This hairstyle is great because it transform a basic braid into something edgey and fun. Dutch braids are one of the easiest braids you will ever learn to do. They hold tighter… and last longer throughout the day than a regular french braid would. Wrapping a dutch braid into a quick updo makes it wearable for running errands during the day (which is how I wore it) or grabbing dinner at night. My favorite part is that it keeps the hair out of reach of little, baby hands, which is something I am always looking for in a cute hairstyle. I already know this hairstyle will be on constant rotation this season!

Dutch Mohawk Braid Updo Instructions:
- Step 1 / Begin by brushing the hair straight back, away from the forehead.
- Step 2 / Pick up a 2″ section of hair at the corner’s of the forehead.
- Step 3 / Twist this section together and pin it at the top of the head. Gently pinch and pull the hair to add a bit of volume in this top section.
- Step 4 / Pick up a 3″ section of hair behind the twist and divide it into three sections for the braid.
- Step 5 / Create a dutch braid by crossing the side strands underneath the middle section while incorporating hair into the braid.
- Step 6 / Once all the hair has been brought into the braid then continue the braid to the ends and tie it off with an elastic band.
- Step 7 / Wrap the end up towards the top of the head so it’s laying next to the beginning of the braid.
- Step 8 / Tuck the end of the braid underneath so it sits below the top, twisted section.
- Step 9 / Slide bobby pins horizontally along the braid to secure it in place.
- Step 10 / Spray the style with a firm-hold hairspray and smooth down the sides and edges of the braid to lay down any loose hairs or flyaways.
