Double Dutch Braided Wreath

I hope everyone is having a nice summer (for those of you in the US)! Today I’ll be showing you how to do a double dutch braid wreath, which you can tie off in a ponytail or a low bun. The trick to this hairstyle is no definite part down the back of your head, creating a seamless and neat look, hence the “wreath” effect. I did this on my sister, but it’s definitely DIY-friendly as well. Thank you to my sisters for helping with modeling and photography!

Items needed: Comb, three hair ties, a spritz of water (optional), hairspray (optional)

Time: 5-10 minutes

Difficulty: Easy/Medium

……………………………………………..

Step-by-Step Instructions:

1.) Start with your hair down, in either a side or middle part. Remember, do not part your hair on the back of your head. I like to spray my hair with a bit of water beforehand, and then comb it, just because it keeps the fly-aways down.

2.) Start a dutch braid on the left-hand side, keeping the braid fairly close to the nape of the neck, and remembering to smooth the pieces of hair so they won’t get fuzzy.

3.) Once you get to the middle of the back of your head, remember to not pull the hair super tight, so the hair will stay in a somewhat relaxed position, in order to hide your scalp. The braid should look like this:

4.) Now repeat the same dutch braid on the other side, still keeping the braid low to ensure the wreath’s form.

5.) Tie off the braid, and then pancake both braids to give more volume. This is important!

6.) Overlap the braids, and finally, tie them off into a ponytail.

7.) Add an accessory, and maybe a little hairspray, and you’re all done! I love this hairstyle because it gives such a sweet and simple look, as opposed to the messy dutch braid looks. You could even add some wand curls to make it more formal.

You could also try a bun instead of a ponytail, which would also look really nice, especially with some fresh flowers.

That’s all I’ve got for today! Hope you enjoyed this summer hairstyle! And if you’re interested, you can still  take our survey here.
