For the third article in our Hair and Make-Up Master Class series, we look at creating whimsical waterfall braids.

This is a very romantic style of braid as small pieces of hair cascade from the braid and flow down to softly meet the other hair. With the summer months approaching, it would suit a casual beach or boho wedding style.

With images by Kate at Quince and Mulberry Studios, Beck from Step ‘N’ Out Hair and Body shows you how to create this dreamy look in a few easy steps.
