Same-Side Dutch Braid | Cute Hairstyles

So today’s braided hairstyle is fairly simple because it only requires that you know how to Dutch Braid, or sometimes called an “outtie” or Reverse French Braid.

You simply start at the front right side of the head {really, either side will do fine… it is just a matter of your preference}, and begin Dutch braiding.  To start, bring the right strands in normally for the Dutch Braid but bring the left strands over the top of the head to be included in the braid on the side. When you are at the base of the head, you simply braid the rest of the hair into a regular side braid and tie off with a hairband.

This hairstyle is perfect for girls of all ages, and is a simple braid style that can be included in your every-growing hairstyle repertoir. For my older girls, I prefer to loosen the braid and even “messy” it up a bit for the modern look that is so popular today.  Enjoy!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, one hairband, hairspray, accessory {if desired}

Time Requirement: 5-7 minutes

Skill Level: Medium
