Triple Flip Combo | Pull Through Braid

Inspiration for this braid came from our friend @HudaBeauty on Instagram.  To see your own photo recreation of this style featured in our app, feel free to tag your photos on IG using #CGHTripleFlipCombo

Items Needed: brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 10 small hair elastics, hairspray {if desired}

Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Step-By-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by parting the hair. (Kamri prefers slightly off center)
  2. Starting at the back of the head and section the hair in three sections.  Two side sections (from front to just behind the ear) and one middle.  The back/middle section should be bigger than your sides.  (see video for details)
  3. Working with the middle section, smooth the hair with fingers or comb and secure with a small elastic.  The elastic should be loose and sit at the middle of the neck.
  4. Next, create a hole just above the elastic and flip the ponytail through & under.  (see video for details)
  5. Take one of your side sections and repeat steps 3-4.
  6. Now repeat on the other side section.  You should now have 3 sections of hair that you created a flip under ponytail.
  7. Next, take one of your side pieces and tuck it into your middle flip under ponytail.  You will tuck and pull through the center.  (see video for details)
  8. Repeat with other side section.
  9. At this point you will go back and pull/loosen your flips to create a full/dynamic ponytail with lots of texture. (watch how I do this on the video)
  10. When your happy with your flip under, you should have two small ponytail ends and one bigger.  This is perfect to begin a pull through braid!
  11. Bring the two small sections of hair from behind, wrap around the front & secure with a small elastic.
  12. Now continue creating your pull through by dividing the back section in half, wrap around the front and secure with a small elastic.  Repeat this process all the way down the hair.
  13. Last but not least, go back and pancake the pull through sections to create a fluffy beautiful braid! (see video for details on how to pancake the pull through)
