We present a method for calculating explicit expressions of the shear three-point function for various cosmological models. The method is applied here to the one-halo model in the case of power law density profiles for which results are detailed. The three-point functions are found to reproduce to a large extent patterns in the shear correlations obtained in numerical simulations and may serve as a guideline to implement optimized methods for detecting the shear three-point function. In principle, the general method presented here can also be applied for other models of matter correlation.
