5 Half Up Dutch Braid Hairstyles

Who else can’t believe it’s already August? Where did the summer go?!

I wanted to share a bunch of different half up styles with dutch braids because they are one of my very favorite braids. School is just around the corner so hopefully these will give you some inspiration for some back-to-school hairstyles.

If you’re lucky enough to have a few more weeks of summer break then maybe they’ll just give you more summer hair vibes. Which one do you love the most? Let me know in the comments!

Thank you so much for watching! xoxo, Missy
