Double Dutch Headband Braids

After trying out a double dutch braided bun with my sister Sarah I thought it would be fun to do it on myself somehow. This hairstyle takes the traditional dutch braidย along the hairline to the next level. It’s a double-whammy, the twin sisters. It’s achieved the same way except with the top braid beginning farther back on the noggin’. Here are the steps to completing the look:

1 / Begin by parting your hair in a deep side part.
2 / Next separate the hair into two front halves by drawing a line from the middle of your part down to your right ear.
3 / Separate the front hair with a clip
4 / Begin braiding the back portion into a dutch braid only pulling in hair from the furthest part of your head.
5 / Once the braid reaches the ear, secure it with an hair pin.
6 / Release the front pinned section and repeat steps four and five.
7 / Loose the braids by tugging out the sides and hide the part that separates them.
8 / Finish with a spritz of hairspray.

    So pretty! I really want to try this. I really suck at braiding my hair so it probably will take a lot of practice, but thanks so much for the tutorial!
