Double Dutchback | Heidi Klum Hairstyles

My dad is so cute! He’s so proud of our family, our fans, and what this hair thing has accomplished! Dad’s always texting or emailing me photos of hairstyles he sees when he is running errands, or even watching TV!

Double Dutchback | Heidi Klum Hairstyles

Several weeks ago, he emailed me a photo of a hairstyle worn by Heidi Klum during an episode America’s Got Talent. {Funny thing, I had seen the episode and thought her hair looked awesome!} In the email, he hinted that we “should seriously film a video of it!”

Dad, this one is for you! Today we are going to show you how to create an edgy Side Double Dutchback hairstyle!

Double Dutchback Rocker Hairstyle

We used a base of subtle waves for this hairstyle, and the combo consists of two Dutch braids on only one side of the head. The braids go back, then wrap down, and underneath the back of the head where the braids are secured an hair elastic. This cute hairstyle provides an “edgy” look that would be perfect for competitive dance or cheer teams. {I can foresee several dance groups wearing this one, for sure!} We wear it around here to provide that perfect POP with cute jeans, sneakers, and a t-shirt.

This style can also be worn for several days, and looks adorable with straight, curly, or wavy hair! If you are careful with it, you can wear it for several days in a row, too!

It is another way to get the “shaved” look without committing to a razor and half-bald head! {We’ve posted another single single side-up hairstyle called Side Flat Twists here before, and it was a very popular one.}

Please leave a comment below letting me know what TV shows you love, especially those that showcase great hair! I’d like to know!

Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, spray wax, 1 hair elastic, 1 ponytail holder, hairspray {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 7-10 minutes

Skill Level: Medium

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by parting a section of hair about on one side, about 1-1.5 inchs above the ear, towards the back of the head…
  2. Then, slightly curve the part to follow your hairline above the nape of the neck…
  3. Secure the rest of the hair out of the way with a ponytail holder…
  4. Create a Dutch braid with the section you just created above the ear, braiding it back and down, and underneath the set-aside hair…
  5. When you reach the back corner of the head, at the nape of the neck, feel free to braid down a few simple braid stitches, and secure with an elastic…
  6. Now go back to the side and part a new section of hair about 1-1.5 inches above the the previous part, following it down and along the back as before…
  7. Secure the remaining hair, again, out of the way with a ponytail holder…
  8. With your newly created parted section, create a second Dutch braid, following it down along the back as before…
  9. When you reach the back corner of the head, feel free to remove the elastic from the previous braid, and combine the two braids together and re-secure with the elastic…
  10. Lastly, remove the ponytail holder from the set-aside section, and allow it to fall naturally {this will hide the elastic from the braids and also give your hair that completed, fun, edgy “shaved” look}…
  11. Add soft curls to the hair, and hairspray {if desired}.

Happy Hairstyling!

A week ago, while we were in LA for BeautyCon, we met up with a good friend, Andrea Brooks from AndreasChoice. She and her sister Brittany are twins as well, and they are fascinated with Brooklyn and Bailey. So much so, that they decided to film a video together to determine if Twinepathy {twin telepathy} really exists!

The video is now on the girls’ BrooklynAndBailey YouTube channel, so feel free to click below and watch it! Prepare to laugh!

  1. i’m doing this hairstyle for my niece because it’s her holy communion (do you call it so in usa?)!! thanks!

  2. Hello! My name is Emma, and through the past couple months I’ve started using your channel to style my hair. As much as I love what you have to offer, I also like to add my own touches and figure new methods out on my own. I’ve taken inspiration from one of my favorite shows, American Horror Story, to create a curled/waved updo style. (keep in mind that this show is intended for mature audiences!) The character Nora Montgomery in the first season wears her hair curly and pinned behind her head, with some pieces loose in front. This style definitely has a vintage look to it, as Nora is a ghost who lived many years ago. Although this show is not appropriate for the little ones, I thought the hairstyle was very cute!

  3. Hi,

    This is my first time at this site and it was a wonderful experience. I watched the video about the challenged and it was so interesting and so funny. I always waiting for the twins to respond at the same answer lol. I love this. I will wait for the other challenge. send me an updates. Thanks

  4. Thanks for sharing all these hairstyles! I would love to learn how to do some of the braids from the show Vikings… I think a braid like this was on there!

  5. Hi! I saw this episode, too, and I was working out in my head how to get the same look. It’s probably not something I’d wear everyday, but it looks so accurate!

    I don’t know if you’ve heard of it or not, but there’s a show on abc called Once Upon a Time. some of the hairstyles in that show are really pretty (especially a certain princess with skin as white as snow…). I’d love to see a tutorial from there!
