A waterfall braid is a stunning braid which has a graduated line, finished on a slight diagonal line, as opposed to one which is straight across. Implementing a waterfall look into your hairstyle is an incredibly convenient way of sweeping your hair off your face for practical reasons, but also ensuring that your hair is incredibly stylish at the same time!
