Start braiding the hair by crossing the right section over the middle section, then crossing the left section over the middle section.

After completing a regular braid cross, drop the right section of hair and let it hang down while adding small section of hair from the top of your head creating the waterfall effect.

Step 7: Secure the Braid
Once you reach the end of the hair, secure the braid with a hair tie.
