How cute is that Dutch braid? The rest of the tutorial shows how to fix hair  as shown or how to make a braided crown with messy bun underneath. It doesn’t look too done, which is nice. Have to try this on one on my daughter for a test run.

Enjoy the day!

  1. I never had the gift of “braiding.” My daughter always had to ask a friend to braid her hair, from elementary school through high school. I blame my lack of expertise on being left handed! (I do love the blue bootie!)

    • I’m a bit hair-challenged myself. I always had shorter hair growing up, so never learned how to do these intricate styles. You might try this dutch braid (the movement is underhanded instead of an over-handed french braid). I found it hard to do on myself (a rightie), but easy to do on my daughter. Maybe this is what your left hand needs!
      Thanks for stopping by :)
