I’ve been playing around with triple braids lately. You know, where you braid three sections of hair and then braid those together–a braid within a braid, if you will
The thing is, my hair isn’t long enough to really pull it off. Personally, I think it looks best if you have long, long hair, and mine’s only long. Still, I think I found a way to make it work.
Enter the triple Dutch braid. By Dutch braiding the center braid, there’s a little more interest at the top of my head and less on the rest of the style. Here’s how to copy this look:
Starting at the crown of your hair, Dutch braid the middle section of your hair. If you’re not familiar with Dutch braiding, it’s basically an inverted French braid. Instead of pulling the outside strands over the middle one, you pull them under.
Next, braid the outside sections of your hair. Secure with elastics and gently tug on them to fatten ’em up.
Finally, take all three braids and, you guessed it, braid them together as you normally would. That’s it! At this point, you could leave it as-is, or you could wrap a section of hair around the elastic to hide it. Or, you could also stick a pretty bow at the end…
Have you guys ever tried triple braids? And is there a style you’d like me to show you next time?
