FRENCH BRAID WITH A TWIST – HAIR TUTORIAL
I love a good old classic, but sometimes it’s nice to spice things up! And a little peekaboo dutch braid emerging from the french braid does exactly that. The end result is edgy and quite easy to achieve.
Peekaboo french braid tutorial
- Normally when you do a french braid you can brush all of your hair back. This version will work best if you part your hair how you like it. Next, separate about a 2 inch wide section starting at the crown running down through the middle. Secure the rest of the hair out of the way.
- Start braiding that section in a dutch braid. Pick up a thin slice at the top and divide it into 3 strands. Start crossing the outer strands under the middle one and as you go down, add in new slices of hair from each side to the outer strands. Try to keep the braid as tight as possible.
- Once you reach the occipital bone you can stop adding in new hair to the braid and tie it off with a clear elastic.
- Now place your fingers slightly below your temples and slice the hair towards the back. The top sections you just separated will be the outer strands and the tail from the braid will be the middle strand.
- Cross the outer strands over the middle one and again, add in new hair from the sides as you braid your way down.
- Tie the braid with a clear elastic and pull it out for more volume.
TIP: When braiding the french braid, don’t take very small sections. It’s ok to take large chunks actually, so that the braid is even looser and contrasts more with the tight dutch braid. And the bonus is that it will be super quick to do it 😉
