How to do a Dutch braid

Here we have list a step by step guide to how to do a Dutch braid, Hope you love this article.

Start with hair that is neatly washed, dry, or wet.

You may do a Dutch braid on damp hair, but it needs to be brushed and free of any knots or tangles. If you have any flyaways, mist them gently with water or tame them with a serum or pomade-like smoothing substance. Wet hair braiding is a perfect way to curl your hair without using heat. Before taking the braid out, though, you will have to let your hair dry completely.

Brush your hair back straight, then pick it up apart from the hairline.

Comb your hair back straight so that there are no side or middle sections for you. To collect a portion from your front hairline, slip your thumbs through your hair.


The width of your forehead should span this segment.

You can make one big braid down the middle of your head with this process.

Alternatively, in a half-up, half-down ponytail around eyebrow or eye level, you can collect your hair.


Split the segment into three strands equal to each other.

Keep in your right hand the right strand, and in your left hand, the other two. Let the middle part drape over your middle finger, and with your pinkie, keep the left strand against your palm. This step will keep them distinct.

You’re going to start with your braid from the right side. If it is more convenient for you to start from the left, reverse all.

To anchor the Dutch braid, begin a standard braid.

Under the middle strand, cross the right strand, then cross the left strand under the new central strand. You must cross these two strands under rather than over as in a regular braid. If you don’t do that, it won’t turn out right with the Dutch braid.


Until crossing it under the middle one, apply a thin section of hair to the right strand.

From the right side of your hairline, collect a thin strand of hair and add it to the correct strand. Cross them under the middle strand by considering the two strands as one. To smooth down any stray hair, use your fingers to ensure that the braid is secure.

The thin strand should be a little lighter than the right strand to which you apply it.

Some individuals find it simpler first to cross the correct strand, then add the hair to it. Make sure that the hair that is added goes under the middle strand.


On the left side, repeat the process.

Collect from the left side of your hairline a thin strand of hair. Connect it to the left strand, then under the middle strand, cross it. Smooth out any stray hair and make sure the braid is secure.

Once again, first, you should cross the strand, then add hair to it. Make sure it goes underneath the middle strand.

Continue it until you hit the nape of your neck with the Dutch braid.

Before crossing them under the middle one, add thin strands of hair to the right and left strands. Keep the thin threads constant in size and ensure that you braid as tightly as you can comfortably. Later, you can still loosen up the braid. When you hit your neck’s nape, stop.


Finish off with a braid of the ordinary.

Take the remaining hair into the right, middle, and left strands, ensuring uniformly distributed. Finish off by crossing the right and left strands under the middle one with a regular braid. Keep your stitches smooth and tight. When you have around 2 inches (5.1 cm) on the left, or continue braiding down to the very end, you can tie the braid off. Carry it over one of your shoulders when the braid becomes too long to braid down your back.

To make it fuller, if desired, loosen the outer strands of the braid.

Starting at the end of your braid, pull the outer strands gently to loosen them up. Must up the fine hairs on your hairline as well for a more carefree look. However, please don’t get carried away; during the day, the braid will loosen on its own. Coil the braid in a bun at the nape of the neck for a romantic twist and protect it with bobby pins.
