Today’s tutorial is a hairstyle that every girl should know how to do. It’s perfect for all year round and never goes out of style. If you have already mastered and love the french braid then the next braid on your list should be the dutch braid.
This is a look I wear all the time but have never shared a stand alone tutorial for it. I love hearing how my tutorials have taught you different styles and techniques so I hope you take that away from this video as well. Try it out and share it with your friends; I’m sure they’ll love it if you do. Thanks so much for reading! xo, Missy
Dutch Side Braid Supplies:
Clear elastic band
Dutch Side Braid Instructions:
Step 1 / Begin by parting the hair on the right side.
Step 2 / Divide out a section of hair to frame the face.
Step 3 / Pick up a section on the left side of the part and divide this into three pieces for the braid.
Step 4 / Start the dutch braid by crossing the right strand under the middle strand. Then cross the left strand under the middle strand.
Step 5 / Now cross the right strand under the middle, pick up a new section and cross it under and into the middle.
Step 6 / Then cross the left strand under the middle, pick up a new section and cross it under and into the middle strand.
Step 7 / Repeat those steps, crossing the side strands under the middle strand while bringing new sections into the braid, keeping the braid along the left side of the head.
Step 8 / Once all of the hair from along the part line is brought into the braid, then start adding in hair from the right side of the part, sweeping it around the back of the head adding it into the braid.
Step 9 / Then once the braid reaches the nape of the neck, and all of the hair is brought into the braid, then continue braiding the section a little further down and tie off the end of the braid with an elastic band.
Step 10 / Now go back over the braid, pulling on the edges to make the braid wider and more full.
Step 11 / Then set the style in place with a medium or firm hold hairspray.
*Tip: If little pieces fall out of the braid, at the back of the head, use bobby pins to pin them into the back of the braid.
Today’s tutorial is a hairstyle I’ve been personally trying to master.
Whenever I did it, the braid would always end up a little bit lopsided somehow. I think I finally figured out a trick to help it lay more smoothly against the head though.
It’s such a great hairstyle when you want to wear your hair down but keep the front pieces from falling in your eyes. It’s especially perfect when you’re growing out bangs. I’ve been tempted to cut a fringe lately so it’s something I randomly think about (:
Today’s tutorial is three, easy hairstyles that include a half up, low bun, and ponytail. The concept behind these styles is one of my favorites because the first one leads into the second and third styles. Basically you have to do the first one to do the second and third so it’s perfect for whatever you’ve got planned for that day. Quick transition from down to up. What do you think?!
If you’re a fan of the woven braid, then you’re going to love today’s tutorial. I used the same technique for this half updo and it makes creating these braids so much easier to do than other tutorials I’ve seen.
I’ve always been too afraid to try out any braid that has more than 4 sections but with this technique you’re basically focusing on three strands at the beginning instead of 5 so it’s a lot easier to see and control what you’re doing.
I hope the tutorial is easy to understand and that you give it a try. As always, be sure to let me know what you think! xo, Missy
