I was recently inspired by these double dutch braids and thought it’d be fun to share four different ways to style them. This is such a fun Summer hairstyle so let me know which version is your favorite!
Start by parting the hair down the center and clip down the hair on the left side.
Create a diagonal part from the center of the forehead on the right side, creating a triangle shaped section, and clip down the bottom hair to keep it out of the way.
Pick up a small piece of hair in this triangle section and divide it into three pieces for the braid.
Begin a dutch braid by crossing the right strand under the middle, then crossing the left strand under the middle strand.
Then cross the right strand under the middle strand, pick up a new section and cross it under the middle strand as well.
Now cross the left strand under the middle strand, pick up a new section of hair and cross it under the middle strand like before.
Repeat those steps continuing the braid until reaching the crown of the head.
Now stop adding new sections into the braid and continue braiding the section before sliding a bobby pin over the end so it doesn’t unravel.
Let down the right section of hair and repeat the same steps creating a second triangle dutch braid.
Once both braids are done, take the end of the right braid and remove the bobby pins.
Wrap a clear elastic down the section then flip the hair around to form a loop, grabbing the base of the bun with the left hand and wrap the elastic over the hair a second time to form a bun.
Then loop the ends back towards the bun and tuck them into the elastic.
Pull on the edges of the bun to make it bigger and use bobby pins to pin any pieces sticking out.
Then repeat those steps with the end of the left braid, creating a second bun.
Divide the hair into two sections by creating a part line down the back of the head.
Take the right section of hair, brush it up towards the crown of the head where the braids end.
Create the same buns as before, sliding the elastic part way down the hair, then flip the ends up towards the top of the head, grab the base with the left hand, then wrap the elastic over the hair to form the bun.
Pin down any pieces that are sticking out with bobby pins.
Repeat those steps with the hair on the left side.
Then set the style with hairspray and smooth down any flyaways.
Single High Bun:
Combine all of the hair together at the top of the head.
Then wrap it once with a hair band and twist the hair band over the right hand before removing the bobby pins from the ends of the braids.
Spread the ponytail around the hair band and then wrap the hair band over it to form the base of the bun.
Pull on the edges to make the bun bigger.
Take the ends left sticking out and bring thm around to the front of the bun.
Loop them back towards the bun and tuck them into the hair band.
Then use bobby pins to pin down any sections sticking out and set the style with hairspray.
Half Up Bun:
Combine the ends of the braids, twisting them together.
Wrap the twist clock-wise at the crown of the head.
Bring the ends through the middle of the twist.
Continue twisting the ends around the bun, tucking them underneath.
Wrap a clear elastic over the bun to hold it in place.
Spray the style with hairspray and smooth down any flyaways.
Hey everyone! Today’s tutorial is one that I’ve seen popping up everywhere. It’s kind of the “braid of the moment” so I wanted to share my own tutorial for this cool hairstyle. It’s a spin on the traditional infinity braid and creates a cool “feathered” or “waterfall” pattern.
Make sure to give it a try if you love a challenge and let me know what you think of the tutorial in the comments below! Thanks so much for watching! xo, Missy
Step 1 / Begin by dividing out a small section of hair at the back of the head. This is going to be the ‘wrapping piece’.
Step 2 / Now divide out another section on the right side. This is going to be the ‘right section’.
Step 3 / With the wrapping piece, wrap the section clock-wise around the right section of hair.
Step 4 / Now pick up a new section of hair on the left side. This is going to be the ‘left section’.
Step 5 / Take the wrapping piece and wrap this counter clock-wise around the left section.
Step 6 / Now pick up a new section of hair and add it into the right section.
Step 7 / Then wrap the ‘wrapping piece’ clock-wise around the right section.
Step 8 / Pick up a new section of hair and add it into the left section.
Step 9 / Wrap the left section counter clock wise with the wrapping piece.
Step 10 / Now add a new section of hair into the right section and wrap it clock-wise with the wrapping piece.
Step 11 / Then add a new section into the left section and wrap it counter clock-wise with the wrapping piece.
So the left and right sections are always staying in the same place and the wrapping piece is always in between the two sections.
As you’re braiding, make sure to keep the wrapping piece really right around the two sections to avoid getting any gaps in the braid. If the middle wrapping piece starts to feel too thin or short, pick up a new section of hair from underneath and add it in.
Step 12 / Continue repeating those steps until hair is brought in from the top of the ears.
Now reverse the braid and start taking small sections out instead of adding them in.
Step 13 / Divide off a small piece of hair from the right section and then wrap it with the wrapping piece, working in the same direction as before.
Step 14 / Now divide off a small piece from the left section, and then wrap the left section counter clock-wise with the wrapping piece.
Step 15 / Repeat those steps, taking out small pieces of hair from each section, continuing to wrap them in the infinity pattern, until the side sections become too small to split.
Step 16 / Now take a clear elastic band and wrap it over the bottom of the braid to hold it in place.
Excited to finally be sharing a makeup tutorial with you! I’ve had so many requests to share more of these so I hope you enjoy it.
This is definitely a bold look but you can get a more wearable look using the same techniques and neutral tones. I think this is such a fun look for Summer and can’t wait for the weather to finally start heating up!
