This triple braid hairstyle works for both women and girls! I tried it on our 9 year old daughter and loved how it turned out! She is trying to grow her bangs out (it feels like it’s been a year now with very little growth, but that’s beside the point!). This hairstyle worked great to braid her bangs and get them out of her face.

This hairstyle is very easy to do, and there is no french braiding involved! For those of you who only know how to do basic braids, this hairstyle will be perfect.

Supplies Needed: a brush,  3 small elastics, and a flexi clip. 

First you want to brush out the hair really well and remove all the tangles. We have struggled with tangles more this winter and lots of static in our hair. Use a water bottle to lightly mist it if needed.


Then you want to part the hair in the middle, and gather up a section of hair the length of your part. This helps keep the braid in the middle of the head as shown below.

Tripe Braid Hairstyle - step one is to braid two small braids on each side of hair.

Braid each side of the hair with two small braids and put an elastic in each braid. Don’t use the super thick elastics, make sure and use small ones like these so they won’t show up later.

Once you have the two side braids done, gather them into a regular braid going down your back. Just split your hair into three sections (include the small braids into each side section) and do a quick braid).

Once you have the braid done, flip it up and tuck the ends behind the braid and use a Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose to secure it. I’ll include a sizing chart below to help you figure out what size you need. We used a size large here, but could probably use the medium as well. Those are larger sizes for thicker hair.

The Flexi Clip holds up your hair all day long, and work well for children and for adult women! No headaches or pulling on your hair!

  1. Thanks for this! I passed the link along to my sister-in-law, her 8-year-old daughter has beautiful long thick hair and she’s always looking for pretty ways to do it up. I’ve bought flexis from you before and I recommended those to her too!

  2. Hey! I’m wondering what I’m doing wrong. I’ve tried and tried to use my flexi- clips but they always hurt, pull and my hair sometimes gets stuck between the beads and gets pulled out. I’ve seen the hairstyles you do with them and I’ve heard time and time again how they should not hurt or pull! So I must be doing something wrong. Sigh. Any words of advise?

    • I’m so sorry Ellie! I honestly haven’t heard this feedback before. I wonder if you have curly hair, and if that is making it get stuck? Do you put the pin firmly against your head, so it’s not pulling against your head?
