Braid 3-Double Dutch Braids and Bun

Double Dutch Braids and Bun |

Braid 3-Double Dutch Braids and Bun is a spinoff from Double Dutch Headband Braids.

It is sleeker with a smoother connection and tossed into a chic bun at the bottom. I love these braids. I live for them. I could wear my hair braided along the top wrapped into a bun every day of the week!

If you are a pro braider and want to take your skillzzzz up a notch try out this double dutch braid. You will be singing praises when it works out; not to mention your arms will thank you once you finally get it right.


Here are some steps to achieving the style:

1 / Separate the hair into two vertical sections from your part down to the left ear.

2 / Take the front section and tie it off.

3 / With the back section begin a dutch braid.

4 / When you braid in the back strand cross it underneath the other two strands and clip it off. Then bring in a piece of hair to replace that strand.

*You will create an upside down waterfall braid to create a more seamless look between the two braids.

5 / When you have braided all the way down the head, tie the strand off so it doesn’t unravel.

6 / Now, taking the front section, braid this into a regular dutch braid.

7 / When the strands meet at the bottom of the first braid gather all  the hair into a ponytail.

8 / Tie off the hair with an elastic band.

9 / Take a section of the ponytail and wrap the strand back over the band and tuck it in so it creates a loop.

10 / Repeat step 9 for the rest of the ponytail until you  have created a donut bun.

11 / Finish with hairspray, smoothing down any flyaways; or if that was too darn complicated to understand there’s always the video (:

    Hi Melissa! I just discover your blog weeks ago and I have been reading. I found it really useful. I love your hair tutorials but unfortunately my hair is too short to try some of them. I do blogging too. Hope you can take a look sometime.
