Get the Look: Sideswept Dutch Braid

Things you need:

  • ¼” Curling Iron
  • Brush
  • Bobbi pins

 Tips on how to get the look

  • After making a deep side part, when you continue the part down the back of your head, check to make sure the part is off-center and in line with your part on the top of the head
  • When securing your braid, criss cross two bobbi pins at the end of the braid to help stabilize the braid
  • After creating the braid and applying hairspray, gently brush the crown and right section of hair to smooth fly aways

Step-by-step instructions:

#1 Curl hair in large sections

#2 Create deep side part and continue part down the back of head

#3 Clip right side section  of hair out of the way

#4 On left side, grab a small, triangular section of hair

#5 Split into 3 smaller sections

#6 Create a Dutch braid and continually pull in small sections until the Dutch braid meets the nape of your neck

#7 After passing the nape, finish with a standard braid and secure the end with two bobbi pins

#8 Unclip hair on right side then use hairspray to smooth hair on both sides

#9 Sweep hair over right shoulder and wrap braid around right side of head, pinning at the crown with bobbi pins
