Dutch Accent Ponytail | Short Hairstyles

So, a few weeks ago, Bailey posted an “Outfit-of-the-Day” {OOTD} photo on Instagram of the clothing she put together and everyone commented by asking what it was that she had done with her hair. We’ve never filmed a tutorial for this hairstyle, as it was one she had been making on her own, so we decided post her video of it today!

If you know how to create a simple Dutch Braid, this tutorial will be very easy for you. You can incorporate this in any number of combinations and choose to also hair wrap the ponytail, if you wish.
