Want to tame your messy beach hair? Try this Dutch braided updo.
Before and After
This is a great style to keep your messy beach hair up and off your neck on hot days. Of course it will also work in straight hair too, and you can wear it in winter too
You’ll need a small, clear hair elastic and a few bobby pins to do this Dutch braid hairstyle.
Dutch side braid and bun hairstyle video tutorial in curly hair
This Dutch braid hairstyle runs diagonally across the back of your head from your left temple to the right side of your neck.
- Starting near your left temple, take a 2 inch section of hair and split into three.
- Begin your Dutch braid. This is the same as a French braid just in reverse. Instead of crossing the sections over, you cross the sections under.
- After crossing the left section under the middle, and the right under the left, start to add in more hair to combine into the braid.
- Continue braiding in a diagonal line across the back of your head. Take large sections from across your head to minimise part lines.
- Once all your hair has been added to the braid, finish in a regular braid. Secure the end of your braid with a small clear hair elastic.
- S-T-R-E-T-C-H out your braid! This is the most important step. It emphasises the shape of your Dutch braid and makes your hair look thicker.
- Twist the end of your braid up and around to form the bun. Tuck the ends of your hair in and arrange your hair in a flat, flower shaped bun. Pin in place with bobby pins.
