Read on to learn how to create a dutch braid with this quick yet informative step-by-step tutorial:


Start with dry shampoo.

Start off by applying dry shampoo at the roots of your hair. This will give your strands some volume and a touch of added grip – it will be much easier to braid with hair that has some grit to it! We suggest Love Beauty and Planet Volume and Bounty Dry Shampoo for maximum volume! 


Create a three-strand braid.

Gather a small section of hair at the front of your hairline and begin by creating a three-strand braid. Make sure to cross the hair under rather than over in order to create a dutch style


Add new hair.

Keep on adding new hair as you work your way down the braid! 


Secure the end.

Secure the end of your braid with a hair tie.


Spritz hairspray.

Mist your finished look with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture Hold Level 1 to secure your braid and give it a touch of texture.
