This tripel braided half-up hairstyle is perfect if you are not a great braider, as you only have to do a basic 3 strand and then connect them with elastics! You can do more or fewer layers of braids, a single or a double braid would look beautiful as well!

If the ladder braid is above your braiding level right now, then try out this double braided half-up. It gives off the same vibe, but I would say this is a whole lot easier to do, so give it a try!

 

If you want to go a different direction you can give a waterfall braid a try! Here are 4 different versions I have done tutorials on and they look stunning!! There is one for all braiding level so if you are not that good at braiding, you can still do it!
