Double Dutch Braids

This ain’t your average summer camp braid.  Double dutch braids have been a hit recently, especially among celebrities and beauty bloggers.  

Perfect for your workout or girls night, dutch braids can be easily achieved with just a couple of tools.  Loosen the braids for a more Bohemian look or keep them tight for a polished hairstyle.

Below is a full step-by-step tutorial by Luxy Hair on how to get Double Dutch Braids.  But first, here are just a few things you need to know.

Things you will need:

  • Brush
  • Sectioning comb
  • Clear or black elastic (depending on hair color)

Tips on how to get the look:

  • This look works best with 2nd or 3rd day hair.
  • Brush your hair to remove any tangles and your hair will be much easier to braid.
  • Use a sectioning comb to part your hair in the middle of your head.
  • Dutch braid as tight as possible, then you can always go back and loosen the braids for a ‘messy’ look.
