Triple Braid

THE LOOK

This easy braid looks so much more complicated than it really is. It’s simply three braids woven together to form a single braid. The extra thickness you get from this style will give your hair a lustrous look. It’s possible to do this braid in your own hair, though it’s easier with some assistance, especially for long hair.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL

Easy

IDEAL HAIR LENGTH

Long

HAIR EXTENSIONS NEEDED?

This style can be achieved in medium-length hair with extensions.

ASSISTANCE NEEDED?

No

ACCESSORIES

This braid doesn’t need much adornment, though you could wear flowers in your hair for a bohemian feel.

TRY THIS

You can do this style as a side braid, or try fishtail braids for a beautiful and intricate triple braid. Alternatively, braid only one section out of three to add a pretty detail.

HOW TO GET IT TRIPLE BRAID

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Brush
  • 4 hair elastics

1). Brush your hair to remove any knots and split your hair into three equal sections.

2–3). Braid each section into a basic braid so that you end up with three equal braids. Secure the end of each with an elastic.

4). Braid the three braids together, again using the basic braid technique.

5). Secure the ends together with an elastic. That’s it!

TOP TIP : Secure each braid with small, clear elastics so that you can’t see them. Alternatively, you can remove the elastics from the ends of each braid after you’ve weaved them together.
