I wanted to publish this tutorial now for a few weeks and have postponed it again and again. I love this look because it has a softer feel than typical Dutch braids. One of my favorite things about hair is that you can easily change a style from casual to chic with a few small improvements. Although this style may seem complicated, it’s actually so easy to understand how to become a Dutch braid … I just got another idea for a new tutorial. I write that down and let’s go into the steps for this one (:
Double Dutch Braids Supplies:
- paddle brush
- 2 transparent hair elastic
- 3-4 hair clips
- Medium hairspray
Double Dutch Braids Instructions:
- Step 1 / Begin brushing the hair to remove all entanglements and then make a midsection with a ratchet comb.
- Step 2 / Continue over the back of the head, divide the hair into two equal parts and tie off the right part.
- Step 3 / Pick up a section of hair to the left of the hairline and divide into three equal parts.
- Step 4 / Cross the right side strand under the middle and then the left side strand under the middle to start the braid. The side strands under the middle intersect alternately between the left and the right side and begin to integrate hair into the braid.
- Step 5 / Pass the braid along the left side of the head and hold it as close as possible to the line until all the hair has pulled in. Then braid the rest of the section to the ends and tie it off an elastic band.
- Step 6 / Lower the hair on the right side and create a second Dutch braid, keeping it close to the middle part line and tie the ends with an elastic band.
- Step 7 / Go back over both braids and pull the edges so that they touch in the middle.
- Step 8 / Slide the hairpins into the center of the braid to hold the braids together. Then tie the two ends together with the same elastic band.
- Step 9 / Spray the style with hairspray and flatten any overflights.
