But only, reaching the ear, it is worth fixing the remaining free hair with an elastic band.
Those strands that were not involved in the course of weaving, comb and create a bundle. It should be formed under the waterfall and fixed with hairpins. How a beautiful bun for short hair looks and how good it looks on models is indicated in the article.
Run a pigtail according to the standard scheme, and those hair that remained free to curl with a curling iron. Be sure to varnish the finished hairstyle so that it keeps its shape throughout the day. But how volume curls are made at home and how difficult it is to execute, is indicated in the article.
To weave a braid with a ribbon, you will have to use a thin ribbon from a satin, it can be in color with an outfit, make-up or stand out against the general background.
The process of creating a hairstyle is as follows:
- Attach the tape to the middle strand so that its tips could be masked in the hair.
- Weave braids in the same way as in previous versions. At the same time, make sure that the right part of the braid and ribbon is concentrated on top.
- Complete weaving with an ordinary braid. The part of the ribbon that remains free must be tied nicely near the tip of the braid. But how good a Hollywood wave hairstyle with a ribbon looks and how simple it is for execution will help to understand the video in the article.

2) An excellent salvage styling will be for rare hair, as it creates additional volume. And beautiful curls, which most often complement the image, also along with a braid, will make the hairstyle more magnificent.

4) To cope with curls is not at all difficult, you just need to use the mousse and the problem will be solved. If this does not help, then you can resort to ironing, but this option is not the best, since the iron can spoil the hair, so do not forget about the tool with a thermal protective effect. 5) But, and the length of the curls can be different, the main thing is not too short, not shorter than to the middle of the chin.
It is impossible to weave a braid a waterfall very tightly, this will lead not only to the fact that it will not look very beautiful and natural, but also to possible headaches that will cause a lot of inconvenience.

Hairstyle waterfall - step by step weaving braids
A hairstyle with a braided waterfall is best for medium hair, but for long hair it can also turn out fine, you just need to act carefully so as not to get confused.
As mentioned earlier, there are several options for weaving, to begin with, the classic version will be considered.
The scheme of weaving a waterfall spit is not complicated and even a beginner can do it. Step by step instructions for weaving and photos will be presented below.
So how do you make a waterfall hairstyle for yourself? Firstly, the hair should be clean and combed, only then you can start work. To begin with, a small strand is taken from one of the temples, it must be divided into three parts and begin to weave an ordinary pigtail. But there are some differences, a strand that in normal weaving is shifted between the central and lateral, in this case it should fall into the total mass of hair, this will be the first trickle of the waterfall, and another one will be taken instead.
Then you should act in the same way, gradually picking up strands and dropping some. In this case, you do not need to take too thin curls, they will create a small pigtail and then it will turn out not very expressively.
The strands that are left hanging freely will look better if they are slightly twisted into a curling iron.
Weaving is done around the head from one temple to another. But you can make it oblique or, for example, create several rows of braids, if you want to complicate the hairstyle.
There are a lot of options for weaving braids of this type.
For girls, this image is also perfect, you can use it for some holiday or even at graduation. This is a great summer hairstyle. Braids are very relevant in this summer season.
Scythe waterfall - weaving scheme of the second option
This option of a braid hairstyle called a waterfall will make it possible to make not a straight, but an inclined braid, that is, it will go down from the temple to the back of the head. It is best here to make one pigtail on each side and connect them on the back of the head.
The meaning of weaving here is the same as in the previous version, just as the strand drops and another one is taken instead, but at the same time you need to move in the downward direction and pick up the lower strands. At the end of the work, it is also better to tighten the hair.
Such a hairstyle falls perfectly with bangs. At the same time, it does not need to be captured in a braid, and the curls that remain hanging over the face can also be wound. It turns out a very gentle and romantic image.
Braiding waterfall short hair
Owners of short hair can also find a suitable version of the waterfall hairstyle.
Of course, you can’t do a hairstyle on very short hair, but when cutting, for example, on a square, it is very possible to create such an image. Moreover, in this case, it will work even more convenient, because the hair is less and there will be no confusion with them in the hands.
And the weaving pattern remains the same, as for longer lengths.
Hairstyle waterfall with ribbons
This version of a waterfall type hairstyle is performed using additional ribbons. Such beautiful ribbons can be purchased at any needlework store or where hair accessories are sold.
The tape is tied to one of the strands, you need to do this in such a way that the end is not too long and can be hidden in the future with a hairdress. You need to snap to about the middle. Then everything is weaving, as before, only you need to control so that the right lock and the tape itself are in the upper part.
At the end, the tape can be wrapped around the tip of the pigtail, it will turn out very interesting.
