Tricks + Treats: Cascade Braid with Sarah Lockhart

Hello, dear readers! This is Sarah, and I could not be more excited to add a style post to Elsie's parade of Tricks + Treats!

I think that braids are one of the most versatile and easy hairstyles to wear during Autumn. They are textured and seemingly unintentional, or smoothed and polished.

Today, I'm sharing the cascade/waterfall braid with you. I think it's really easy to do on yourself, and others, and you can switch it up a bit to match your day's style. 
We decided to use it for a halo shape!

Step One: Begin with a standard 3 strand braid.

Step Two: After 3 or 4 weaves, drop a strand. Gather a new strand that pulls the braid toward your wanted direction. Repeat as many times as necessary until you get your desired shape.
It really is that easy!

* If you pull at strands as you go, you can get an even more defined braid shape (like Elsie's)! Love, Sarah
