All you need is long hair, a hair clip and some elastics.
Modified Waterfall Braid Step by Step
Start by creating a classic waterfall braid.
First, grab a strand from the front and divide it into three equal sections.
Place the top strand over the middle strand, then the bottom strand down the center of the braid. Each time you get to the top strand, pick up some hair and add it to the braid.
When you get to the bottom strand, release it and add a new piece of hair from underneath. Repeat at least five times and secure the braid with a hair clip.
Take the released strands and create small braids using the three strand technique.
Remove the hair clip and start a simple three strand braid by also adding the first small braid.
Add the second released small braid to next right strand and so on.
