A Twist On The Classic Three-Strand Braid

August 11, 2017   /   byRebecca Stice  / Categories :  Feeds

Do you remember getting all “fancy” with your dolls or My Little Pony figures when you were little? I always loved braiding the hair on mine because my hair was always shorter growing up. My favorite style was to braid three basic braids and then braid those together for a big, fancy complicated braided ‘do. Well, this summer braided style is kind of a simpler take on that—when my hair is longer I hope to fully recreate that My Little Pony braided magic!Step one: To create a bit more visual interest on top, start by twisting a section on either side of your head and tying them together in a small ponytail.

Step two: Pancake and pull apart your twists for a fuller/messier look.

Step three: Separate your hair into three sections.

Step four: Braid the middle section and tie off with an elastic.

Step five: Take all of your hair and make one large three-strand braid, using your braid in the middle as one of your three sections.

Step six: Tie it off with an elastic and pancake for a fuller look.

That’s it! It’s really quite a simple style to do that has a sort of random/interesting texture look to it that makes it seem more complicated than it is. I like the way the middle braid is sort of “hiding” in the final braided look. Cheers, Rebecca.
