Yes, I'm late. Yes, I've been late a lot lately. But at least, I'm posting, right? Right?
Fine, be that way. I just won't share the new hairstyle I have for you. Well.... Maybe if you beg....
I don't hear any begging.
Ah! There it is. Let's get started then.
I haven't worn this in a while, but that doesn't mean I don't love it. This is an amazing hairstyle by any standards. Do it right, and it'll last all day. It also works for day or night. It does take some practice since it combines a waterfall braid and a lace braid, and the spacing may be tricky.
The Ladder Braid
- Make a deep part on your preferred side.
- About an inch down from the part, pick up a medium-sized section and divide it into three pieces. You should have top, middle, and bottom pieces.
- Do a waterfall braid around your head. There's a tutorial link below if you need it.
- Drop a few more pieces from the bottom pieces of the braid and then finish with a regular braid.
- About an inch and a half below where you started the waterfall braid, pick up a small section of loose hair and divide it into two sections. These will be your middle and bottom pieces.
- Pick up the first section you dropped from the waterfall braid This will be your top piece.
- Cross the top piece over the middle piece. You now have a new top and middle.
- Cross the bottom piece over the new middle. This gives you new middle and bottom pieces.
- Pick up the next section you dropped from the waterfall braid and add it to the top pieces.
- Repeat step 7.
- Repeat steps 8-10 until you run out of dropped sections to add.
- Finish with a regular braid and secure with a ponytail.
