1. Create a side part. Starting on the heavy side, pick up a piece of hair and divide it into three parts.
2. Cross the lower strand over the middle strand.
3. Then cross the upper strand over the middle strand.
4. Now drop the lower strand, and pick up a new strand right next to it; cross the new strand over the middle strand. This is called a waterfall braid. Continue the same way diagonally across the head, incorporating hair normally into the upper strand and dropping the lower strand, picking up a new strand right next to it as if you’re doing a half-up waterfall braid.
