Dutch Braid Bun

Dutch Braid

Hello! I’m back again with yet another braid tutorial. This one I love because it is something a little different. And it doesn’t take too much time, so it is something you can easily do when you are rushing to get ready, and it will look like it took you ages. It is a little more complicated, so I’m going to do my best to try and explain it!

STEP 1: I brushed all of my hair back, but you can leave your front or side bangs out. Then starting at your crown, take 3 strands of hair and start braiding outwards (a typical french braid is inwards). Now, just braid like you normally would, don’t take any extra hair with you. Do this for about 2 full braids through. I hope that makes sense, basically braid your hair under twice without taking in any extra hair.

STEP 2: Now, take in hair from the outside and bring it into the braid. You want to make sure to grab decent sized sections when doing this. The photo below is showing what I’m talking about, so I hope it makes sense and doesn’t look too ridiculous.

STEP 3: Just repeat steps 1 and 2 until you have a few inches left at the bottom of your hair shaft. You can easily go all the way down, I chose not to because I have too many layers at the end of my hair and I wouldn’t get the result I really wanted. You can also pull apart the braids at this stage as well.

STEP 4: Now, just twist you hair into a bun and secure with a hair tie. I also used a few bobby pins to further secure the bun. I then pulled out a few pieces of hair in the front of my hair to make it look more messy.
