Have you ever tried a Dutch braids? They are so versatile and can be an easy way to change up your hairstyle or get you from the office to a formal event. I love them because they are cool, easy and they make me look like I have it together even when I don’t!
What Is Dutch Braid ?
If you are new to braiding, the Dutch style can be quite challenging. The braid is inside out, so it stands out from your head. It’s also known as an invert braid (huh?) or a reverse French braid.
What Is The Difference Between Dutch And French Braids?
A Dutch braid is very similar to a French braid. The main difference is that in a Dutch braid, the strands of hair are crossed under instead of over. This creates an edgier look for your braid and gives it more texture than a French braid. People also call Dutch braids French braids or reverse French braids.
It is important to note that while some people use the name Dutch braid interchangeably with fishtail braid, they are not the same thing. A fishtail braid uses two sections of hair instead of three like a regular or Dutch braid.
If you are at a party or a formal event or even just to school and you don’t know how to get yourself ready, do this hairstyle! It will take some practice but once you get the hang of it. It is easy and you can do it home! There are many ways to do this style of hair, but here is one way that I find the easiest and most effective.

What you need: A brush, some hair ties, and hairspray.
- Brush your hair
- Part your hair down the middle, have it be an even part or make it slightly off center.
- Take a section of hair from one side of the part and split it into three sections.
- Start braiding as usual but make sure to add in a piece of hair every time you cross over a strand to the middle.
- When you reach the back of your head and cannot add any more hair, braid it all the way down and tie it with a clear elastic band.
- Repeat on the other side.
And there you go! Enjoy your new hairstyle.
