Double Dutch Braid Hairstyle - Video Tutorial

Today’s Triple Double Dutch Braids hairstyle is inspired by a hairstyle I saw in a movie a couple months back.  The girl wearing it was beautiful and was really into basketball.  She wore a style similar to this and I just loved the 3 braids that ended in 2 braids.

  We love French braids at our house, but sometimes I get tired of just the 2 braids down each side that Bee requests.  These triple double dutch braids add a nice change to an otherwise typical braided hairstyle.

  McKayla has done 3 or even 4 Dutch braids, but just leaves all of them hanging down in back.

  She really loved that from the front it looked one way, and in back it has a “little surprise” and ends differently!  We’re calling this one triple double dutch braids since it starts as 3 braids, but ends up in just two!

Here’s our video showing how we did it.  If you have trouble watching the video, go HERE to watch it on our Channel.

2- With the center section, starting near the forehead, begin a Dutch braid

If you need help with Dutch braids, go HERE to see McKayla’s Dutch Braiding tutorial.  You could easily do this with French braids as well, but I think the Dutch braid adds an extra pretty element to the hairstyle.  Go HERE for our regular French braid tutorial.

12- Go back and adjust braids so they look uniform in thickness as you’ve pancaked them.  Make the 3 braids near the nape of the neck fairly wide so they sort of blend together

Double Dutch Braid Hairstyle - Video Tutorial

This double dutch braid hairstyle is a classic that we’ve all worn at some point in our lives.

It became more popular in recent years as pop culture celebrities began sporting it on a regular basis, but we all know it was popular when we were kids.

A simple braided style this is ideal for longer hair but can be done on almost any length of hair that will fit into a ponytail. This tutorial will break down the steps for those who are new to braiding making it easy for anyone to create.

Double Dutch Braid Hairstyle

If you’ve been worried about how to braid hair, this is a great choice to try. It is a bit more than basic plait, but the process really is simple. I love that it works for most lengths of hair, but mostly, I how it keeps my hair my face, tightly braided, and sleek.

This is a style that is definitely more playful than some of the others we have shared. While it is beautiful, it’s more of a style for everyday wear or even casual wear. I’ve seen this style in the gym on a regular basis, and it is definitely more popular with teens and the younger crowd. That said, anyone can wear this style and look amazing.

Another simple hairstyle that is easy to create is this easy half up half down hairstyle. It has a unique twist that makes it a bit more stylish but is a classic choice. Once you are a bit more comfortable with braids, you’ll want to try this gorgeous mermaid half braid. Such a stunning style! This princess braid updo is another great style that you will fall in love with creating!

Technically, this is two French braids. Each side of a double dutch braid is simply a classic French braid. This style is popular for those who want more fun and child style.

It is also much easier to create this style on your own hair versus the classic French braid.

Practice this style and once you get it down, you’ll see a traditional single plait French braid will be much easier to manage.

Tools I Use

  • Wide tooth comb
  • Detangling brush
  • Hair rubber bands

Other hair tools I love:

  • OGX Dry Shampoo
  • Argan Oil
  • Paul Mitchell Super Clean Sculpting Gel

How to Create a Double Dutch Braid Hairstyle

Begin by combing and detangling your hair then parting it down the middle to create two equal sections of hair to braid. I to loosely tie off one side while I work on the other side so they don’t get tangled.

Step 1

Once you have the hair parted, you will begin near the forehead by grabbing a small section of hair and dividing it into three equal parts as you would with any traditional braid.

Step 2

With each new cross of the braid, you will gather a small section of hair and incorporate it into the section on either side. As you move one side over on the braid, you will gather just a small section right before moving it and crossing over another section of hair.

Continue this process gathering more hair from either side and including in the braid as you move backward, but braiding downward toward the name of your neck as you go.

Step 3

Once you reach the back and nape of your neck, you will continue braiding regularly down the length of your hair from the base of the head to the end.

Once you reach the end of the section of hair, you will secure with a hair tie of your choice.

Step 4

Now you will go up through the braid against your scalp and pull slightly to loosen the braid slightly and smoothing to create a sleek appearance.

Step 5

Repeat the same process on the other section of hair.

Once both sides are braided, you can add a bow or special accent to the braids if desired or leave plain our model. A simple ribbon tied at the end of both braids is a cute accent or a few strategically placed accent bobby pins can add a fun element to the braids.

Wear your double dutch braids every day for a fun and easy style perfect for any length hair.


Double Dutch Braid High Buns

Double Dutch Braid Hairstyle - Video Tutorial

I promised a video tutorial for this style exactly one year ago. Time flew by way faster than I imagined but I’m excited to finally be sharing it today.

This hairstyle incorporates two braids trailing up to two little messy buns and it’s a lot easier to do than you might think. My favorite tip is flipping your head upside down so the hair stays the way as you braid.

“Space Buns” was one of my very favorite styles in middle school. It was my go-to whenever I was in a pinch and needed to throw my hair into something cute.

This a really fun way to style your hair for the gym, especially with the braids, and would easily transition into an everyday style. I hope you enjoy the tutorial and be sure to let me know what you think down below in the comments!

Double Dutch Braid High Buns Supplies:

  • Rattail comb
  • 2 Hair bands
  • 2 clear elastic bands
  • Bobby pins
  • Medium-hold hairspray

Double Dutch Braid High Bun Instruction:

  • Step 1 / Start by parting the hair wherever you normally part it. I did a diagonal part from the left side back towards the right
  • Step 2 / Then part the hair down the back of the head creating two halves.
  • Step 3 / Then tie off one side.
  • Step 4 / Next flip your head upside down and pick up a small section of hair at the nape of neck, dividing it into three sections for the braid.
  • Step 5 / Begin a dutch braid by crossing the right strand under the middle and then the left strand under the middle.
  • Step 6 / Now cross the right strand under the middle and then pick up a new section of hair crossing it under the middle as well.
  • Step 7 / Then do the same thing on the left side crossing the left strand under the middle and bringing a new section into the braid.
  • Step 8 / Repeat those steps crossing the side strands under the middle strand and working up the head.
  • Step 9 / Once you’ve brought in a section of hair at the top of the ear then just braid the section a little further down in a regular braid.
  • Step 10 / Cross a bobby pin over the bottom of the braid so it doesn’t unravel.
  • Step 11 / Then do the same thing with the hair on the left creating a second dutch braid, adding in hair until the braid reaches the ear and then braid a little further down and cross a bobby pin over the end.
  • Step 12 / Next combine all of the hair on the right side together and wrap a hair band once over the hair and then twist it over your dominant hand.
  • Step 13 / Remove the bobby pins from the ends of the braid and carefully unravel it.
  • Step 14 / Now flip the ponytail forwards and spread it around the hair band to form the base of the bun.
  • Step 15 / Then wrap the hair band twice more over this base.
  • Step 16 / Then gently pull on the edges to make it a little bigger and tighten it against the head.
  • Step 17 / Now do the same thing with the hair on the left side, creating a little bun next to the first one.
  • Step 18 / With the ends left sticking out, loop them back towards the hair band and tuck them in creating another loop.
  • Step 19 / Then bobby pin down any pieces that are sticking out and go back over the braids pulling on the edges so they’re wider.
  • Step 20 / Then set the style with a medium-hold hairspray.


A Step-by-Step Dutch Braid Tutorial Even Beginners Can Handle

Once upon a time, the term “Dutch braids” was not even in our vocabulary, but that feels a lifetime ago. Now, Dutch braids have become a cool-girl staple—the “It” braid you need in your hairstyle repertoire.

There’s only one issue: They’re not exactly intuitive. How many times have you started with the intention of creating Dutch braids and halfway through realized you’re actually just French-braiding? No more.

Also known as a reverse braid, Dutch braiding involves crossing the hair underneath sections versus over (as with French braiding). 

We called in celebrity hairstylist Irinel de Leon to show precisely how to master the Dutch braid—step by step. And we spared no detail. “This hairstyle is really great for any hair type, ” she says.

“Those with straight or wavy hair can wear it overnight for pretty wearable braids come morning.” For those with curly hair, Dutch braids are a great protective style to couple with a treatment or hair oil as well.

Plus, though this style works beautifully on dry hair, it can be done on wet hair before sleeping for luscious waves come morning. Scroll through to learn how to Dutch braid.

Meet the Expert

Irinel de Leon is a Los Angeles-based celebrity hair stylist and curly hair expert. Her clients include Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, Karlie Kloss, and Chrissy Teigen.

Start with center-parted hair and brush out any tangles. “It'll make it so much easier to braid and feed hair in as you work your way down if there are no tangles,” says de Leon.

“You also want to make sure your part is as straight as possible—you can use the bridge of your nose as a guide and follow upwards with a tail comb.

” It should feel the part is in the middle of the nape of your neck once you reach the bottom. Place a section of hair over each shoulder.

de Leon recommends prepping the hair before braiding with a gel or pomade to ensure a clean surface to feed the hair in and also to help the Dutch braid maintain its hold. Ouidad's Clear Control Pomade ($26) tames all the hair down for a clean finish without feeling heavy.



Grab three small pieces (about half an inch or less) at your hairline.


Dutch Braid

The key point to remember with Dutch braids is to weave each piece under rather than over (basically the opposite of a French braid). The piece on the right goes under the middle, and then the piece on the left goes under that.


Continue Braiding

Repeat the pattern of crossing the right section under the middle strand, and then the left section under the middle strand. Keep adding more hair (about a half- to three-quarter-inch) from the root each time you weave a new section.


Regular Braid

Once you reach the nape of your neck, switch to a regular three-strand braid.




Other Side

Repeat the process on the other side.


Keep Braiding

Maintain tension as you braid—the tighter the better. If you’re into the loose, feathery dutch braids, you can always pull the edges of the braid out slowly for a wider and feathery finish when you're done.



For a messier Dutch braid, pull the loops to open them up. If you're prone to frizz on your braids, spritzing on an anti-frizz hair serum— the Josh Rosebrook Serum Spray ($28)—after braiding will help tame them.

Keep scrolling for a bonus tutorial that'll take your Dutch braids from day to night.





Grab each braid and pull them across your head to the opposite side.



Lift the tails up, lining them up against the inside edge of the existing braid.



Using bobby pins—we love the Sephora Collection No-Slip Bobby Pins ($5)—pin the ends of each braid into the braid it's lined up next to. Insert the pin in a downward motion, away from your face (the pin should go into the braid so you don’t see it). Be sure to tuck and pin the ends of your hair into the braid for a clean finish.


All Done

And that’s it! Your beautiful Dutch braid updo is complete.
