Today’s post is about one simple dutch braid, but two great hairstyles you can do with it. If you’re regularly visiting my blog I’m sure you’ve seen the dutch braid ending in a ponytail before. In this post I’ll show you how I do the dutch braid.
Braided hairstyles are my favorite, because I think the combination of braids and curls are just great and look even better than braids in straight hair. Moreover it’s a bit easier for us to braid our hair as the curls stay within the braid pretty well and your braid doesn’t need to be perfect. These two hairstyles won’t take longer than 5 minutes!
- 1-2 hair ties
- some bobby pins
How to dutch braid curly hair:
The most important thing to know about a dutch braid is that instead of crossing the three sections across each other you cross them underneath each other. If you’ve never done a dutch braid before you’ll need a little time to get used to cross underneath, but other than that it’s not more difficult than french braiding. Of course you can also do these hairstyles with a french braid!
These 8 steps are the same, whether you decide to pull your curls back into a ponytail or you like to wear half of your curls down. After choosing which hairstyle you’d like to go for, you can finish by following the last step:
Hairstyle 1: Half dutch braid, half down:
