Picture of Hairstyle Tutorial: How to do Side-Swept Dutch Braid:
- This hairstyle works in straight, wavy and curly hair. Braids hold better in hair that has a little texture. If your hair is freshly washed or slips out of braids easily, spray some dry shampoo lightly to add some texture.
- Start by parting your hair in a deep side part and then separating a 1-2 inch section of hair along your hairline. You can clip or tie the rest of your hair out of the way.
- Start with a small section by your part and split it into three.
- Begin to form a Dutch braid that follows your hairline. Bring the left section under the middle then the left under the right.
- Start adding in hair to your braid by combining more hair with the left and right sides as you braid under into the middle.
- Continue braiding to your ear and then finish your braid and secure the end with a small, clear hair elastic. Or choose an elastic that matches your hair colour.
- Stretch the braid out! It’s so important and makes your braid look much thicker and wider.
