Side Dutch Braid

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!

Simple No Heat Kate Middleton Hair Style

A little while ago I did a no-heat Kate Middleton hair tutorial. It’s funny because you think that her hair must be this complicated thing and that you’d have to have a stylist to do it. But I am no stylist and it was easy peezy. So easy you don’t even […]
