Basically what you do is start with a half-up. Then you braid that down and put a hair tie on the end. Then you go and take a section from the left and right side of lose hair on the side and put it on top of the first braid then make another and tie the end. Then do the last step again- making sure you braid it over the last two sections. you end up with 3 braids.
if these instructions don't make sense let me know! i was just wondering if this had a name or it was a new style?
I'm going to try to upload some pictures...

I've been doing something like this for some time -- well, the braidover part. I do a French braid on each side of the head, with the next section of hair braided over the prior (holding it down). [In my case, this makes many braids overlapping at the scalp, though you seem to be ding only three. Another difference. :) Then when the two sides meet in the middle, I just French braid down.]

It's very secure. I'll try to post pictures tomorrow as well.

Never heard of a name for [anything like] it.
