Dutch Braid Half Up-do
This is one of the hairstyles that I do most often. It’s a nice variation from just a regular dutch braid, and I prefer having part of my hair down as it helps keep the length to my hairstyle. I’m usually either doing a regular dutch braid, or this really pretty half up-do on the girls that I live with.
What you’ll need: comb, clear elastic bobbles, hairspray (optional)
Time it takes: 5-10 minutes
How to do it:
1. Separate the hair into a half up-do and temporarily pull the bottom half of the hair together into a bobble.
2. Part the top half of the hair in the middle.
3. Begin a dutch braid using one of the sides of the parting. Do this by taking a small section of hair and split it into three strands. Take the right strand and cross it underneath the middle strand, and then take the left strand and cross it under the middle, each time you cross the hair add in a small piece of hair into the braid. When you run out of hair to add in, continue with a regular braid. Secure it at the end with a clear elastic bobble.
4. Do the same for the other side of the parting.
5. Secure the hairstyle in place with hairspray (optional).
