Our video tutorial this week is based on a style that has been on our “to do list” for quite awhile now. We have been seeing this “side swept” braided type of hairstyle all over Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, etc. Several different variations have been popular on social media, including a regular waterfall braid, and a waterfall twist (both techniques were used to create this side swept style.)
Ever since posting the “scissor waterfall braid” several months ago (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COdbe7VrGiY) we have been wanting to do a tutorial on a “braided scissor braid” as well (which is the variation of the original “waterfall scissor braid” shown in our tutorial today.) So, we decided to combine the 2 techniques into one video, and the “side swept braided scissor waterfall” was born. 😉 I’m loving how the braided scissor braid turned out. I think it looks really cool and intricate, even though it isn’t all that complicated to do.
Depending on your outfit and how you style the braid: This hairstyle can be worn as a relaxed, effortless, beachy, casual, messy bohemian type of look. Or, as more of a special occasion, fancy, glamorous hairstyle. I could even see this working for Prom, Homecoming, Weddings, photos, etc.
As mentioned in our video, we used some overnight Dutch braids to create our heatless waves/curls for the base of this style, as we wanted more of a relaxed look. You can leave your hair straight, or add curls from a curling wand/curing iron if you prefer.
