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 (:
