Easy Dutch side braid hairstyle tutorial
This simple twist on a Dutch braid is a great hairstyle to keep your hair off your neck in summer. It also gets you another day’s mileage from your blow dry before you need to wash your hair again.
A Dutch braid is the reverse of a French braid, where instead of crossing your hair over each other, you bring them under. This leaves the braid on top so you can see the shape.

Step 1: Brush your hair – you want to remove any knots or tangles before you start to braid.
Step 2: Start on the right (or left if you prefer!) – I’ll explain as if you’re on the right, but pick whichever side you part your hair. Take a large section above your right ear and split into three.
Step 3: To make a Dutch braid, cross the right piece under the centre section. Then bring the left piece under the right.
Step 4: Next add more hair to each section as you braid. Try to add in even amounts on both sides so you keep the braid shape equal.
Step 5: Keep braiding, bringing the right section under the centre, and the left under the right. When you run out of hair to add in, bring your right hand around to the front and braid to the end of your hair.
Step 6: Secure the braid with a small clear elastic and then stretch out your braid.
