This style works best on straight or loose waves. Brush out all the knots with a wide tooth comb. Part your hair how you normally would, and begin your braid on the right side of your part. Grab the top section and divide into three strands. Braid your strands regularly three times, beginning from the right strand. When you get to the left strand (the part closest to the middle of the scalp), add more hair to it like a French braid and fold that strand to the center.
Step 2: Drop the Strand
This is where it gets tricky. After you've French braided your left strand (now center), drop the right strand and let it fall down. Pick up another small section of hair next to where your original strand fell—that's your new right strand. Braid it into your style as usual and repeat this process—French braid the left strand, drop the right strand, and pick up an adjacent new piece. Gradually cascade the style towards the middle of your head.
Step 3: Pin and Secure
Once you've reached a comfortable point to stop your braid, secure it to your scalp with bobby pins.
Step 4: Fishtail Accent
Braid the remaining piece of hair left from your waterfall into a fishtail braid. Secure the braid with a clear elastic.
