Tutorial: French braid vs Dutch braid

Hey girl!

It's time for these 2 equally pretty braids, the French and Dutch braid. We've seen a lot of hairstyle combination with these braids and we can't say anything but beautiful. Now, before we come up with those dazzling hairstyles we will learn the basic on how to DIY french and dutch braid.

French braid. You've seen this many times before but really don't bother much because you don't know how to do it on your own hair. You could do this as a side braid or back braid. Now, it's time to do it yourself. Let's start! In this tutorial, I did a french side braid.






Step 1. Divide your hair in 3-strands.




Step 2. First, place the strand nearest you, we marked as #1 strand, OVER the center strand; #2 strand. Then, place the strand farthest you, # 3 strand, OVER the strand positioned in the center (In this case, the #1 strand).









Step 3. Now, let's incorporate some hair on the next braiding. Do the same thing as step 2 with hair incorporation on each side of the braid. Get the strand nearest you (#2 strand in this case). Incorporate some hair on the side of the braid in that strand and place it OVER the center strand (#3 strand). Then, do the same as the strand farthest from you (#1 strand), incorporate some hair and place it OVER the center strand (#2 strand)


Step 4. Do this all the way down your hair. If you don't have hair to incorporate just do the braiding as you did on step 2.

FRENCH BRAID


Dutch braid. The rule in making both of this braid is the same. What makes dutch braid stand out literally is the actual braid, same as the french braid, was placed inside out making it more visible and attention-seeking. Let's start! In this tutorial, I did a dutch side braid.






Step 1. Divide your hair in 3-strands.



Step 2. First, place the strand nearest you, we marked as #1 strand, UNDER the center strand; #2 strand. Then, place the strand farthest you, # 3 strand, UNDER the strand positioned in the center (In this case, the #1 strand).






Step 3. Now, let's incorporate some hair on the next braiding. Do the same thing as step 2 with hair incorporation on each side of the braid. Get the strand nearest you (#2 strand in this case). Incorporate some hair on the side of the braid in that strand and place it UNDER the center strand (#3 strand). Then, do the same as the strand farthest from you (#1 strand), incorporate some hair and place it UNDER the center strand (#2 strand)



Step 4. Do this all the way down your hair. If you don't have hair to incorporate just do the braiding as you did on step 2.

DUTCH BRAID


Remember the simple rules: On the french braid, everything was place OVER while on dutch braid, it was placed UNDER. Yes, almost the same steps but with different beautiful results.

What's your favorite? French, Dutch, or both? Tell me more about it.
