Get the look: 6 steps to a cinchy Dutch braid

 

 

Need a new summer ‘do? That’s why we’re bringing you an easy-peasy tutorial from our June/July issue.

 

Even knotting newbies can master this luxe circular Dutch braid. Prep strands with volumizing mousse before blow-drying, then make a deep side part over the middle of one eyebrow. Dust in texturizing powder at the roots. Now just…
 
  • Step1.jpg

    1. On the heavy side of your part, grab a 3-inch bit of hair and divide it into three small and equal sections.

  • Step2.jpg

    2. Alternate pulling each outer section under and toward the middle: Weave section 1 under 2, 3 under 1, 2 under 3.

  • Step3.jpg

    3. Repeat step 2, feeding in more hair from each outer side as you move along the hairline, pulling tight.

    4. At mid-ear level, pull locks up to the back of your head. Braid normally (as in, don’t add hair!). Secure end with tie.

  • Step5.jpg

    5. Repeat steps 1-4 on opposite side, creating a mirrored braid. Loosen both braids for a little bit of messy texture

  • Step6.jpg

    6. Twist both braids together to form a bun at the back of your head. Secure with pins, then mist all over with hairspray.
