Triple French Braid Double Waterfall Ponytail

Triple French Braid Double Waterfall Ponytail is a more casual version of the original Triple French Braid Double Waterfall, whew!

The original style became such a favorite that I felt like it needed an updated version, one suited more for every day wear. This style feels more sporty and reminds me of something that would be great while playing sports, working out at the gym, hanging out outside or even just running around town. Really, it could go anywhere so let’s get into the tutorial!


Get the Triple French Braid Double Waterfall Ponytail:
  1. Part the hair into three sections, left side, middle (crown), right side.
  2. Pin down the side sections and start with the middle piece.
  3. Pull up a front piece in the middle section and divide this into three strands.
  4. Do one stitch of a regular braid, left over middle, right over middle.
  5. Now when you start to begin the french braid, instead of crossing the usual strand over the middle, drop it down like a waterfall braid, and pull in a section of hair behind that strand and cross it over as usual.
  6. Repeat step five with the opposite side. I’m already confused, are you sure you don’t just want to watch the video?
  7. Now, repeat steps five and six, creating a double sided waterfall braid until you reach the back of the crown.
  8. Secure the braid down with a hair pin.
  9. Now, take a section of hair on the left side of the head and begin a regular french braid pulling in the strands that were left out of the first braid.
  10. Secure this braid next to the first braid at the back of the crown.
  11. Repeat steps 9 and 10 creating a braid on the right side of the head.
  12. Now, toss the rest of your hair into a high ponytail.
  13. Divide the ponytail into three sections and braid each one down into a regular braid.
  14. Now braid the three braids together to create one big braid.


I hope you love this one as much as the first!
