The star of the hour: the Dutch braid! It’s such a versatile braid, as you can wear it in so many ways, but our favourite way of wearing it will always be the feminine crown version. It’s cute, easy, longlasting (if done with our guidance) and looks amazing with any outfit. Let’s step up the braid game and look stunning this weekend! Psssst… If you follow our step-by-step your hair will still look cute Monday morning when you crawl out of bed.
- Section your hair into smaller sections and apply Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray from the roots and halfway down the lengths. This product will create great texture for the braid and also make your braid last longer.
- Use Kevin Murphy Free.Hold Styling Crème on the ends and halfway up the lengths. This will give your hair a natural shine and hold.
- Blow-dry your hair dry with GHD Air Hair Dryer.
- Make a small section of hair right behind your right ear, and then divide this section into 3 smaller sections.
- Start a Dutch braid – Here is how: You have 3 sections, right section, left section and the base (the one in the middle). Take the righ section under the base, and then take the left section under the baae. Then add a small section of hair to the right section and cross it under the base again. Repeat this technique around the head so you create a “crown”.
- When you reach the part where you started your braid, then braid the tail/ends into a normal braid.
- Then secure it with an elastic. Make sure it is see-through, as you don’t want it to show.
- Tuck the tail under the braid so it creates a circle / crown around your head.
- Use bobby pins to secure the tail – These should not be visible.
- You can leave it like this or you can make it messier by carefully pulling the small sections of the braid so it becomes more loose.
- When you like the shape and messiness of the hair, spray with Kérastase Couture Styline Laque.
