So I can reach and help more engineers! Thanks!
can you tell me pleas is this configuration good enough for solidworks
8GB RAM DDR4
nvidia GEFORCE 920M 2GB DDR3 dedecated
1TB HDD @5400rpm
planing on upgrade to SSD
I am a student in aeronautical sience and aerospace engeneering I need solidworks for light usage and assemblies under 200 parts also I want to use it with fusion 360 for cad and cam because I love cnc machining and thanks
Hello, I am not an Engineering major. I'm a Computer Science major, but I decided to try and ask here because you seem very genuine and eager to help the STEM community. So far I have learned the basics of C++ and have used Linux server and VS 2017. I'm not sure what other programs I will be using in my future courses though.
I'm expecting to do lots of coding and when I transfer to a university, I will be taking a few engineering courses required for my Bachelor's in CS. I figured a laptop/tablet that works for an engineering student would be more than enough for me. My budget is 1K, maybe a little more than that if I find something that would really fit my situation.
I want something that will hopefully last me a long time. I have a generic $500 HP laptop and it's already giving out after a year. The specs I would really like would be i7 processor, at least 16GB RAM, 256SSD. I am trying to look for a 2-in-1 because I really want to do digital notetaking so that I don't have to haul around paper and textbooks. Would those specs be reasonable for my situation?
IN A HURRY FOR BLACK FRIDAY!
I wanted to know which laptop to get for a mechanical engineer who will be using a lot of solid works and other software for the program.
I'm leaning towards the Dell XPS 13, what are your thoughts and would you recommend otherwise? I'm really open minded and would appreciate feedback, thanks.
You didn't go over the type of graphics card. I bought the Asus thinking it was great. If you game, sure. But if you are using this for mechanical engineering it sucks! For CAD software you need a Nvidia graphics card. Not an Intel graphics card. I had no idea about this when I bought my computer. Now I am stuck with this expensive computer that is almost impossible to do CAD on.
I would like to give a side note behance the videocards.. As a mechanical engineer and you are using solidworks CAD and an Invidia GeForce videocard it wont help... this because solidworks works with openGL cards and GeForce does not have that but a Quaddro card does. So I would recommend using a quaddro card and high storage for a better working solidworks.
I am planning to buy a mac but want your opinion about it. I'll be studying masters in industrial informatics n will have to deal with software like matlab, eagle,keil, python, Arduino,labview, simulink etc what specifically i should look for mac or Windows
Can you make another one for 2018 please since the new school year is coming up again? Or is this list still good? I'm just looking for a computer to have inventor or solid works that I can also play occasional games
Hi, i study Civil Engineering here in my country, and now i'm looking for a new Laptop that can run all the programs i use really smooth (revit, Autocad, civil 3d,......) ¿what laptop should I get?
Thank you, awesome video by the way :)
What sort of specs would you recommend for an ultrabook to be able to handle most single parts and moderate sized assemblies consisting of around 20 parts in CAD? Because I'm after something that can not only handle that but looks sleek and cool too (think I'm asking for a lot LOL!) something similar to the hp spectre x360 but with higher specs possibly?
I am a CAD and CAE engineer i wanted a laptop of 16GB DDR4 Ram, 2 or 4 GB NVIDIA graphics, 3.0GHz or above clock speed And Min 256GB SSD and TB HDD, Drive
Can u help me by telling ur opinion which laptop match to this configuration and I am strictly in Budget
Hi, I’m starting my mechanical engineering degree in October 2018. I’m looking at a MacBook 12” with i7 processor, 512gb SSD and 16 gb ram. Please can you advise if this is a good buy. I’ll put windows on it so it can dual boot.
I am seeking for a fast operating laptop. I work on cad, 3dsmax,Revit. But my laptop lags time to time. It takes hours for completing a task. The softwares doesn't respond time to time. If you could tell me a better option. Thank you
Jesus Christ, fellow engineering students, GET A QUADRO (or amd firepro), those drivers are incredibly useful for cad and ESPECIALLY civil 3D and solidworks. And if you are a gamer forget those Gtxes, you’ll be fine with a Quadro.
Would a smaller screen of 13.3” be alright if it has good specs? I’m a weak one and would rather not carry around a 5 pound laptop everywhere. I’m looking at the newest HP x360. What are your recommendations?
Hey in the fall I'm gong to be starting college and major in mechanical engineering am planning to buy a new laptop abs have been thinking about the hp envy but just wanted to knits what you think would be the best laptop for my major?
Jake Voorhees!!! I just watched your video. I am a Mechanical Engineering student, using solid works. I just went out and bought I laptop but I want to make sure I made the right choice.
I bought it from best buy. here is the description: Asus - 2-in-1 15.6" 4K Ultra HD Touch-Screen Laptop Intel Core i7 16GB Memory NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M - 2TB HDD + 512GB SSD - Sandblasted matte black aluminum. If you could help in anyway that would be awesome. I really want this laptop to last me a long time, not be slow, be durable and just overall be an amazing laptop to solidworks and 3D work. I need help ASAP!! Thank you! Just need to know so I can return it and look at my options.
You probably not still answering on this video, but I will be starting a BEME at SUNY Maritime College, and my 4 year old laptop just died. I was looking at the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 15" with an i7. How well would that one work? I know the stylus would allow me to take better notes on it.
please help me, I am going into engineering next year, I am thinking about either the xps 15 or the surface pro. I think in terms of performance xps obv wins, the only advantage I see in surface is its portability. I wonder whether that portability can boost up its usability in comparison to xps's performance
am going to start my Civil engineering course this year in china, but my friends say that i should change to other,engineering courses because Civil engineering job opportunities are limited these days
Hi jake! I'm resuming my studies in mechanical engineering soon and planning to get an xps 13 instead of xps 15 due to portibality reasons. Im having doubts weather the graphics card (intel 620) is sufficient enough to run solidworks or other modelling software. Should i go for more powerful g card? (Sorry for bad English)
福永茜 the 13’ version will be fine with sufficient RAM, but for modeling and 3D rendering I would recommend you to buy a computer with a dedicated graphics card that isn’t meant for gaming, for example Nvidia M1200. But yeah, your choice would be more than enough :)
Hello !! I'm first year aerospace engineering student in TU Delft in the netherlands and I don't know what to choose,my budget is max 1.4k
Should i go for a macbook or windows computer?
I'm really thinking changing to apple but I'm not sure yet,keep up the good work buddy!!
Hey, I studying civil engineering for two years and think about buying new laptop. I cant deciside if i really new powerful video card (geforce GTX series) or i will be enougt with weaker videocard ( MX series.)? I think I need a lot of power of my processor and video card, because I will use a lot of 3d sofware (autocad, revit). So, what is your opinion. Thank you.
Hey Jake, your reviews are really helpful! I'm an experienced programmer planning to buy new laptop; I work on Visual Studio mostly as well as web development along with browsing. I'm looking for
Dell 7567 - 16 GB, i7 7th gen, 15.6FHD
Dell 7559 - 16 GB, i7 6th gen, 15.6FHD
Dell 7560 - 16 GB, i7 7th gen, 15.6FHD, 128 GB SSD
Can you suggest which one from above is good? Or any other model you can think of?
My criteria: 16 GB, good battery backup, multi tasking, SSD would be good, FHD.
Will dual core do or should I go for quad core?
Please let me know.
Hey! I am taking software engineering in the next few years. Any recommendations? I'm not much of a gamer, but I do edit a buttload of videos and animations. I am considering the Dell XPS 15, but I'm kind of tight on the budget. I also considered the Apple MacBook Pro 15 (which is more expensive), but I heard it doesn't work well with Adobe Premiere, which I prefer more than Final Cut Pro. Would really appreciate your insight on this. Cheers.
I think I'm actually gonna get the asus one since the Dell XPS 15 is kind of too expensive. Thank you so much for responding, not a lot of youtubers do that. By the way, I'm actually a girl. But don't worry, I get that a lot haha. Probably because of my display pic.
Hey Esam10. I personally like macbooks, but you will rarely find engineers with apple products. Engineers like full control, the ability to customize everything. They want more power for the $$, and generally apple laptops will not get you the same CPU / RAM / HDD space / power for the price. Also, we have to use all these little software programs and so on, sometimes they may not be programmed for Macs. Macs are so widespread, I would not worry too much, but this is just something I see.
At the end of the day, here is my advice. Buy the laptop that you like the most. The one that fits your budget and fits your needs :)
Hey Marcus, thanks for watching and commenting. The category for workstation laptops are these, especially the first 2-3 which are bigger engineering / gamer focused laptops. Even if these are not labeled as "workstation laptops" or "mobile workstations", they are comparable. If you have some suggestions or things I have missed, feel free to comment. Thank you! Join us in the FB group man https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/ cheers!
Iam going to have this course next year and I am about to buy a new computer. As a student, I am on a thight budget. I would prefer to get the computer which may get the work done that I need to do and play some games from time to time such as League of Legends. The computer I am interested in is the one who in total gives me the most for the least money. Laptop or desktop PC does not really matter, I prefer to work on desktops but laptops are more convinient.
The asus ux430 is also a great option. It has a 14 inch screen and under 3 pounds. Great portability.
$799 option has 7th gen i7, 8gb ram, and 256 gb ssd (sold on B&H)
$971 option has 8th gen i7, 16gb ram, and 512gb ssd (this version is on amazon and you’ll have to pay taxes so it comes up to $1050)
Hey Cristian, thanks so much for that, I think this is the one http://amzn.to/2A6U7Ib. Under 3lbs wow, thanks for posting this :)
Let me know what other questions you have about anything in engineering, and I can help you out. here's our FB group if you want in on that https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/ cheers!
Hello, I'm a engineering student, more specifically, I'm studying programming
From now, I'm just doing the basics, as C++ and C#, but years after I'll get into deeper things as 3D modelling; I also wanted to get into videos editing (I'll try After Effects) instead of gaming
So which laptop would you recommend me?, one of the mentioned or any other that you now?, I don't really care a cool looking thing nor the size, I just want to work properly without any lag and be able to save many works
I'm looking forward your answer, and thanks for making that video
Hey Kenji, thanks for watching and commenting. If you want to get into Ae, Adobe Aftereffects, you definitely need a beast of a machine. Powerful CPU, lots of RAM, and it won't hurt to hvae a good GPU / video card too. I would look at Asus gaming laptops for sure. I hope this helps. :)
Hey Aaron, I made this video just for that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfOLBbC-zqQ&t=80s it's hooowwww to choose a laptop, what specs and things to look for, etc. It's exactly what you need. Let me know what other questions you have, and pls join the 1% FB group so I can introduce you to the tribe https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/
Hey Derek, thanks again for watching and commenting. Asus is my #1 fav laptop brand for sure. I think the touch screen will be good for you. This is a good choice.
Are you at LSU? Here is The 1% Engineer Kit if you'd like that http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn and definitely join the 1% FB group so you can meet the community https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/ Cheers happy thanksgiving!
hi jake, I'm a mechanical engineering student and planning to do matlab ,ansys,solidworks autocad 2d etc stuff like that but I really like macbooks so can we run these softwares in macbook? please reply,nice video btw.
Hey Ravi, thanks for watching and for leaving a comment. Macbooks will be fine, just make sure you get a pretty powerful one. As a mechanical engineer, you will have to use Solidworks, which is the software program that will use the most processing power for your laptop. Sorry for delay. Let me know what else I can help you with k? If you want The 1% Engineer Kit, you can get that here http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn Cheers!
Hey David thanks man, I would say a 13" Asus or Acer, sorry I'm on the road right now and cannot provide links :) Here's the 1% Engineer kit tho https://us15.admin.mailchimp.com/lists/designer/?id=20717 along with the FB group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/
Hey Shashikant, thanks for watching and for commenting. ME students should get something a littttllleee more robust than the average student, bc you will have to use solidworks. As a 3D rendering program, it takes more CPU / GPU processing power, so if any field can justify a 15" tank laptop, its you. Let me know if you have other questions k, and here's The 1% Engineer kit http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn
Hey Banyar, nice tip man. Love that. Let me know where you are on your engineering journey, what questions you have still, and I can make a video for you k. Also, here's The 1% Engineer Kit k http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn it's a bunch of ebooks and resume templates for your success
I’m in the market to buy a new laptop for school. I’m a M.E junior and will be doing some CAD with it but I want something light to carry around in school. I was looking at the HP Spectre X360 13.3” with intel UHD graphics 620 or the Spectre X360 15.6” with NVIDIA GeForce MX150. But I would prefer the 13.3” option better . What would you recommend?
Heyyyy Alejandro, sorry for delay.Yeah you should go with a 13" for sure. Make sure you get a full video card version, somethign that does say NVIDIA because as an ME, you will have to do solidworks stuff. This is the most graphically intensive software of all engineers. Let me know how else I can help you ok? Also, here the 1% FB mastermind group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/ and you can get The 1% Engineer kit here http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn cheers!
Nice nice I'm actually making another one of these bc it turned out so well. maybe that'll make the cut. If you want the 1% Engineer kit, you can get that here k free, a bunch of ebooks http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn
Hi , Jake ! I have ordered lenovo ThinkPad p51 in the shop receintly . I ve not bought it yet.
I need it for CAD programs specificlly for SolidWorks . What do you think about that ? Is this laptop good enough for this goal ?
Hey Gideon! thanks for watching and commenting. Yeah I think the ThinkPad P51 works, but make sure you get the one with the Quadro video card and plenty of RAM. Of all engineering students, MEs using Solidworks need the most powerful computer. 3D modeling takes more CPU and processing power than anything else, more than CAD, etc.
Let me know what other questions you have k, and how I can help you. You can get my 1% Engineer kit here http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn cheers!
Heyyyy Jaishant, yeah the Dell 5577 is good, esp with i7 and if you can get a SSD in there too, awesome. Let me know what other questions / concerns you have about engineering sir, and I can help you out w those!! Thanks!
Hello Jake! Really good video, I'm subscribing!
I'm an industrial designer student, possibly mechanical engineer in the future, and I work heavily with Inventor Solidworks and 3ds max. I already have a desktop pc, so I'd need a laptop mostly to move around work and keep my projects with me at college. Not sure if I'd need it for modeling but could be a possibility. My question is, what specs should I look into when purchasing my next laptop? Or which one would you recommend to me?
Heyyy Cindy, thanks for watching and for leaving the comment. Really appreciate the subscribe, cheers! Industrial design is a cool field, and so is ME. If you already have a desktop, I suggest something more portable like a surface. Like this http://amzn.to/2x96m5H otherwise, for you needing a laptop for solidworks, just look at CPU (i7 is better than i5), if its an SSD harddrive + regular harddrive, and if it actually has a videocard like a GeForce 1050i or otherwise it'll have on board graphics, so not as good. RAM is important too, look for DD4 rather than DD3 and more gb of total RAM.
Do you have The 1% Engineer Kit yet? I don't think so, it's a bunch of ebooks and resume templates to help you win http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn. Here's The 1% FB group too, I'd like to invite you https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/
There are way better picks than these here. I'm not saying the list is bad though. But for Engineering student you want to go hard on battery life too. Also the list could include 2 yoga devices since they will be becoming very competitive in the 8'th generation Intel processors.
Heyyyy thanks for watching, commenting, and thank you for the tips, appreciate that. And welcome to 1% Nation! I'm most likely doing another one of these for black friday bc its been such a popular video. So I'll keep all that in mind. Let me know where you are in your engineering journey, what questions / concerns / issue you may be having, and I can help you out with those! Cheers!
Hey Greg! This one? http://amzn.to/2yaKMyO, GeForce check, SSD check, i7 check, 16gig DD4 yeah this is a good machine man. Join the FB group boss so I can introduce you to the tribe! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/
Heyyy Greg, thanks for watching and for posting, and welcome to 1% Nation! If you want to going the community and get a bunch of free ebooks and resume templates, you can sign up here http://eepurl.com/cCh1jn I think your best best is the Asus 15" light gaming laptop which runs about $1050 here is the one http://amzn.to/2yaD4q5 Let me know what other questions you have man, and I can help you out or make a video k. I also run a FB group with 1% Nation, here https://www.facebook.com/groups/1percentengineer/
heyyy Michael yeah I like that one, this one right? http://amzn.to/2xkgacm. It's a gaming laptop so will be great for engineers, dedicated graphics card, etc. The 1050i card is great for sure. Let me know if you want the 1% Engineer kit man, it's a bunch of ebooks and resume templates you can get by joining my free engineering community http://bit.ly/2hAiytn cheers!
Nice video I can't believe you don't have way more likes and views, liked and subscribed
Now what's you recommendation? I'm studying engineer in sustainable development but I always get involved in mechatronic projects I need a laptop that can handle solid works and auto cad programs but don't get slow over time I was thinking in a MacBooks pro 15inch and maybe partition it to use windows so I can get best thing out of both worlds but it also way too expensive so...? I don't know what your recommendation would be I also don't want to be buying a laptop every 2 or so years :/
Heyy Adolfo, thank you so much :) Really appreicate you watching, commenting, and subbing :) It means a lot to me. I started 1% Engineer earlier this year, so it's really only been going on for 6-7 months and it's been a grind to 1k subs, my goal is 10k in 2018 and 100k in 2019 !!!
Great questions. MEs who will be using solidworks have the highest laptop requirements of all engineers. It's important for you to have more of a beast machine than something portable or budget. Look at gaming rigs. Look at laptops with i7 CPUs, dedicated graphics cards / GPUS (so not on board graphics) look for Nvidia card in the specs, and you should probably have an SSD as well.
I do not advise Macbooks for engineering students. Macs are stereotypically for creatives and artsy people who are not tech oriented, cannot troubleshoot, and would rather pay a lot more $$$ for convenience vs processing power. You can get a fast / powerful Mac, but it's incredibly more expensive to do so.
If you love Mac stuff, get it. But if you are not already in love, don't go down that road. I suggest you just get a tank 15" Asus gaming rig like this http://amzn.to/2y94kqg
You should join my community, sign up here http://bit.ly/2hAiytn and I'll email you the 1% Engineer kit (7 ebooks and 4 resume templates), and invite you to the 1% FB group!!! Cheers, ask away with any other questions ok!!! Cheers! -Jake

Hey Jake... I'm an aerospace engineering student and need a new laptop in a few weeks. I will be starting to do CAD this year and want a laptop that will last me for the next 4+ years. I do watch movies and play a few games on my laptop on occasion. Someone recommended the lenovo p51(budget isn't a huge issue) which is an absolute beast but seems quite heavy and in some ways too much. I'm a little partial to Lenovo right now because of their awesome student discount but I'm wondering what you would recommend for me.
Heyy David, sorry for the delay man! Aerospace is a great field and one that I'm veryyy into nowadays. I just looked at the specs for the laptop, i7, dedicated video card and 1TB storage, yeah it'll be great for you. Here's my amazon link if you wanna support me and 1% nation http://amzn.to/2jQkQF4
Heyyy Bryan, thanks for watching and commenting, and welcome now to 1% nation! I think you should look as surface's and smaller laptops that will be budget friendly. What type of engineering will you be doing? Let me know what other questions you have, and I can make a video about that stuff, cheers!
Heyyy again Rumeel, thanks for the reply. I'm a civil engineer too by the way, so definitely let me know any specific civil questions you have, or future concerns, whatever. Thanks so much for the good words. Feel free to connect on FB too - I can invite you to the 1% Engineer FB groups, cheers! https://www.facebook.com/JakeVoor
Jake Voorhees hello, well Im bearly starting my journey on my civil engineering major, and yeah i want something portable for everyday carry, and thanks man glad to have found your channel, ive been looking through your vids and a lot of great content! Keep up the vids CHEERS!
heyyyy Rumeel, thanks for watching and thanks for leaving a comment. Welcome now to 1% Nation!! Let me know where you are on your engineering journey, what other questions you may have, and I can make a video about that.
I think a surface is a good option, especially if you have to walk long distances or know you will be using your laptop for portable reasons often. If you are a mechanical engineer and will be using solidworks a lot, I may not recommend a surface as you will need a more beefy laptop that has a dedicated graphics card for solidworks. Let me know your situation so I can help you more, thanks!
Hey tio. Como te va con tu HP SPECTRE X360? Yo empiezo en 2 años el máster en Ingenieria Ambiental y he de utilizar mucho MATLAB y me han dicho que he de hacer muchos trabajos y proyectos con el ordenador. He estado mirando el Macbook Pro 13" y el HP SPECTRE. Dime tu opinión porfavor.
Heyyy Diego, thanks for watching, and thanks for commenting brother. Welcome to 1% Nation! Matlap is a script and text based program, with no really crazy 3D processing. You can graph 3D images but it's nothing compared to a Solidworks environment. I would therefore get something that fits your needs. If you are on a budget, or have a big campus, I do encourage a portable smaller 13" Asus or Hp to most students. If you can afford it and may be less portable, like you just want a beast fast computer, get a 15" asus with a built in graphics card (look for things like Nvidia Geforce XXXX card (the 1050 is popular right now).
Do let me know what other questions you have, and I can help you out. Where are you studying engineering? Cheers!
I am about to be a freshman (medstudent). I am having it very hard choosing laptop since I want one that can be occasionally used for gaming but mostly studying/videos. But lastly but importantly I want it to last long. The ones I've been looking at atm is *Asus ZenBook UX430UQ 14", it has 940MX, i5, 8gb ram and 256 gb ssd. *ASUS vivobook 15,6", i7-6500U, GTX960m, 8 gb ram, 256 ssd. And lastly *Lenovo Ideapad 14" i7, 8gb ram dd4, 256ssd, 940mx. Which one would you recommend?
What attracts me to the Zenbook mostly is the looks. It looks modern, smooth and seems like a nice computer you can chill throughout the years.
Wow Rami, sorry I missed this! Are you still looking for a laptop? Yeah I like the Zenbook too, I think this is the right one. Good call, that 256gb SSD will be awesome, here's the link to support 1% Nation :) ty sir! http://amzn.to/2xGPBkQ
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
