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.
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!
If you need a sizing chart for Lilla Rose, here you go! Just pull your hair back into a ponytail and test the thickness. Don’t worry if you get the wrong size, Lilla Rose offers amazing exchanges and refunds!
I’d love to know if you try this hairstyle out! Leave me a comment and tell me how it went!
