*First of all, I apologize about the low quality pictures. For some reason they came out a little weird, but I really loved the out come of the braids! So that is why I am still going to use them! Now onto the post!*
I was browsing Pinterest a week or so ago and came across this super cute braided hair do using two dutch braids. Now keep in mind, over the summer I fell in love with the double dutch braid look, so of course I wanted to try this right away. I came up with these three cute and super easy hair styles inspired by the original pin, and all using the same two dutch braids! I hope you guys enjoy these three mini tutorials as much as I do!
One last thing! If you guys haven’t noticed, I’ve been really into trying new and creative hairstyles lately! So expect more in the coming months. Also, feel free to share your recreations with me! All of my social media links are at the top of the page. I would love to see what you guys create using my tutorials. You can go to the hair section of my blog for all of my tutorials, or even check out my hair board on Pinterest, which I think is more fun to look at haha. You can find it here!
HALF UP DOUBLE DUTCH BRAIDS
This is the simplest of them all…
- Separate your hair into two sections.
- Dutch braid both of the sections until you reach the tops of your ears, then continue braiding regularly (dutch braid tutorial here). Make sure to stop adding hair into your braids around your ears so that there is a good amount of hair left down!
- Pull apart your braids for added volume!
And you’re done! I think this is so simple and also so cute! I’ve never seen anyone wear their hair like this, but I am really digging it. Plus its probably one of the easiest ways to have your hair down, out of your face, and looking cute all at the same time.
DOUBLE DUTCH HALF UP HALO BRAIDS
- You are going to start with the same two dutch braids (dutch braid tutorial here). Again, remember to stop adding hair when you reach the tops of your ears, and continue braiding regularly the rest of the way down.
- Then you are going to cross the two braids to create an X in the back of your head. Shown below.
- Next, take each braid and pin it on the crown of your head. Also, shown below.
4. Make sure to hide the ends of the braids underneath each other or underneath the beginnings/sides of your braids if your hair is not long enough for the braids to overlap in the middle. And you’re done!
While I was taking pictures for this hair do I changed it up a little from what I was originally planning on doing, and I have to say I’m really really loving the way this ended up!
DOUBLE DUTCH BRAIDED PONYTAIL
- Again, start with the same two braids.
- Gather all of your hair, including the two braid, into a low ponytail and secure with a hair tie.
- Once the ponytail is secure, undo the loose ends of the braids.
- You can stop here! Or for a more put together look, take a small piece of hair from the under side of the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic. Secure the small section with 1-3 bobby pins.
I hope you guys enjoyed this as much as I enjoyed creating it.
Thank you for reading & happy braiding!
Love, Hannah Lee
