Dutch Braids

Dutch braids are a unique hairstyle that features three strands of hair. The style is created by alternately weaving the strands under and over each other. The final result is an eye-catching braid that rises above the scalp, giving a V-shape appearance. The Dutch Braid is an excellent option for women with lots of hair and want to keep it out of their face. There’s nothing worse than pesky flyaways stealing the show!

Here’s how to create the ultimate Dutch Braid:

  1. Start by dividing your hair into three parts.
  2. Begin braiding normally, but instead of crossing the middle strand over the outside strands, cross it under the outside strands.
  3. As you braid, start to add hair to the outside strands as you go.
  4. Continue braiding until you reach the nape of your neck, and then braid to the end of your hair.
  5. Secure the braid with an elastic band.

French Braids

The French Braid is a braiding technique that involves three strands of hair. The style is created by weaving the strands of hair together, starting at the crown of the head and working towards the nape of the neck. The French Braid is a classic option that works well for nearly any occasion!

Here is how to rock the French Braid with Parisian flair:

  1. Begin by brushing your hair to eliminate any tangles.
  2. Take a section of hair at the crown of your head and separate it into three equal parts.
  3. Begin braiding, crossing the right section over the middle section and then the left section over the middle section.
  4. As you braid down your head, add a section of hair to each strand before crossing it over the middle.
  5. Keep braiding until you reach the nape of your neck, and then braid to the end of your hair.
  6. Secure the braid with an elastic band.
