The spring season is always good time to start changing your beauty routines, from your skin care to trying out new hairstyles. For all of you braid lovers who always love trying out new braided hairstyles, Fab Fashion Fix brings new tutorial.
After our previous tutorials where you could in a few steps learn how to do “fishtail braid“, “waterfall braid“, “twist around side braid“, “braided headband” and “Chinese staircase braid”, this time it`s time to do the Dutch braid.
We can also call it an inverted French braid. By following these easy steps and tips, you can master the Dutch braid right now, today. So take note on these tips:
1. The first thing you should do is prepare your hair. You can use damp or dry hair for a dutch braid, but make sure that your hair is well brushed. Remove all tangles, and if you have many fly-away hairs use a spray bottle to slightly dampen it with water.
2. Then gather your hair. Grab a piece of hair from the top of your head. If you want to include your bangs, start this section directly above your forehead. Otherwise, pick up a section from the very top of your head. Gather a piece ranging from 3-5 inches wide, and 1 inch thick.
3. Start working you hair by crossing the right strand under the center strand. Then cross the left strand under the center strand.
4. Repeat that pattern and cross the right strand, then the left strand, under the center strand.
5. Cross the right strand under the center, and pick up another small section from the right side of your head.
6. Cross the left strand under the center, and pick up another small section from the left side of your head.
7. Add more hair to your braid by picking up small strands every time you cross pieces under the center strand.
8. Continue your dutch braid to the nape of your neck.
9. Finish your braid with a regular braid (going under rather than over) when you run out of hair to add.
10. Tie off your braid with an elastic band and you are finished.
