Triple Twist Headband

Start by making a part from ear to ear. Pull the remaining hair into a ponytail to keep it out of the way.

Then make you part down whichever side you normally part on. Next, make diagonal parts to divide each side into thirds. Secure them with clips to keep them separate.

French twist each section all the way down (to make a french twist, take a small piece near the front of the section, and divide it in two. Twist each strand one direction while twisting one section over the other in the OPPOSITE direction. Each time you cross one, add hair to it- but only take hair from one side- this will make it pop out.)

Bring all the twisted sections under the ponytail and tie them together with an elastic.

Curl the remaining hair. Depending on the type of curl I am going for, I use different methods. This time, I used a curl defining spray all over (by Bed Head) and WRAPPED the hair around the outside of a curling iron. Hold the end CAREFULLY so you don't burn yourself!

Super cute! I have tried but have not been able to successfully master this twist braid.

That looks really cute, but it also looks hard and like it would take a pretty long time. I really don't have to worry right now though.... Kimmy's still bald.

Hi! I found your blog through a friend's sisters, and the from another blog and possibly another one. Anyway! I found your blog :] and I really like all the fun clips you make and hair styles you try! Fabulous!
I'd like to add you to my blog list.
I have a almost 6 month old, but I've done lots of these kinds of hair styles on my nieces and little sister couple years ago. I love playing with hair!
Thanks for sharing your ideas!
