It’s Friday – hair tutorial time! This pancaked side Dutch braid is just what you need this weekend. It’s totally ‘on-trend’, easy to do, and cute! Not to mention practical and a great upgrade from a mom ponytail. If you know how to Dutch braid, you’re good to go! If not, no worries, I’ve included a video at the end of this post.
Simple Dutch Braid Tutorial
What you’ll need:
It’s that easy, guys! This Dutch braid has been a go-to hairstyle for me lately. It’s really perfect because it’s not a lot of work but it’s still very cute. It’s also very stylish right now, I’ve been seeing it every where! Oh and I also shared in the video an alternate way to wear this style – a braided side bun. You basically wrap the braid around in the back and you’ve got yourself a Dutch braid bun!
Although I think that is pretty, I think I prefer the braid. By the way, I know my hair is super long right now, but if you have medium length hair you could still do it! Even ladies with short hair can do a variation of this Dutch braid. Try braiding down the side as far as you can go, pancaking it and securing with a hair tie. If it’s too short, you can always bobby pins the ends. Of course this wouldn’t work on a pixie cut, but you get the point!
The video for this style is below, it’s only about 6 minutes long! I know most of you are so busy you don’t have time to watch long videos, so I try to make my tutorials as short as possible! If you’d like to, you can subscribe to my YouTube channel here, I’d love to have you!
