How To Do A Twist Braid (and Waterfall Braid Video Tutorial)

(Still looking for a fun Mother’s Day gift? This week only we are selling the Ultimate Date Book and the A to Z Guide to Marriage books for almost 50% off retail price!)

 We are so excited to have Steph back from the fabulous blog Hair and Make-Up By Steph.

This girl is seriously so talented! After sharing her 15 Ways to Pull Back Your Bangs, we had a lot of questions about how to do The Twist Braid. Steph has graciously come back and show us exactly how this is done!
 Step 1.  Decide how big of a section you want for your twist braid, then clip everything else aside for later.
Step 2.  Backcomb the entire section.
Step 3.  After it’s backcombed use the comb to smooth down the top layer so it doesn’t look ratted.Step 4.  Start by taking a thin section (about 1/4 inch) off of your part and splitting it in half.
 Step 5.  Twist the front half over the back half, so the back half is now in front.

Step 6.  Take another thin section (just like the first one) and add it to the front piece.

 Step 7.  Now just repeat the last two steps for the remainder of the twist braid – twist the front piece over the back piece, add a new hair to the front piece, twist it over the back piece, etc.

Step 8.  Secure it by inserting bobby pins up and inwards in the end of the braid.

There you go! She makes it look so easy! :)
