Reverse French Front | Dutch Braids

A month or so ago we posted the Lauren Conrad French Front hairstyle video tutorial. Since that time, many of our followers have asked that I provide a tutorial for this same hairdo, but in reverse (outtie) or Dutch braiding style…

Items Needed: Spray bottle, rat-tail comb, 1 clear elastic band.

Time Requirement:  3-5 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

You can view this video below.  Keep in mind, you can finish this hairstyle any number of ways.  You can tuck the braid under a down ‘do, like often seen, or you can wrap the braid into a fun ponytail (with accessories).   This is completely up to you.  It is a hairstyle that can be used on girls of all ages, moms included!

Happy Hairdoing!

    I love this braid. I use it all the time, paired with all different styles. My favorite “swept back” look. 🙂

    Dear Mindy
    I’ve always been great at braiding just plain braiding after finding you on YouTube I have learned how to braid a French Braid, Cage Braid, Snake Braid, Wrap-Around Braid and more. But for some weird reason I can only do it on myself. Weird.

    Thanks so much for teaching me!!

    Hey! I am 14 years old and I have a winter formal coming up. I have seen some of your videos and you are amazing. I have very curly hair, and for my dance i wanted to do a side bun that shows my curls. I was inspired by a Taylor Swift hairstyle. I would love if you could make a video for me as soon as possible. Thanks.
