Braid 1-Mohawk Dutch Braid is hands-down one of my all-time favorite hairstyles…ever and have done so many different versions of this look including:
and even made it the feature picture for my How to Braid video.
I can’t get enough! I love Dutch braids so much they will always be on serious repeat in my repertoire. I figured it was high time I show you one of my favorite versions, this Mohawk Dutch Braid, which I recently wore in my outfit post, Polka Dot Dress-Look 2!
Follow these steps to get the look or jump down to the video tutorial!
Step 1 / Start by brushing all the hair straight back.
Step 2 / Next divide out a section of hair, right at the forehead, from corner to corner.
Step 3 / Then take a strand directly behind this piece, that is half the size, on the left side.
Step 3 / Now take another strand directly behind this piece, half the size, on the right side.
Step 4 / Cross the strand on the left under the large middle strand.
Step 5 / Next, cross the strand on the right under the middle strand.
Step 6 / Cross the left strand under the middle and bring in a section of hair.
Step 7 / Cross the right strand under the middle and bring in a section of hair angling the braid so it is slightly off center.
Step 8 / Continue braiding the Dutch braid so it stays off center and curves around the ear and down to the left side of the nape of the neck.
Step 9 / Once the braid reaches the neck, finish in a regular style braid so it lays over the left shoulder.
Step 10 / Tie off the braid with an elastic band.
