I was in a wedding party recently, and I enlisted my friend to style my hair. And she just did a fabulous job. She curled my hair with a curling iron (copious amounts of hairspray were involved) and then did a waterfall braid starting from my left side. She started another from the right, and where the red flower clip is, is where the braid meets together and looks odd, but I conveniently needed a clip in my hair anyways. After about an hour the curls relaxed some, and after hours of dancing the curls and braid were still intact!
