The next thing we’re going to do is the Dutch braid. What you want to do is start with a section on the top like we did in a French braid, pull the hair together without getting your comb tangled, pull it through. I’m going to take three sections just like in a French braid only I’m going to go under the middle section, next I’m going to take a loop from a section from the side and gather it with a left section here and go underneath the middle just like in a reverse braid. I’m not sure if this is called the Dutch braid although I’ve been told it is I’m sure there’s plenty of different names for everything what I’m going to do is I’m going to take the side of this comb and pull it smooth here so it looks prettier. Gather it with the right section and go under the middle and pull it tight and that looks pretty, take some from the left side and attach it with the left strand and go under the middle section and grab some more from the right side, in with the right section and go under the middle strand. Each/Every person has an easier way to do it and this isn’t mine but the French braid I think it’s a little bit easier because you’re going on top, this is going underneath but it’s such a pretty look and you can add Baby’s breath or pretty flowers in the French braid to make it special for a wedding and pretty ribbons or bows always look great and underneath the section.
