I don’t have much time right now, but I wanted to throw together a post to show you a new style I tried today. As I said before, the few times a year that I flat iron my hair I want to try new looks that I can’t do (or can’t do very well) on my curly hair. Yesterday, I styled it after this inspirations photo: The first try didn’t work, but I liked the way it looked on the second try. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo. Today, I tried the waterfall braid. This can be done quite successfully on curly or curled hair, but I have a reeeeeeeeally hard time making it come out right on myself. I followed the video tutorial below with a slight variation. Instead of coiling the entire free length of the braid into a “flower”, I just did one loop and pinned it. It gave the same basic look without me having to braid all the way to the end and then trying to coil 2 feet of tiny braid. I am pretty happy with how this turned out!
