The Dutch braid makes even fine hair appear a little thicker and is, therefore, one of the most popular braided hairstyles. We reveal how you can style the "Dutch Braid" step-by-step at home.
Braided hairstyles are great. Whether as an elegant look on special occasions, as a summer hairstyle to keep your mane out of your face on hot days, or as a last resort on bad hair days, braided hair just never goes out of style.
Best of all: The twisted braids and wreaths of hair don't just look great. They also usually look a lot more complicated than they actually are. Once you understand the technology and get the hang of it, the desired braided hairstyle succeeds straight away and is ready in a few minutes.
A particularly popular braided hairstyle on Instagram, Pinterest, and Co. is the Dutch braid, also known as "Dutch Braid". Here you can find out what distinguishes the lush braid and how you can easily re-style it at home.
The Dutch braid is - very similar to the French braid - braided close to the head. When braiding, you start as high up on your head as possible and work your way down. With this braiding technique, all hair can be kept out of the face without any hair clips or clips. The hairstyle fits even better if you part the hair in the middle and braid a Dutch braid on each side.
Unlike the French braid, the Dutch braid stands out more from the head. While the French braid is interwoven with the top hair, the Dutch braid looks like the braid is on top of the top hair.
If you pull the finished, braided Dutch braid a little apart at the end, it appears really lush and the mane overall more voluminous, even with fine hair.
You really don't have to be a braiding professional to recreate the Dutch braid. Anyone who has already mastered French braids is guaranteed to succeed with the Dutch Braids right away. Because the braiding technique actually only differs in one detail.
Here are the step-by-step instructions:
Tip: Have you understood the braiding technique? Then you can modify the Dutch braid as you wish. For example, try to start braiding on one side so that the Dutch braid is placed like a fringe of hair at the back of the head and ends on the shoulder.
Also great: twist in the finished braid and twist it into a bun. Simply secure the bun with a couple of bobby pins or a wide scrunchie hair band.
