Glamorous Dutch Braid Step by Step


Create a Dutch braid, which starts at the crown of the head. Tie the end with an elastic band.

Pull gently at the strands on each side to widen the braid.

Using a tail comb, gently tease hair at the front of the head to create a small quiff at the centre.

Gently tease out the sides of the hair with a tail comb and lightly spritz with hair spray. Try Great Lengths Soft Finish Spray.
